Kanye West’s ‘Ye’ Album and “I Love It” With Lil Pump Go Gold
Kanye West has another one—or two, to be exact. Recently, the Recording Institution of America had given Kanye's 'Ye album a gold certification. In addition to that, his Lil Pump collaboration, "I Love It," has also gone gold.
Ye, a project which has thus far proven to be one of Kanye's more polarizing efforts, earned its gold certification on Sept. 21. Released in June, the svelte, seven-track project included features from 070 Shake, PartyNextDoor, Valee and more. Although it was met with mixed critical reviews, it's still a Kanye album, so, its gold certification isn't surprising.
"I Love It," a track which Yeezy premiered at the 2018 PornHub Awards last month, was certified gold a couple weeks later on Oct. 4. With its Roblox-inspired visuals and a catchy hook from Pump, “I Love It” was always bound to be a success. The visual for the track has already been viewed over 244 million times, so we wouldn’t be surprised to see the song get another plaque in the very near future.
With his new plaques in hand, Kanye is showing no signs of slowing down. His Yandhi album is set to drop on Nov. 23—aka, Black Friday.
On the other hand, there's Pump, who dropped off his Lil Uzi Vert-assisted single, "Multi Millionaire," a little over a week ago. The song is believed to be a track from his Harverd Dropout album, which after being delayed last month doesn't have a release date.
