Stormzy is undoubtedly the man of the moment and his winning streak has just been taken to a new level as his 2015 anthem “Shut Up” has just gone platinum and his recent hit “Big For Your Boots” is now silver.
The British Phonographic Industry (BPI) announced the news in a series of tweets. “What a Week @Stormzy1 has had!” the first tweet reads, “‘Big For Your Boots’ has just gone silver!”. Shortly after, the BPI broke the news regarding “Shut Up” earning a platinum certificate. “Not only has ‘Big For Your Boots’ gone silver, but ‘Shut Up’ is now platinum in the UK” reads the second tweet.
The platnium certificate is given to singles which have sold over 600,000 units while silver is given to singles which sell over 200,000 units.
The two new achievements come exactly a week after the South London artist claimed the number one spot in the charts with his debut album Gang Signs & Prayer.
Although GSAP was only released two weeks ago, we can definitely expect the album and various singles from the project to continue to do big numbers as time goes by.
