The elated singer shared the big news on his official page and wrote in the caption:

“YE” off the OUTSIDE album is Gold in US. I’m thankful for the love and support, we go again!

“Ye”, an R&B/Hip Hop track taken off the “Outside” album, was released on August 6, 2018, under the label Atlantic Records.

In the US, the RIAA awards certification is based on the number of albums and singles sold through retail and other ancillary markets. A Gold record is a single or album that sells 500,000 units (records, tapes or compact discs).

Popular Afrobeats songs like ‘If’, and ‘Fall’, by Davido as well as ‘Come Closer’ by Wizkid have all previously achieved the massive feat.
