Kanye West Earns 7th Straight Platinum Album with ‘Yeezus’
By Shannon Carlin
Kanye West‘s Yeezus might not have earned the kind of first week sales that people boast about—327,000 to be exact—but he’s more than made up for it in the recent months.
According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), Kanye’s latest album has gone Platinum after seven months.
This means that’s all seven of his albums—The College Dropout (2004), Late Registration (2005), Graduation (2007), 808s & Heartbreak (2008), My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010), Watch the Throne (2011) and Yeezus—have officially all gone platinum.
