Having last month released his latest single off the back of a slew of big-name collaborations, 2017 is already shaping up to be a big year for Khalid. Now, in more good news for the 19-year-old artist, his debut full-length effort has officially reached certified platinum status.

Taking to Instagram, the Georgia-born singer-songwriter made a subtle nod to J. Cole, letting his fans know that American Teen had reached the prestigious 1,000,000 mark with “no features.” Khalid also took the opportunity to say ”Thank you guys so much for EVERYTHING!” to his followers and comment on how the album’s release had changed his life.
