Beyoncé and JAY Z have yet another award to add to their impressive collection, with their latest effort, “APES***” being certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.

The Pharrell co-produced track, which serves as the lead single off The Carters joint album, Everything Is Love, moved over one million units. This accolade follows the couple earning a Grammy for Best Urban Contemporary Album for the project at this year’s ceremony. The album also went gold less than a month prior to the Grammys.

In others Carters news, the duo is competing in three categories at the 2019 BET Awards, including Best Group, Video of the Year, for “APES***”, and Album of the Year, for Everything Is Love. Beyoncé, who voices Nala in this summer’s the forthcoming Disney live-action remake of Lion King, also scored a solo nomination for Best Female R&B/Pop Artist.

Beyoncé’s recharged version of Maze and Frankie Beverly’s “Before I Let Go” recently became her first top-10 R&B single in five years on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs chart.
