Eminem's new album has already achieved platinum status, while J. Cole's single hits gold.
On a related note, J. Cole's "Crooked Smile" single went gold, selling 500,000 copies. Cole previously said Macklemore's "Thrift Shop" gave him hope that "Crooked Smile" could be a similarly huge single-- aka played on the radio 24/7 and 5x platinum. Perhaps he's on his way there.
Congrats to both Marshall and Jermaine!
