A YouTuber has just gone platinum in Australia! Nope, this isn’t a new challenge where they bleach their hair or coat themselves in metal: it’s the certification of reaching a staggeringly high number of music sales.
Precious baby Troye Sivan’s single “WILD” from new album Blue Neighbourhood has sold over 70,000 units in his home country; making the song eligible for platinum status.
The video for “WILD” was released in September as part of a preview EP for the full album, which followed in December. Since its release, Troye has had an Australian tour that sold out in seconds, played on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone.
We’re really excited for Troye’s platinum success, and know this is just the beginning of his global domination!!
Here’s the video for “WILD” again, just in case you feel like celebrating:
