Jhené Aiko’s Third Album ‘Chilombo’ Goes Platinum


The gold and platinum awards from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) keep coming in for Jhené Aiko

Chilombo, her latest album and one of Rated R&B’s best R&B albums of 2020, has earned Aiko her first platinum certification of 2021. It marks her very first body of work to achieve platinum status. Last November, the Grammy-nominated artist racked up her third gold album certification for Souled Out, her 2014 debut studio album. 

In addition to collecting a platinum plaque for Chilombo, Aiko’s Big Sean-assisted track “Moments,” from 2017’s Trip, is now certified gold. 

Most recently, Aiko scored herself a number-one single on urban radio for “B.S.” featuring H.E.R.  

At the 2021 Grammys, which takes place on Sunday, March 14, Aiko is in the running for three awards: Album of the Year and Best Progressive R&B Album for Chilombo, as well as Best R&B Performance for “Lighting & Thunder” with John Legend.
