“Slow and steady wins the race” – an adage affirmed by the enduring commercial performance of Camila Cabello‘s sophomore album, ‘Romance.’
While not exactly on the receiving end of the out-of-the-box success of its self-titled forerunner, the project – which bowed at #3 upon its debut – has maintained some level of buoyancy on Billboard charts thanks to streams and the radio airplay of its latest single, ‘My Oh My’ (featuring DaBaby).
Much like that tune took over 3 months to crack the top 20 (as we reported here), its parent album has taken the scenic route to Platinum certification. Nevertheless, it got there this week.

As seen in the video above, Cabello took to Instagram Monday (May 4) to thank her fans – affectionately referred to as #Camilizers – for hoisting her second album to Platinum certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Like her latest hit, ‘My Oh My’ (as we reported here), the LP’s newfound status denotes sales equivalence of 1 million copies.
The report surfaced the same day her breakthrough solo single, ‘Havana,’ crossed the threshold for 9x Platinum – making it 1 million units “sold” shy of reaching Diamond certification.
If it reaches the mark it will only be the 35th song in history to do so.
