Seven months after its release, Childish Gambino‘s well-received Awaken, My Love! album has been certified gold.
Last week, as The FADER points out, the album crossed the 500,000-sold mark, joining Because The Internet as his second gold-certified album. Earlier this year, “Redbone” — with a little help from becoming a meme — became third platinum single following “Heartbeat” and “3005.”
Donald Glover recently revealed he’ll soon retire the Childish Gambino persona, saying, “I like it when something’s good and when it comes back there’s a reason to come back, there’s a reason to do that,” when discussing yet another album under the persona.
