John Travolta has released a new snap on Instagram to celebrate his record going platinum - and he looks incredible!
The 65-year-old star's soundtrack for the film Saturday Night Fever has gone platinum with 45 million units sold worldwide.
John Travolta posted an image of himself on his personal instagram holding the prestigious award, looking relaxed in bare feet, sporting a beard and newly-shaved head.
Standing in his iconic Saturday Night Fever pose, the star is celebrating a 16 million certified Platinum U.S. RIAA Award for the worldwide success of the film's 1977 soundtrack.
It remains the second best-selling film soundtrack on record, with The Bodyguard's 1992 soundtrack just beating it to the top spot with over 45 million units sold.
Earlier this year John revealed that the decision to shave his head was made "on a whim" and that he's keeping his new bald look as it "feels great."
He told People.com: “Listen, my new look came on a whim. It was a New Year’s Eve idea. Because everyone liked it so much, I decided to keep it for a while. So, we’ll see.”
Saturday Night Fever isn't the only soundtrack to bring John Travolta success.
John starred in Grease in 1978 which became the second best-selling album of the year in the United States - behind Saturday Night Fever - going on to sell over 38 million copies worldwide.
