Rotimi is a first-time certification holder. The singer/actor has earned a gold plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for his Wale-featured track â€œIn My Bed.â€
Regarding the certification news, Rotimi wrote on Instagram, â€œIâ€™m just a first generation Nigerian kid from Jersey. Donâ€™t EVER let anyone tell you that thereâ€™s a box, a CEILING or LIMIT to what you can do, or who you can be. Nothing comes easy no shortcuts no delay. Hard work.â€
Billed as a single from his 2019 EP The Beauty of Becoming, the Harmony Samuels-produced song received animated video treatment amid the pandemic. He followed with an official video, which has been viewed over 33 million times on YouTube.
The fan-favorite, recognized on Spotify as Rotimiâ€™s most popular song to date, has garnered more than 75.4 million streams on the streaming platform.
Back in June, Rotimi released a pair of tracks: â€œWhat to Doâ€ and â€œDecide.â€ He hopped on rising artist Preciousâ€™ new song â€œHey Boyâ€ in April. He closed out last year with â€œLove Somebody,â€ a beautiful new song produced by The Bizness. It arrived with a supporting video.
