2017 XXL Freshman Playboi Carti is now a platinum-selling artist. On Tuesday (Aug. 1), Pierre Bourne, who produced Carti’s “Magnolia” and a good deal of his debut project, uploaded an Instagram post announcing the track had officially earned platinum status. A rep from Universal Music Groups confirms the news to XXL.
Bourne’s Instagram post includes a video of Carti laughing and smiling uncontrollably as he celebrates his accomplishment. Bourne’s caption for the vid references Kid Cudi’s hit, “Pursuit of Happiness” to make a point about having a shiny platinum plaque instead of a gold one. Word.
