While not yet listed on the official RIAA website, news has emerged that James Bay’s “Let It Go” has earned a platinum certification in the United States.

Label Republic Records announced the news this week.

The platinum certification confirms a US unit total of at least 1 million. Under the terms of the digital singles program, one unit is equal to 1 paid download or 150 streams.

Showcased during Bay and Tori Kelly’s show-stealing Grammy awards duet, “Let It Go” has performed well on the US charts. It is currently inside the Top 5 at hot adult contemporary and up to #35 on the Billboard Hot 100.

“Let It Go” is one of two RIAA-certified James Bay singles. “Hold Back The River,” the other, is officially gold (500,000 units).
