Tiësto and Dzeko‘s collaboration with Post Malone and Preme, “Jackie Chan,” proved itself to be a particularly pervasive summer anthem, as the star-studded hit single worked its way through playlists and radio airwaves. Although the glow of festival season and its accompanying warmer temperatures have long since faded, the sun-soaked personality of the feel-good number continues to shine through the winter months, as evidenced by the song’s newfound platinum certification status. As per certification standards, the “platinum” title indicates that “Jackie Chan” has been purchased or streamed 1 million times since its arrival in May.

“Jackie Chan” follows a number of previously released platinum productions from Tiësto, including 2014’s “Red Lights” and 2010’s “Feel It In My Bones.” The platinum certification of “Jackie Chan” is as much a credit to Tiësto’s ear for electronic tunes that will resonate — and have consistently resonated — with listeners as it is a watershed moment in Dzeko’s progressing career as a solo producer.

Marshmello and Anne-Marie’s ‘Friends’ goes platinum

Marshmello and Anne-Marie‘s friend-zone anthem, “Friends,” has gone platinum. The platinum plaque recognizes 1 million units sold in the U.S. by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), which are distinguished by single digital sales or 150 streams on platforms like Spotify and Apple Music. Those these numbers are nothing to turn one’s head at, however, it is important to look at other locations where this catchy anthem is consumed. Take YouTube, for example, where the melodic and unflinching track amassed nearly 600 million plays between Marshmello’s playful animated lyric video and the official music video as of Aug. 23. “Friends” peaked on Billboard Hot 100 at No. 11, but it’s clear the core of this song has a continuing resonance that isn’t slowing down. 

Marshmello collaborations have again and again proven to be hits. In a press release announcing the platinum certification, Anne-Marie expressed her feelings about working with the masked master track-maker stating, “I love Marshmello…Working with him was so much fun and I can’t wait to work with him again. Talented, humble, lovely human…..I mean, Marshmello.”

On Aug. 20, with the continued enthusiasm and momentum associated when a track turns anthem, Anne-Marie accepted RIAA’s framed plaque right before performing a sold-out show at the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles. Of course, Marshmello isn’t slowing down either having recently announced a collaboration with Juice WRLD. Who knows what these tastemakers will do next.

Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ went platinum the day it dropped

Drake’s ‘Scorpion’ went platinum the day it droppedDrake Live

Popular consensus is that Drake took the L in his highly publicized beef with Pusha T. In the grand scheme, perhaps he lost that battle, but less than one week after The Boy’s massive fifth studio album, Scorpionit’s becoming increasingly safe to say he’s won the war. That’s because after not only shattering Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon’s single day streaming records, Drizzy also broke the previously standing first week streaming record in a mere 72 hours with over 430 million rinses. The numbers continue to roll in though, and it appears the “Talk Up” rapper’s double-sided album also went platinum in a single day too. According to stats from the RIAA, the 25-track LP release raked in over one million album equivalent units on June 29 — the day it was released.

Drake’s numbers are only bound to keep inflating, with physical copies of Scorpion expected to hit shelves in the coming weeks. In a recent interview, DJ Premier, who contributed to Scorpion on arguably the record’s strongest piece “Sandra’s Rose,” reveals that Drake’s team still has new material in the chamber, including more from Primo himself. Rap beef and viral moments aside, Drake is dominating the charts and the history books at the same time and he could potentially have more music on the way.

Marshmello’s ‘Alone’ reaches platinum status

The public’s love for digestible future bass hits is still going strong, as evidenced by Marshmello‘s latest accomplishment.

His single “Alone,” which was signed by Monstercat and served as his first official release on a major label, has officially reached platinum status — in other words, over 500,000 copies have been sold. Featuring somber, yet euphoric vocals and a simple, a catchy melodic hook, and plenty of bass, “Alone” became a viral hit upon its arrival on digital platforms. The output also cemented Marshmello’s spot among the top tier of EDM producers, after his commercially-inclined take on an exploding genre had been building steady momentum over his SoundCloud.

Additionally, “Alone” is the first platinum record for Monstercat as a whole, making it the label’s biggest release. Marshmello continues to climb in the meantime, earning increasing amounts of fans and airplay. It would hardly be a shock if the producer reached platinum yet again with one of his newer singles — most likely his new Selena Gomez collaboration.
