Kanye West's fifth studio album, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, was certified Platinum by the RIAA on January 11, 2011. Seven years, three months and nine days later, it has been certified 2x Platinum.
Released on November 22, 2010, the undisputed best album of the current decade is one of 53 of West's works to earn at least a Gold certification from the RIAA.
Of note, all eight of West's full-length studio albums have earned at least Platinum certification, as well as his collaborative album with JAY-Z, Watch The Throne, with College Dropout and Late Registration tied as his two highest-selling works (3x Platinum).
West's latest certification marks his eight of the current calendar year, following Platinum single certifications in February and March for "Pt. 2," "Ultralight Beam," "Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1," "Famous," "N*ggas In Paris" and "Champions."
Kanye will look to add to his trophy case this spring when the G.O.O.D. Music head honcho releases not one, but two new albums.
