Rap trio Migos known by their stage names Quavo, Takeoff and Offset have yet again hit another milestone in their music career in what seems to be a campaign to be the best in the game. This past week the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) announced a ton of projects & singles reaching gold & platinum status, including Big Sean’s “I Decided”, Future & Metro Boomin’s “Mask Off” & even Kendrick Lamar’s debut effort“Section 80” among others. On Wednesday night, ATL trio Migos took to Instagram to share that their latest album, Culture, is now also certified platinum, selling over 1 million units since being released back on January 27th.
The album debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart back in February after registering 132k copies in the first week. The project was streamed a whopping 115.6 million times, which made up 77,000 of the total units (59%).
The trio, also famous for their flashy lifestyle as well as gold accessories, had previously managed to bag a platinum plaque from their single “Bad and Boujee”, off the same album(Culture). The group has had a pair of singles go gold in the past, first with “Versace” which seemingly brought back a new awareness to the famous clothing brand and later with “Fight Night”; both earning the certification in 2015. “Bad and Boujee” though has outdone both singles.
Offset was arrested for driving with a suspended license on March 17, 2016, but was released the next day without having charges filed. He has since claimed his license was never suspended and the police detained him without just cause. The setbacks don’t seem to be slowing down the trio’s momentum and trap lovers can only expect more from them.
