John Legend and Gary Clark Jr. have gained a new certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Their 2020 collaboration, â€œWild,â€ is now certified gold with over 500,000 equivalent units sold.
â€œWildâ€ appears on Legendâ€™s latest album, Bigger Love, which was among Rated R&Bâ€™s 30 Best R&B Albums of 2020. â€œWith Bigger Love, Legend manifests the kind of passion for life and loved ones that stand the test of time,â€ wrote Anders Hare of Rated R&B.
This is Clarkâ€™s first RIAA award. Earlier this year, Legend received a gold certification for â€œConversations in the Dark,â€ which also appears on Bigger Love.
In 2020, Legend made history with his diamond certification for his 2014 smash hit â€œAll of Me,â€ joining less than 40 other songs to achieve this feat at the time. He also gained new platinum certifications for his other work, including his album Get Lifted (2x multi-platinum), â€œLove Me Nowâ€ and â€œOrdinary People.â€
