Halsey becomes first platinum-certified artist of 2020 with ‘Manic’
Halsey dropped her third full-length album Manic at the beginning of the year and now it's become the first record of 2020 receiving platinum certification.
According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), the album is the first earning the status in 2020 as of today (February 26).
Just a few days after releasing the album, she also offered fans a special version of it to purchase. She ended up releasing the record with its alternate album art and will be signed by Halsey but under her birth name Ashley.
The record has been very well-received by fans and prior to the album's release saw her drop “Finally // beautiful stranger,” “Clementine,” “Graveyard,” “Without Me,” “SUGA’s Interlude,” and "You Should Be Sad."
Halsey was also seen working with Bring Me The Horizon, who recently released a collaboration with her on their Music To Listen To EP. They also released "Experiment On Me" together for the Birds Of Prey soundtrack.
The musician also announced a North American tour for the summer along with CHVRCHES, Omar Apollo, blackbear and PVRIS. This comes after she had previously announced the non-American dates for her tour.
Now, she's reaping the rewards of her hard work on the album and getting the first platinum certification of the new decade.
