The year’s fourth quarter is being greeted with dismal news: not one single album released this year has been certified platinum.
Indeed, despite at least 60 songs shifting over 1 million copies, their parent albums cannot proclaim such.

But, this year’s looking to be much worse.
To add insult to injury, 2014’s best selling album by a solo act is Beyonce‘s self titled fifth album…which was released in December 2013.
We’re waiting on Rihanna, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, and Taylor Swift to save the day.
