Tyler’s “Igor” goes platinum
It looks like Tyler the Creator can’t be stopped. The artist’s fifth studio album, Igor, which was released in 2019, is now a certified platinum album by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The album, which has sold over 1,000,000 copies, continues to make Tyler, the creator, one of the most influential artists of this generation.
Last year, the artist received her very first Grammy for Igor in the Best Rap Album category. To date, the rapper has been nominated for a total of three Grammy Awards. Igor‘S platinum certification follows the recent release of her sixth studio album, Call me if you get lost, which debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 Albums chart after its release last June. Since then, the eclectic rapper has given a number of surprise shows in support of the album in addition to his last set at Lollapalooza.
Today, Tyler the Creator announced the 2022 tour dates for Call me if you get lost. The 34-show tour, which includes Kali Uchis, Vince Staples and Teezo Touchdown, is slated to start in February and end in April. Tickets go on sale Friday August 5th.
