Just days after announcing she owns her master recordings, singer-songwriter Ashanti’s signature song ‘Foolish’ serves notice of how wise it was to invest in herself.
Nearly 20 years after the tune’s debut and storm of the Billboard Hot 100 (topping the tally for a whopping 10 weeks), it’s still getting love on digital and streaming outlets – a continued success that has spelled for even greater attention at the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
See how inside:
On Ashanti’s birthday (October 13), the RIAA announced ‘Foolish’ had crossed its threshold for double Platinum status – meaning it’s sold the equivalence of 2 million copies in the United States to date.
As of time reported, it is the only of her greatest hits to reach such certification plateau. It joins her 2004 Gold-certified hit, ‘Only U,’ as the only two singles of her career to be certified by the organization.
