In an interview with GQ earlier in the week, SZA made clear that, while not taking home a GRAMMY Award earlier this year was disappointing, it's "bigger than me and a fucking trophy."

Well, what about a plaque? Or five?

On Thursday, the RIAA announced that not only is SZA's debut album, Ctrl, officially Platinum-certified, but additionally, four singles from the album have also earned new certifications. "Love Galore" and "The Weekend" are now double-Platinum, while "Broken Clocks" and "Garden (Say It Like Dat)" are Gold.

It shouldn't be long before SZA adds another certification to her resume, either. "All The Stars," her collaboration with labelmate Kendrick Lamar for Black Panther The Album, is currently No. 7 and rising on the Billboard Hot 100. Since its release on January 4, the record has generated 160 million plays on Spotify and a combined 63 million views on YouTube.
