Over a year after its debut, Jazmine Sullivan‘s comeback EP – ‘Heaux Tales’ – continues to write new chapters in its success narrative.
Her highest-peaking project on the Billboard 200 to date, the enduring wins of ‘Heaux’ can be attributed in no small part to its critically acclaimed single ‘Pick Up Your Feelings’ – which gave the R&B diva her highest-charting hit on the Hot 100 since 2010.
Now, according to news from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), ‘Pick Up’ is picking up even more accolades thanks to ongoing attention from streaming and digital download outlets.
Just eight months after announcing ‘Feelings’ had become the first certified hit of her nearly 15-year-long career, the RIAA took to press Wednesday (January 19) to confirm the tune’s certification status had elevated to Platinum. This means it’s sold the equivalence of 1 million units in the United States.
Sullivan took to Instagram to not only trumpet the news, but also send her fans into a frenzy with the tease of a ‘special announcement’ due Monday (January 24).

And with a North American tour kicking off on February 14 (as we reported here), our best guess tells us this is only the beginning of the tune’s journey at the RIAA.
