Zedd achieves first Platinum status in the US after ‘Clarity’ reaches 1 million in sales
In May, “Clarity” went Gold, and in just one month managed to double its sales to reach coveted Platinum status. While Zedd isn’t the only dance music artist to achieve this milestone, he is among a tiny and elite group of DJs that includes Afrojack (“Take Over Control”), Martin Solveig (“Hello”), and Daft Punk (“Get Lucky”). Zedd’s achievement may have been aided by his promotional performances on Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, both of which were well-received.
HOLY CRAP!!! #CLARITY JUST WENT PLATINUM IN THE US!!!!!!!!

In the last year, Zedd has gone Gold and Platinum, broken genre barriers with his live TV performances, helped produce Lady Gaga’s album, seen coverage by Glee, and is set to score a scene in an upcoming feature film. With all of these achievements already in his back pocket we’re curious to see what he lines up next.
