Kanye West’s ‘All of the Lights’ Goes Platinum
Kanye West is doing pretty well for himself. Over the weekend, he had a very public make out session with an unidentified model during a stop in Cannes, France, and now, his latest single 'All of the Lights' has been certified platinum. The fourth single off Ye's platinum-plus album, 'My Dark Twisted Fantasy,' has sold over one million digital copies.
The single which was released in January continues to stay afloat on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. As of two weeks ago 'All of the Lights' reached No. 18 on the charts falling, only slightly, to No. 23 this week.
Despite receiving favorable reviews, once West dropped the video for the track, he ran into a little trouble. Not long after its release, the Chicago MC was accused of stealing the video concept from French filmmaker Gasper Noe. The bright neon-lights in the video, directed by Hype Williams, led an epilepsy group to fire off a letter to both YouTube and West claiming that it may cause seizures. A disclaimer has since been added to the music video.
Next up, Kanye will headline Lollapalooza in Chicago's Grant Park this August. He's been working on a joint-album, titled 'Watch the Throne,' with Jay-Z, which is rumored to be finished.
