Headline Planet just revealed its list of the Top 20 pop hits of 2018.

The song that took #1 on the 2016 countdown just received a mammoth new certification in the Land Down Under.

The Chainsmokers’ “Closer (featuring Halsey),” that song, now boasts a 15x platinum award in Australia.

Auspop first shared news of the certification.

Issued by ARIA, the award signifies at least 1.05 million in Australian units.

“Closer” enjoyed a multi-week stint atop the ARIA Australian Top 50 singles chart. While it fell off the chart a while back, it maintained a Top 100 position in Australian as recently as last week.
