21 Savage‘s debut studio album, Issa Album, has been certified gold by the by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), reflecting 500,000 equivalent album units earned in the U.S. It’s the rapper’s first gold-certified album.

Issa Album has spawned its biggest hit so far with “Bank Account,” which peaked at No. 12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and went platinum back in September. Savage has previously earned platinum plaques for his tracks No Heart and “X” featuring Metro Boomin and Future.
Adding on to his list of accomplishments, Savage also notched his first No. 1 single for his Post Malone collaboration “rockstar.” The single dethroned Cardi B‘s “Bodak Yellow” and has settled in at the No. 1 spot for two consecutive weeks.
The “Bank Account” rapper is heading on his headlining tour this November with special guest YoungBoy Never Broke Again. The 22-city jaunt will begin on Nov. 16 in Austin, Texas, and will make stops in New Orleans, Orlando and Los Angeles before wrapping up in Mobile, Alabama, at the end of December.
