On the same day it celebrates its first anniversary, Lil Baby’s ‘My Turn’ album secured its third platinum plaque.
Lil Baby’s album ‘My Turn’ may only be a year old, but that hasn’t stopped the acclaimed project from becoming one of the biggest projects in hip hop’s history. At least commercially speaking, with tracks like “Woah,” “Emotionally Scarred,” and “The Bigger Picture” continuing to rack up streams to this day. With March 1st, 2021 marking the album’s first anniversary, Baby’s milestone was made all the more memorable as he scored another notable accomplishment in the process.
As it happens, ‘My Turn’ received its third platinum certification from the RIAA on the exact same day that it turned one. The update comes a few months after the project went double platinum in September; before that, ‘My Turn’ went platinum on May 15th 2020.
Where one used to buy a complete album and have it count toward the total tally, now, a single or standout track can go platinum long before the album from whence it came. On that note, lead single “Woah” was already platinum upon the release of ‘My Turn’, though the album only secured platinum status a few months down the line.
His milestones are impressive, and with the deluxe ‘My Turn’ expected to hit new records, fans are over the moon with the possibilities for this Atlanta native.
