That did not take too long. Beyoncé can now add another platinum plaque to her wall as her fourth album, 4 has shipped more than one million units in the U.S. Although Beyoncé is one of the greatest pop artists of our time, this quick rise to platinum status comes as a surprise since the album has been lacking some serious chart assistance as its lead single “Run the World (Girls)” failed to make an impact on the charts. 4 also marks her fourth solo album to go platinum following I Am… Sasha Fierce, B’Day, and her debut Dangerously in Love.

Bey, however, made sure to stress out that her biggest focus for the record was critical acclaim and not commercial success. As told to Access Hollywood:

“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 Stones and The New York Times and all of these credible, amazing, really critical magazines and papers [are saying] has really made me my proudest.”
