Gold in one week for 'Human'

It's been a remarkable week for BRITs Critics' Choice winner Rag 'n' Bone Man. Not only has his hit single 'Human' been certified Platinum, but his debut album of the same name has gone Gold in just one week, making him the first artist to do so with a debut album since Sam Smith with 'In The Lonely Hour' in June 2014. Rag 'n' Bone Man is in very select company in achieving this feat - only The Rolling Stones and David Bowie managed to go Gold with an album in week of release in 2016.
