Kane Brown just received several new song certifications from the RIAA; two were of the multi-platinum variety.

The award confirms 3 million in US units; each unit is equal to 1 paid download or 150 streams.

Brown meanwhile received a double-platinum (2 million) award for “Heaven” and gold certifications (500,000) for “There Goes My Everything” and “Found You.”

“What Ifs” and “Heaven” both hit #1 at country radio; “What Ifs” also reached #1 on the all-encompassing Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. “There Goes” and “Found You” were not even official radio singles.

In addition to the new certification, Brown boasts a platinum certification for his song “Used To Love You Sober.” His self-titled album is also platinum.
