YNW Melly scores another accomplishment in his music career.
According to the RIAA, "Mixed Personalities," which is a Kanye West-assisted song Melly dropped at the top of 2019, reached platinum status on Monday (July 9). The track, which belongs to the jailed rapper's We All Shine album, is his second platinum-selling single. His first was "Murder on My Mind," which went platinum back in March. As if "Mixed Personalities" going platinum wasn't enough, Melly also earned another certification for his "Murder on My Mind" and "Virtual (Blue Balenciagas)." The former song was certified two-times platinum back in May, but on July 9 it was certified triple platinum. Meanwhile, "Virtual (Blue Balenciagas)," which is featured on his 2018 album I Am You, has reached gold status.
This news comes as the Florida rapper is sitting behind bars as he awaits his upcoming trial. Melly was charged with double murder for the deaths of his two affiliates YNW Sakchaser and YNW Juvy. If convicted, the state of Florida will pursue the death penalty with the full support of the victims' families. In the meantime, Melly has the support of his fans as well as other MC's like Future, Lil Baby and Lil Durk.
