Upon hearing the news -- on her 27th birthday, no less -- the affable singer gushed on Twitter about nabbing another plaque stemming from her freshman effort, CTRL. "YO YALL TOOK A SONG THT WASNT A F**KING SINGLE AND MADE IT PLATINUM!!!??AHH I LOVE U MORE THAN CHEESE!THANK U 4 THE BEST BDAY GIFT EVER," she wrote. 

Since the release of CTRL, SZA's debut effort has garnered acclaim and also a bevy of accolades, as well. Last month, she received a gold plaque for CTRL, in addition to a platinum one for her Travis Scott-assisted single "Love Galore."

"Dis feel like really big jewelry," she wrote on Instagram last month in reference to her newly-earned plaques. "THANK U FOR CHANGING MY LIFE IN WAYS I NEVER IMAGINED! Thank each of you for connecting w this album and making me feel less lonely..less inadequate. Thank u for building this family with me. Thank u for a relationship I couldn't buy or explain... Thanks for giving this raggedy Ann (something) to smile about. I LOVE YOU #plaqueduhshawty #CTRL #TDE."
