Travis Scott’s ‘Astroworld’ Album Hits Platinum Status
It took the album less than three months to reach 1 million units moved. The LP, which features Drake, Frank Ocean, Pharrell, The Weeknd and more, was released on Aug. 3. It quickly reached gold, earning the certification on Aug. 10, boosted by a strong first week's show. The platinum status was obtained on Sept. 21. La Flame is now three for three. Both of his previous studio LPs, Rodeo and Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, earned platinum plaques as well.
Travis has come a very long way since the Cruis'n USA days, as evident in an Instagram post Mike Dean put up last week that shows the rapper's progression over the last five years. La Flame is a certified star at this point. He recently made his Saturday Night Live debut performing "Sicko Mode," "Skeletons" and "Astrothunder." He also participated in a hilarious skit.
La Flame's performance was good enough to impress Questlove who tweeted, "Been going to #SNL for 9 years now. Seeing that fog/ice lazer reflection jawn in person for @trvisXX was hands down one of the best stage design presentations I’ve ever seen—-and I seen a lot."
