Migos can add yet another major milestone to their list of this year’s accomplishments, and it’s only four months into 2017. The hip-hop trio’s sophomore album, Culture, released back in January, and it has already reached platinum status.
The Recording Industry Association of America has deemed the album as platinum after it has reportedly sold over 1 million equivalent units, which includes both physical and digital sales, as well as overall streams on multiple platforms. While celebrating the huge news, members of the group shared their reactions of gratitude on social media. Quavo posted a photo of the album cover to Instagram, writing, “C U L T U R E Is Now Platinum. Thank You God Our Fans We Love You. We Really Put This Album Together By HAND.” Offset followed in those footsteps by writing a caption that read, “G O D I S T H E R E A S O N. #PLATNIUMWAY.” Even their manager, Coach K, celebrated the news by posting the cover art with a caption that read, “Hard Work & Dedication!!!! @migos Platinum Album “CULTURE.”
The group has a lot to celebrate, as their No. 1 single “Bad and Boujee” reached platinum status back in January shortly after it reached the top slot on the charts, while their latest single, “T-Shirt,” has recently reached gold status.
We’re not sure what the guys will do to celebrate, but fans are hoping for another surprise appearance by them for the second weekend of the 2017 Coachella Music Festival.
