Ariana Grande has another milestone to celebrate as her latest studio album, thank u, next, was certified platinum by the RIAA.
On Monday (July 1), the RIAA made it official and stated that Grande’s chart-topper with “7 Rings” and “Break Up With Your Boyfriend, I’m Bored” had become the first album of 2019 to reach platinum status. She jumped to Twitter to thank the RIAA for the honor as well as her fans for all of their support.
“Holy s—,” Grande wrote. “So incredibly grateful. Thank you so much listening and for loving something that was quite hard (but also [very] fun at times ) to make.” To her fans she added, “Thank you for showing me that I’m not alone in the events that have caused me pain and that it’s okay to share and open up sometimes. I appreciate you all so much and am endlessly grateful for the consistent love and support you’ve shown me and this project.”
Grande already is the most streamed artist on Spotify with 46 million monthly listeners so this is only icing on the cake for her!
