It eventually amassed a total of seven non-consecutive weeks at the top of the chart and 24 weeks in the Top 10. It has been certified diamond and 11 times platinum by the RIAA (each disc in the double album counted as a separate unit for certification). As of March 2012, it has sold 5.7 million units in the United States.

Speakerboxxx/The Love Below received widespread acclaim from music critics, who praised the consistency of Big Boi’s Speakerboxxx and the eclectic musical style of André 3000’s The Love Below. It topped The Village Voice‘s Pazz & Jop critics poll, and won Album of the Year and Best Rap Album at the 46th Grammy Awards, while “Hey Ya!” won Best Urban/Alternative Performance.
