Rising artist Bryson Tiller remains on a winning streak thanks to his debut album T R A P S O U L. The 14-track project made Tiller a name to be reckoned with, and even landed him a couple of sold-out shows at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. Although those two nights were memories that he’ll always live with, today also uncovered a moment for the history books.
The aforementioned album recently went Platinum after going Gold a month ago. In his Instagram post, the Louisville artist shared that RIAA surprised him with the news after one of his Big Apple concerts last week, and shared the story with his fans.
“Right after the show they surprised me and told me that T R A P S O U L is officially a Platinum Album.” he said. “Words cannot explain how I feel. Thank you if you bought this, you changed my life.”

Right after the show they surprised me and told me that T R A P S O U L is officially a Platinum Album. words cannot explain how i feel. thank you if you bought this, you changed my life.
