Panic! At The Disco just can't stop hitting milestones. The latest? Their sixth studio album Pray For The Wicked has been certified Platinum in the US within its first year of release. For those unaware of what exactly that means — it's the equivalent of 1 million units sold. The album's lead single "Say Amen (Saturday Night)" has also gone Platinum.
With this feat in the books, five of P!ATD's six albums have now gone Platinum, with the exception of their third effort Vices & Virtues, which is still at Gold status. In fact, the band's debut A Fever You Can't Sweat Out is 3x Platinum, and their fifth album Death of a Bachelor has gone 2x Platinum.
Brendon Urie and company are also basking in the success of "High Hopes," their most successful single to date. It is the band's most-viewed music video, was certified Platinum, hit No. 1 across three different radio formats, peaked higher than any of the band's other singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and became the longest leading No. 1 single on the Adult Pop Songs radio airplay chart this decade.
It's been one impressive year for P!ATD, and we're not even halfway through 2019. We can't wait to see what they do next.
