J. Cole is taking home more than two dozen new certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) this week.

The organization announced a total of 27 new plaques for Cole, with 21 of them ranging from platinum to multiple-platinum certifications for releases like “She’s Mine, Pt. 1,” 4 Your Eyez Only, “Kevin’s Heart” and The Off-Season. His Revenge of the Dreamers III single “MIDDLE CHILD” was also certified 9x platinum and may very well be Cole’s first ever diamond record — all he needs is one more platinum certification before being awarded the prestigious diamond plaque, which certifies that the cut has sold 10 million units.

Cole is preparing to hit the road with Drake for their joint It’s All a Blur Tour – Big as the What? tour, which is set to kick off in mid-January 2024.

Elsewhere in music, Drake is calling on other artists to rap over his For All the Dogs: Scary Hours Edition beats.
