Elliott Yamin checked in with his Twitter followers (@elliottyamin) on Monday (June 20) after receiving a recognition for album sales for his contribution to the compilation album ‘Now That’s What I Call Music 25’. The UTV Records release includes his song ‘Wait For You’, which was the ‘American Idol’ alum’s most successful single, peaking at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 2007. Yamin writes:
