Announcing the milestone on his socials, Sam writes, “Can’t believe I’m about to say this. Found out today I have officially sold over 20 million albums! What the f***k! Unbelievable news. Thank you to all my beautiful fans for your continuous support and love.”
Sam first broke through as a guest vocalist on the 2012 single “Latch,” by Disclosure. His debut album, In the Lonely Hour, came out in 2014 and has sold just under 16 million copies globally. His latest album, 2017’s The Thrill of It All, has sold over four million copies worldwide to date.
On top of his stellar record sales, Sam’s also scored four Grammy Awards, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, three Billboard Awards, an American Music Award and a BET Award.
This Friday, Sam kicks off a round of dates in New Zealand and Australia, wrapping up November 20. In 2019, he’ll do five shows in South Africa.
