FADER cover star 21 Savage has been crushing it on all fronts lately, and now he's got a platinum plaque to his name. "X" his and Metro Boomin's Future-assisted cut from Savage Mode has now moved over 1 million equivalent units, says Billboard, who cited reps for the RIAA.


According to Billboard, "X" received a substantial chart boost due to Soundcloud data, which was recently incorporated into Billboard's chart system. Right now, "X" sits at No. 2 on Soundcloud's weekly chart, having accumulated over 2 million spins this week, and more than 48 million overall. "No Heart" sits at No. 3, with over 28 million plays in total so far.
