Kanye West would not be Kanye without both acclaim and controversy. Lord knows he’s accumulated plenty of that thru this past year. Today he can celebrate as Billboard as stated that his 8th studio album, The Life of Pablo, is set to go Platinum. The Life of Pablo was released on February of last year. Platinum certification from the RIAA reflects a million units being sold. There is no official breakdown as to how these were accumulated based off of streams and sales. A Rep from his label Def Jam stated that Kanye’s album was the first streaming only album to go Platinum even though TLOP was briefly on sale thru Kanye’s Offical Site. Since the release of TLOP, Kanye went on his Saint Pablo tour which he later canceled due to health concerns.
