In a remarkable achievement, Twista’s timeless track, “Slow Jamz,” has reached platinum certification, marking a significant milestone just days after its 20th anniversary.
The RIAA officially granted the platinum certification on Thursday, January 25th, recognizing the enduring popularity and impact of the song.
Originally released on November 10, 2003, “Slow Jamz” features collaborations with Kanye West and Jamie Foxx. The track swiftly climbed to the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, becoming the first No. 1 hit for Twista, Foxx, and West.
The certification comes as a well-deserved acknowledgment of the song’s enduring appeal and cultural significance.
The recognition of “Slow Jamz” through platinum certification adds to its list of accolades, including a Grammy nomination in 2005 for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration.
Although it faced tough competition and lost to “Numb/Encore” by Linkin Park featuring JAY-Z, the nomination underscores the song’s lasting impact on the music industry.
Twista continues to celebrate a legacy of success with these recent certifications, solidifying his place in the annals of hip-hop history. The platinum status of “Slow Jamz” serves as a testament to the enduring quality of the music and its continued resonance with audiences even two decades after its initial release.
