Does the RIAA‘s inclusion of streaming data when awarding certifications diminish their value?
The question above is one many continue to ask today as the gifted entertainer Bryson Tiller took to the net to announce that his debut LP ‘TRAP SOUL’ had received a platinum certification…without selling 1 million units.

Released on October 2nd 2015 ‘SOUL’ moved 22,000 units in its opening week, reaching sales of 294,000 units this month.
An impressive sales journey by today’s R&B standard.
However, what some critics are unimpressed/ puzzled by is how the set somehow managed to leap from the 294,000 mark to the 1 million milestone in a matter of weeks.
The secret to the talented R&B royal’s success?
