A year and a few months removed from its release, the collaborative Skrillex and Diplo album Skrillex and Diplo Present Jack Ü continues to find success. The album produced chart-blazing singles “Take Ü There” with Kiesza and “Where Are Ü Now” with Justin Bieber, and has lead the duo to play huge festivals like Coachella, the South American Lollapalooza spin-offs in Brazil and Chile and HARD Summer.
This week, news got out that the Jack Ü album sold over 500,000 copies, leading the RIAA to certify the album as a gold album. Not many electronic music albums have earned the gold certification, and it stands as a huge achievement in an era where streaming music makes it more difficult for artists to build up to gold and platinum certification. Given that “Where Are Ü Now” earned a triple platinum certification and “Take Ü There” did well on the UK Dance charts, it’s no surprise the duo’s debut album went on to sell as many copies as it did.
