On Sept. 19, Keys received several platinum certifications for songs dating back to her debut album, Songs In A Minor, including her breakout 2001 single, “Fallin,” which yielded the New York native three Grammy Awards. Additional hits that received new multi-platinum certifications include “No One,” “Girl On Fire,” “If I Ain’t Got You,” “My Boo,” and “Un-Thinkable (I’m Ready).”
Songs that reached platinum certification include “You Don’t Know My Name” and “Underdog,” while “Doesn’t Mean Anything” earned a gold plaque.
In reaction to the news, Keys hopped on Twitter and posted a congratulatory tweet to her “Girl On Fire” collaborator Nicki Minaj, tagging the Queens native in the post.
Prior to this recent uptick in RIAA certifications for Keys, “City of Gods,” her collaboration with Fivio Foreign and Kanye West, attained gold status, adding yet another accolade to an already decorated career. She has also shown no signs of slowing down anytime soon, as the veteran songstress released Keys II, the deluxe edition of her eighth studio album Keys, in August. The double-disc effort included additional features from Lil Wayne, Swae Lee, Khalid, Brent Faiyaz, Lucky Daye.
