They always said Kream rises to the top and – thanks to a recent report from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) – Iggy Azalea is finding out the saying’s still true.
Though Azalea has been unable to reclaim the commercial acclaim afforded to her debut album, ‘The New Classic,’ and its hits ‘Fancy,’ ‘Beg For It,’ and ‘Black Widow,’ the GRAMMY nominee’s subsequent releases have been showered with no shortage of critical acclaim.
Among those lauded tunes is the Tyga-assisted ‘Kream’ – the lead single from her 2018 EP ‘Survive the Summer.’ With its #96 peak on the Hot 100, the song broke a 2-year dry spell for Azalea (who hadn’t touched the tally since 2016’s ‘Team’ peaked at #42).
Its favor among fans seems to have paid off as the RIAA updated its logs to reveal ‘Kream’ has risen to Platinum status, denoting sales of 1 million in the United States. It’s the first time a single of Azalea’s has earned such honor since 2015’s ‘Beg For It.’
Coming as the fifth Platinum-certified single of her career to date, it joins a list of other Iggy favorites that includes ‘Fancy,’ ‘Black Widow,’ ‘Beg,’ and ‘Work.’
