On Friday (May 5), the RIAA announced that, as of April 25, Future has earned Gold certifications to commemorate sales in excess of 500k units for his newly-released self-titled album FUTURE, as well as singles "Selfish" (featuring Rihanna) and "Draco."
Along with the seven certifications that Future received on April 14, which included two Gold albums (Pluto, Honest), one Gold single ("Blow a Bag") and four Platinum singles ("Fuck Up Some Commas," "Used to This," "Low Life" and "Mask Off"), the ATL hitmaker has now collected 10 total plaques in the past 22 days. Career to date, Future has 31 total certifications.
If it wasn't already obvious after FUTURE and HNDRXX went No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in back-to-back weeks, Future's decision to flood the market with new music has not only paid off for his fresh material, but it has also given his past singles and albums a nice bump.
On Spotify alone, Future is currently averaging over 28 million monthly listeners, which makes him currently the 17th most streamed artist in the world on the popular streaming service.,
