[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Breakthrough star Kane Brown just received word that the Recording Industry Association of America is adding not one, but two awards to his tally: Brown’s self-titled debut album and hit single “Heaven” both have earned official Platinum certification for reaching the one million unit threshold of total physical sales, downloads and on-demand audio and/or video stream equivalents.
On the heels of achieving a 10th week at #1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart and returning to the Top 20 of the all-genre Billboard 200 chart today, Brown’s debut becomes the sole country album to earn RIAA Platinum certification since its release in December 2016. 2018’s most-streamed country release has topped Billboard’s album consumption chart for 8 out of 11 weeks year-to-date. For the period since its debut, Kane Brown has held the #1 position for the most weeks of any country album and is available HERE.
“Heaven” is Brown’s third track to achieve Platinum or Multi-Platinum certification. “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina became Double-Platinum in January and “Used to Love You Sober” became Platinum in February. The last single to achieve Platinum-certification at quicker pace than “Heaven” was Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road” in June 2017.

That same week, the singer-songwriter became the first-ever artist to top all 5 Billboard Country Charts with his breakthrough #1 Top Country Album; #1 debuting Country Digital Song, “Heaven”; and #1 Country Airplay, Hot Country Song and Country Streaming Song, the Double-Platinum “What Ifs” featuring Lauren Alaina.
