Fetty Wap's Debut Album Just Crossed A New Threshold

Congrats Fetty!

Published March 3, 2016

Fetty Wap was one of hip hop’s biggest stars in 2015 with hit after hit to prove it.

Now, the New Jersey native has something else to show how successful he was last year: sales. His self-titled debut album is now certified platinum by the RIAA, just over 5 months after it was released.

The platinum certification includes on-demand audio and video streams, not just physical/digital sales. A track sale equivalent is also factored in Gold & Platinum Album Award certifications thanks to new RIAA rules.

Fetty also recently dropped his emoji pack, which has been one of the more memorable ones dropped by a musician to date.

Congratulations Fetty!
