Just last week, Bryson Tiller took to Instagram to reveal that his debut album, TRAPSOUL, had officially gone gold. This means that since its release in October 2015, it had sold and/or streamed over 500,000 copies. Turns out, he was sharing the news over a month late, and now there’s an even bigger update: TRAPSOUL is platinum! “so a few days ago, we told everyone that this album went Gold. They actually told me it went Gold a month or so ago but wanted me to wait until my Radio City Show to tell people,” Bryson began in an Instagram post today. “Well…. Right after the show they surprised me and told me that T R A P S O U L is officially a Platinum Album. words cannot explain how i feel. thank you if you bought this, you changed my life.” Wow, how amazing is that?! Congrats, Pen Griffey!
