RIAA: Justin Timberlake’s ‘Man of the Woods’ & ‘Filthy’ Are Now Both Platinum

Published: Monday 20th Sep 2021 by Rashad

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).

    Yeah sure it did.. just like a certain artist sold 700,000 and they gave them the platinum plaque.. I can’t.. it should make the artist try harder if they want to sell more.

    At least he had one hit off of that album lol

    It just sounded so dated and weird to me! But I really love the “Supplies” vid, everyone should go back and watch it, I see it completely differently in 2021! 😳😳😳

    Proof white American women like men with feminine voices. I detected an early penchant for the K-Pop type on uni campus. Hey, Ash — doubt you’re reading this as you must be with a beer guzzling lumberjack by now. 😂

    Love being shown for the one and only Justin Timberlake for the past two weeks! Jonas Brothers tweeted about that NSYNC “It’s Gonna Be Me” impact days ago. 😎 💯
