Kanye West Becomes The First Artist To Have An Album Go Platinum Entirely From Streaming

Kanye West's The Life of Pablo has just made streaming history.

Kanye's LP was released back in February of 2016 and has been streamed more than 3 billion times worldwide. 1.5 billion streams have been in the United States alone. With the 3 billion streams, The Life of Pablo becomes the first album to be RIAA-Certified platinum from streaming alone.

Kanye West continues to make history on streaming music websites such as Apple Music, Tidal and Spotify as his album sales only accounted for a fraction of his total units sold/streamed.

This new record is a true testament to how the world is changing and consuming music in every day circumstances.
