The unstoppable Conchita Wurst, winner of Eurovision’s 2014 Song Contest, has gone platinum with her self-titled album, Conchita.
The Vienna-born drag diva’s new album quickly shot to Number One in her home country of Austria, gaining Top 1o traction in twelve countries and reaching the Top 30 in 15 others.
“We are very pleased with Conchita and congratulate for this wonderful success,” said Dietmar Lienbacher of Sony Music. “To achieve a Platinum Award in such a short time can only work with remarkable artists and personalities.”
Conchita took to Twitter after the announcement, which took her by surprise during a Eurovision 2015 press conference, to thank her fans.
“Really? Platinum? … that’s more or less what I thought at this moment. Thank you”
