RIAA: ‘Could’ve Been’ Becomes H.E.R.’s Third Multi-Platinum Hit

Published: Wednesday 28th Jul 2021 by Rashad

Over a month after its release, H.E.R.’s critically acclaimed debut album – ‘Back of My Mind’ (click here to stream) – is still at the front of the line on R&B charts as it’s found at #5 on this week’s edition of the tally.

While fans continue to get acquainted with the GRAMMY and OSCAR winner’s inaugural studio effort, however, they’re still finding time to spin gems found aboard its predecessors – a feat, per the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), evidenced by the ongoing successes of songs like ‘U,’ ‘Comfortable,’ ‘Could’ve Been,’ and more.

See what we mean inside:

Taking to press Friday (July 23), the RIAA revealed certification updates to a number of gems found aboard H.E.R.’s prized discography.

See the full list below:

2x Platinum (indicative of 2 million units sold)

  • ‘Could’ve Been’ (Single)

Gold (indicative of 500,000 units sold)

  • ‘U’ (Single)
  • ‘Comfortable’ (Single)
  • ‘I Used to Know H.E.R.’ (EP)

Of particular note, the 2018-released ‘Been’ – which features rapper-singer Bryson Tiller – comes as the third multiPlatinum hit of H.E.R.’s career.

Having peaked as high as #2 on the R&B charts (#76 on the Hot 100) at the height of its popularity, the GRAMMY-nominated song follows the success of H.E.R. hits ‘Best Part’ (4x Platinum) and ‘Slide’ (2x Platinum).

    Never heard this song either. Flop.

    How is she getting all of these certs but the songs aren’t charting anywhere? The only believable cert would be “Damage”. That’s her only song that gets radio play.

      Could’ve Been received airplay. Best Part received airplay & her duet with Skip Marley received airplay. Many of her singles have received a decent amount of airplay on Urban radio. She simply haven’t crossed over.
