Kanye West’s Yeezus goes platinum

Maybe he was right to rant about being given only two Grammy nominations – Kanye West’s sixth album goes platinum.

Kanye West’s sixth studio album, Yeezus, was officially certified as a platinum album by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The 10-track album received mixed reviews but fans were clearly not interested in those – the album sold more than one million copies after its release in June last year.

“This album is moments that I haven’t done before, like just my voice and drums. What people call a rant — but put it next to just a drumbeat, and it cuts to the level of, like, Run-D.M.C. or KRS-One,” Kanye told the New York Times.

His private life may be all over the place right now but Mr West has started his 2014 music career on cloud nine.
