Kanye West’s ‘The Life of Pablo’ Is U.K.’s First Album to Go Gold Through Streaming Alone
The British Phonographic Industry (BPI) usually gives gold certification to albums that move over 100,000 units, while platinum status is granted at 300,000 units. Kanye recently passed the former mark through streams of his album, which wouldn't have been counted before the BPI included streaming in their sales figures in 2015. Yeezy's beasting across the globe, but that's just the norm for him.
In other Yeezy news, his wife Kim Kardashian-West recently confirmed that she and Yeezy are expecting another baby. The husband and wife, who already have a daughter (North West) and a son (Saint West), have been rumored to be awaiting the arrival of a new baby girl for a decent while now, but it was never confirmed. For her part, Kim K. didn't appreciate the rumors.
“I’ve definitely seen a lot of things, we’ve never confirmed anything,” she explained a few weeks back. “So, I think when we’re ready to talk about it we will, and I think it’s super invasive when people are just… So many details out there, and like I’ve never heard this, I’ve never heard this. Like whatever. We have not confirmed it, and that’s that. I’ll let you know when we’re ready.”
We still haven't heard Kanye comment on the matter, but maybe we will soon.
