No seriously everyday I turn on the radio I hear AOTL or the Remix. My friend started singing it yesterday randomly too.

Hyped.

I was in Paris last week and it actually got some good airplay there, here in the Netherlands it isn't played on the radio...
Nice it went platinum.

Don't get too excited people. When it really is certified there will be info on it. AOTL is not even gold certified.

Here you can see the latest Kanye certifications (RIAA):

Artists rarely fork over money for a Gold certification, especially rappers. MBDTF wasn't certified Gold until it hit Platinum and it basically crossed that mark in its first week. And regardless of it being certified or not it's still a great feat it sold over 1 million and can be certified platinum at any time, which is why people refer to it as anyways. MMLP has been considered a diamond album for years even though Em didn't buy the certification this year. All it is is a plaque with a platinum record on it that the artist gets, for the fan all it needs to do is pass the mark. Telling people to 'not get excited' is dumb lol

That's indeed how it goes. :)
It's just plain stupid that people still think that sales equal certifications just like that.

It's not. What do people do with the knowledge that their favorite artist has a new certification? It's useless commercialism and people buy right into it without doubting for a second. :(

It's great that a third single released months after an album has been available commercially sold a milli, why wouldn't fans be excited? It wasn't looking to good especially with there being no official single cover or real promotion for it either. At least MBDTF has a hit on it now :yay:
