KP4 has been released 3 years and a half ago, yet the album isn't even certified gold in the US. Do you think it could reach platinum before its 4th anniversary?

No, it struggles to get streams on Spotify. Even Smile will surpass it in a few months.

Wait, actually? :skull: 

OT: Hopefully it will someday. I don't think before its 4th anniversary though.

I read somewhere that Witness has only 1.3 B streams while Smile has almost 2 B streams.

Only OTTB has around 800 M streams.

Witness

311k pure sales

Chained To The Rhythm - 2x Platinum

Bon Appétit - Gold

Swish Swish - Platinum


It’s a terrible album and it deserves nothing but it’s clearly eligible for Platinum (albeit thanks to ticket redemption bundles).

“Witness” has been Platinum-eligible for over a year.

That user clearly meant “1B”. 
 

“Smile” currently has ~900M streams and should hit 1B by late Q3/early Q4 this year.

 

It will definitely have outstreamed “Witness” by, at least, Q1 2022.

I can't wait to create a similar thread concept about "Chromatica" in 2023 :fan:

It's clearly already eligible. Thank you for your concern, though!

I wonder why Capitol hasn’t certified it if it’s eligible? :huh:

 

No shade, just I know Capitol is a bit of a crummy label, and I thought getting certs on time was one of the few things they were good at :shakeno:

There's no backfire. Witness is not certified platinum in the US, that's a fact. Not even gold. :michael:

But it's not certified platinum. And eligible according to which source?

311k pure +~ 280k +~55k+ ~150k= 796k SPS......where is the rest coming from? and I was generous with those estimates for CTTR and SS....did the rest of the songs sell 2 mil in pure and streams.....i doubt

Whitness is not eligible it needs at least another 200k in SPS to reach 1mil units and I was generous with the estimates

Nah, with shipments it's eligible. It's not like RIAA does any quality control over their certification numbers anyway, so many records get certified despite not having reached the thresholds (see Baby and Bad Romance in 2015).

If anything, you're low with those estimates. Haven't you seen the YouTube stats? According to RIAA, 150 million views from the US equal to 100k album units. The Witness era has long crossed 3 billion YouTube views. I wish Katy had a fragile ego like certain other girls who always update their certifications just to settle this down :dies:

RIAA certifies shipments, and Witness was notoriously overshipped when it came out.

So with ticket bundles, fake youtube # and shipments she will finally reach 1 mil units in 2-3 years ?
