    …..but how? I swear, the music industry is a joke now. Nobody can calculate and confirm the streams = gold. We just have to take their word for it? This…is tragic. At this point, Ciara could post that “Basic Instinct” is 3x Platinum, and honestly, none of us would be able to prove otherwise. MESS!

      Who cares?!
      She is gold and the public can care less. Only those who crave stan wars give a woot. It is written in stone so cry me a river.

    What made this album gold? The sales haven’t been great. Neither have the streams. Streaming has diluted album sales/certifications far too much.
