Both Bon Iver Albums Certified Gold at the Same Time

Bon Iver‘s debut album, For Emma, Forever Ago, was officially released almost three years ago, and Jagjaguwar has just announced that it has been RIAA-certified Gold. Even more interesting, the most recent album, Bon Iver, Bon Iver, has surpassed 500,000 in sales at the same damn time. Pop a bottle of Bushmills and pull the Lambo up to the cabin for a celebration, Justin. You’ve earned it.

    Hate to make you do research, but something I always wish I could find out is how much artist make from their record sales. I have a feeling someone like Bon Iver could care less about going Gold, but im sure he has to make a living.

    Plus I just read a pretty interesting article on COMPLEX about Chief Keef’s record deal ad how crazy some of the agreements are. I wonder if these things are the norm.
