Lecrae Gets First Platinum Record with ‘I’ll Find You’ Featuring Tori Kelly
Lecrae got his first platinum record with his smash single “I’ll Find You” featuring singer Tori Kelly. While the music video 62 million streams on YouTube and millions of streams on other platforms, stream numbers are weighted differently than sales.
Traditional Gold, Platinum, and Diamond certifications meant sales with the numbers being 500K, one million, and 10 million respectively. But now, since streaming is king, those sales are not happening like they once were so streaming is factored in at a different rate. This is how Lecrae has over 100 million plays on the song but just now hit Platinum certification.
