21 Savage and Metro Boomin’s ‘Savage Mode’ Now Certified Gold
It's been a monumental breakout year for 21 Savage, as he's reached huge success following the release of his Savage Mode project with Metro Boomin last summer. Now, the 2016 XXL Freshman has reached a major milestone for his musical career, as the project is now certified gold by the RIAA.
According to the site, the project achieved gold status as of last week on May 10. The new gold plaque follows in the footsteps of the rapper achieving platinum status with his hit single, "X," that features Future back in February, as well as "No Heart" getting certified platinum back in January.
While Savage and Boomin are raking in accolades from their previous project, fans are hoping to get a taste of what is to come from their potential Savage Mode 2 project. The tape isn't officially confirmed, but it was revealed back in November that the rapper/producer duo have another 20-30 songs in the vault that fans have yet to hear.
Back in February, the Atlanta native also announced on Twitter that his debut album is on the way, but didn't give an exact date of when we could expect an release. On the label side, things are looking a bit foggy for the rapper, as L.A. Reid, who Savage originally signed with, left Epic Records this past week. There's no word on who is slated to replace him at this time, but fans are hoping it can only push releases out of Savage and other artists sooner.
And we can expect something new from 21 soon. He just wrapped up his national Issa Tour, and quickly teased something new coming June 1. He also played snippets of a new song that surfaced on social media.
Congratulations to 21 Savage and Metro Boomin on earning another plaque for Savage Mode.
