Giveon may have lost out on his first Best R&B Album GRAMMY win at Sunday’s ceremony (March 14), but the nomination alone speaks volumes about the noise the newcomer’s been making over the last few months.
But while he didn’t go home with a golden gramophone, he’s being comforted by news he’s receiving other gold in its place.
See what we mean inside:
With each passing week buzz only seems to amplify around his breakthrough single, ‘Heartbreak Anniversary.’ Already his highest charting Hot 100 entry to date, the song – which hopped to #52 on this week’s updated chart – looks poised to become his first top 40 hit.
Ahead of that career first, he’s achieved another impressive feat: a Gold plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
On March 15, the organization updated its logs to reveal ‘Anniversary’ could celebrate passing the 500,000 sold milestone – an achievement rewarded with the receipt of a Gold certification. The win comes as his second RIAA award and follows the similar success of his single, ‘Like I Want You.’
Both songs are found on his recently released compilation album, ‘When It’s All Said & Done…Take Time.’ Click here to stream it.
