The album has been certified gold with the sales of 500,000 in USA. The singles “Safe + Sound” as well as “Dollaz & Sense” are considered to be some of the best pieces created by Warryn, but to add more, he has won three Grammy Awards, one for the Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance (“Get Up”) and two for the Best Gospel Songs (“God in Me” and “Go Get It”).
