On Monday evening (January 23), Big Sean revealed that his latest single, "Bounce Back," has been certified Gold by the RIAA.

While Sean has previously stated he "doesn't give a fuck" about making radio songs, the Def Jam emcee has enjoyed a plethora of commercial success over the past six years. "Bounce Back" marks the 13th certification—six Gold singles, five Platinum singles and one Platinum album—of Sean's ten-year recording career and his first since "Play No Games" was also certified Gold in February of 2016.

Sean's Motown neighbor Royce da 5'9", who late last year called his rap brethren "pathetically underrated," was one of the first people to congratulate Sean after news of the certification broke on social media. "I think I know a thing or two about bouncing back," Royce tweeted. "Great fukin song ... Well deserved."
