Big Sean’s “I Decided” Goes Platinum
Big Sean’s career has been decorated with numerous plaques and awards declaring him one of Hip Hop’s premier artists. His latest album, I Decided, just went platinum and he has the plaque to prove it.
The Detroit native celebrated the accomplishment Wednesday (October 25) with an Instagram photo of himself crouching next to the enormous plaque.
“For the creatives, the dreamers I made this album for, I Decided is now certified PLATINUM,” the caption read. “The fans got me 4eva. Thank you #DonLife GOOD Music/DEF JAM #BacktoBackPlatinumAlbums #IDecided yeeeeeeee.”
Sean’s latest win isn’t really that surprising. Three of the project’s records have become enormous successes on their own. “Bounce Back” is certified three-times platinum, while “Move” has gone platinum. “Favors” featuring Detroit legend Eminem has also been certified gold.
I Decided was Sean’s second #1 debut on the Billboard 200 upon its release ending the week of February 9. It moved over 151,000 equivalent album units with 65,000 coming from physical album sales. He previously led the chart with 2015’s Dark Sky Paradise, which moved 173,000 units, 139,000 of which were traditional album sales.
