As Justin Timberlake puts the final touches on his hotly-anticipated, yet-titled sixth solo studio album (as we reported here), his loyal fans are still clinging to his past hits to tide themselves over.
Evidence of this was served recently when the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) took to press to announce the GRAMMY winner’s 2018 critically polarizing album, ‘Man of the Woods,’ recently cleared the threshold for Platinum certification.
More about its ongoing success inside:
On September 9, the RIAA confirmed ‘Woods’ had become Timberlake’s latest body of work to boast a Platinum plaque – meaning it’s sold the equivalent of 1 million units in the United States.
Although his slowest LP to reach said status, the triumph keeps the singer-songwriter’s streak intact as all of his solo projects are certified Platinum or higher in the territory.
What’s more, two of the album’s singles – ‘Filthy’ and ‘Say Something’ – also received certification upgrades.
While the former now sits at Platinum status like its parent project, the Chris Stapleton-assisted latter is now at 3x Platinum. Listed among the former NSYNC frontman’s most popular songs, only ‘Can’t Stop the Feeling’ (4x Platinum) and ‘Sexy Back’ (3x Platinum) have been certified as high or higher in his discography (as of time reported).
