Childish Gambino’s single “This Is America” has been certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America.
The song has topped the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks after its May 7 debut on “Saturday Night Live.” The track has also enjoyed global success, ranking at No. 1 on Spotify’s global and U.S. charts also hitting No. 1 on iTunes in 45 markets. Additionally, it remains No. 1 on the Overall Streaming Chart for three weeks straight.
The video directed by Hiro Murai has also garnered over 216 million views since its release and is currently No. 1 on YouTube’s U.S. Top Music Videos. The video was watched 85.3 million times in its first week on YouTube, marking the biggest first week debut of any video this year.
Despite its success, the song is not the first single off Gambino’s debut album on Wolf + Rothstein/RCA Records, which is due out later this year.
