During a private event at the Soho House Miami Beach, the RIAA’s chief operating officer, Michelle Ballantyne and Epic Records Chairwoman and chief executive officer, Sylvia Rhone honored him with the presentation of gold & platinum plaques to celebrate this remarkable milestone.
This honor includes 9 albums and 68 separate songs as he gets closer to 100 million units (counting US sales and streams) and earns one of the highest totals in history according to the RIAA. Future was also presented a plaque for his album “I NEVER LIKED YOU” at gold status and “WAIT FOR U” hit double platinum and “PUFFIN ON ZOOTIEZ” reached certified gold.
Future is also became the “most-streamed artist on Spotify worldwide on April 29th” and the “5th artist in history to simultaneously debut at #1 on Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard 200” with the album “I NEVER LIKED YOU”, so it’s no question his popularity is akin to his success.
