Leon Bridges has earned his second platinum award from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). His track, â€œBeyond,â€ from 2018â€™s Good Thing, is now certified platinum, honoring more than one million digital sales.
Since its release, the Nate Mercereau and Ricky Reed-produced song has amassed over 214 million plays on Spotify.
â€œBeyondâ€ is the second success from Bridgesâ€™ sophomore album, with his â€œBet Ainâ€™t Worth the Handâ€ winning a Grammy in the category of Best Traditional R&B Performance in 2019.
Previous RIAA awards this year include a platinum honor for â€œRiverâ€ and a gold plaque for his debut album Coming Home.
In late July, Bridges released his third album Gold-Diggers Sound featuring appearances from Robert Glasper, Terrace Martin, and Ink.
He spoke to Rated R&B about the LP, detailing his recording experience at Gold-Diggers in East Hollywood, how Sade and his mother inspired the track â€œMagnolias,â€ and more.
Bridges also appeared on the Space Jam: A New Legacy soundtrack.
