(Los Angeles, CA – May 17, 2020) Shining as brightly as ever, DJ Khaled picks up a platinum certification from the RIAA for his blockbuster twelfth full-length album, Father of Asahd. At twelve months to the date, it impressively moved over 1 million units in combined U.S. sales and streams. Additionally, he emerges as “The only hip-hop artist to achieve three back-to-back platinum albums in the past four years.”
In an intimate conversation with DJ Khaled, Mitch Glazier, Chairman and CEO of the RIAA said, “Congratulations to DJ Khaled and his fans! Khaled is the only hip-hop artist to earn three back to back RIAA certified Platinum albums in the past four years – an amazing feat establishing him as a modern day hip-hop legend. Here’s to more great music ahead!”

It stands out as one of his biggest offerings to date. With around 2 billon total streams, the album boasts the double-platinum “No Brainer” [feat. Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, & Quavo], platinum “Wish Wish” [feat. Cardi B & 21 Savage], and trio of gold hits: “You Stay” [feat. Meek Mill, J Balvin, Lil Baby, & Jeremih] (gold), “Just Us” [feat. SZA] (gold), and “Higher” [feat. Nipsey Hussle & John Legend] (gold). The latter garnered the 2020 GRAMMY® Award for “Best Rap/Sung Performance,” marking Khaled’s first win. Additionally, he took the stage with Legend, YG, Meek Mill, Roddy Ricch, and Kirk Franklin for a tearful and triumphant tribute to Nipsey on the GRAMMY® stage.
This year, he also made big moves to the big screen. Not only did he put together the powerhouse package for the Bad Boys For Life Original Motion Picture Soundtrack as We The Best Music Group’s first soundtrack album, but he also appeared in the film—which emerged as one of the year’s biggest box office successes.
As always, the multiplatinum artist, music industry visionary, innovative influencer, mogul, and mega-producer does not stop.
Right now, he’s cooking up a whole lot of heat for the summer. He’s ready to make history again, kicking it off with another Summer anthem!
more music and surprises coming very soon.
