Brent Faiyaz’s plaque collection from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) continues to grow.

The Grammy-nominated singer has scored nine new awards from the RIAA. Five of Faiyaz’s new certifications are from his 2022 album, Wasteland

“All Mine,” penned and produced by Faiyaz, has been declared double platinum, with two million equivalent units sold. “Jackie Brown” has been upped to platinum, with one million equivalent units sold. 

Additionally, “Loose Change,” “Rolling Stone” and “Price of Fame” are now certified gold, with each selling over 500,000 equivalent units.

A few songs from Faiyaz’s F**k The World project have collected RIAA awards, including:

  • “Clouded,” 3x platinum (3 million equivalent units)
  • “Rehab (Winter in Paris),” 2x platinum (2 million equivalent units)
  • “Been Away,” 1x platinum (1 million equivalent units)

With Faiyaz’s new award for “Clouded,” the song is now his highest-certified song as a lead artist. On Spotify, “Clouded” has garnered over 540 million streams and counting. It’s Faiyaz’s most-streamed song on that platform thus far.

Last but not least is Faiyaz’s 2021 standalone single, “Mercedes,” now gold. 

Faiyaz’s new RIAA awards come after scoring eight certifications last September, including for Wasteland, which was certified platinum. 

Last fall, Faiyaz released Larger Than Life, his first project under his deal with UnitedMasters in partnership with his company, ISO Supremacy. The project includes features from Missy Elliott, Coco Jones, A$AP Rocky, Tommy Richman, and more.
