Led by the singles “Pretty Wings” and “Bad Habits,” Maxwell’s album was certified Platinum by the RIAA earlier this month thanks to sales in excess of 1 million copies.
His first album in over three years, “Blacksummers’night” arrived in stores July of 2009, quickly shooting to no.1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart and R&B/Hip Hop Albums chart.
Packed with nine tracks, the album is also the first of a trilogy, with its follow due later this year.
As previously reported, Maxwell is nominated for six Grammy Awards. He joins Beyonce, Anthony Hamilton, Pleasure P and more as nominees set to descend upon Los Angeles Sunday. – Singer’s Room
