All it took was a month and Beyonce’s new album “4” has now been certified platinum. This is because the album has hit the one million units shipped mark. I would just like to point out that “shipped” doesn’t mean that the albums are “sold”. Some people are calling the R&B singer’s latest album a flop but Beyonce herself said that she wasn’t really aiming to break records with “4”. She said “I really wanted to get the critical acclaim. I feel like the longer I do this—I’ve been doing it for 15 years now—No. 1s are amazing, but to see some of the comments that the Rolling Stone and The New York Times and all of these credible, amazing, really critical magazines and papers [are saying] has really made me my proudest.”
