Fine china is the norm, but for V's platinum birthday, we give the gift of girl power. In our week-long series "Going Platinum" we highlight six standouts form our 20 years of sonic discovery.

"It took me a while to recuperate after [Blood] came out. I felt like I was in a daze and didn't know how to process what was happening. Right now, I'm feeling really excited that my music is doing what I knew it would do: Spark a real, genuine feeling that affects people in a way that goes beyond a trend or momentary whim, but a real genuine feeling. And [that spark] is slowly but surely spreading."
