Nearly five years after its release, “Trip” is now certified platinum.
In order to receive such an honorable recognition, one’s project must surpass one million U.S. sales. This is Jhené’s second time earning a prestigious achievement, as her 2020 album Chilombo also went platinum.
Trip was described as “an epic, psychedelic journey beyond the boundaries of R&B.” Throughout its entirety, Jhené talked about falling in and out love, experiencing the death of a loved one, and navigating life despite its hardships.
During an interview with Billboard, when asked what she wanted fans to take away from the project, she said, “…not to feel alone in any of the pain or stress they’re going through. I feel like a lot of people are afraid to talk about those things that make them sad or the things they’re scared of, or the mistakes that they’ve made.”
