Nearly six months later, Frank Ocean‘s phenomenal debut album, Channel Orange, has moved 500,000 copies. That means it’s certified gold, baby, and we get the feeling he’s going to sell a shitload more copies following the Grammy Awards on Feb. 10. Think about it: not too many people are that familiar with him just yet and dude’s up for six awards. He’s performing, too, which is just another boost for Channel Orange. Hopefully it doesn’t take six more months for it to go platinum.
