RIAA uses YouTube, Spotify etc to certify albums, also TEA(Track equilevant). Streaming numbers are only growing. :D
Pure sales may have stalled but the singles on spotify are growing, Swish Swish is close to 200m streams there, CTTR going to 350m, It may take sometime, but it will become platinum at some point. It is up to Capitol, they usually certify their albums 1 year after release. Given that Witness has 3 billion streams on YouTube,Spotify,Apple Music, a big bunch of them come from USA. 8-)

How is it going to sell 450k more? Do you think being a judge on American Idol can make it sell 450k this year? Imo, unless there’s a re-edition and she has a hit from it, it’s not going to happen.
Oh. I thought 550k were without pre-release.
If she has 297,000 pure sales then only 253,000 came from SPS? Yeah, not happening then..
You got me feeling hella good, so let's just keep on dancin...

No. SPS numbers since release week was 399k in 2017 YEC. So probably around 420k by now. Total with pre-release tracks TEA and SEA was 530k according to Hits YEC. So around 550k by now.

Bundles. The album is not on top 500 iTunes. I doubt these are physical. So, by now it has crossed 300,000 pure units.

Witness was #85 on French YEC. And the #86 sold ~65k.
This week on French Albums Chart :

183 (169) 37 Witness

So the album's total must be around 70k. If she keeps selling like this she might go platinum after the tour

Excellent. What about Australia ? Platinum is also possible there right? I think ARIA counts streams.
