Flume scores his first platinum record in the US
Flume has scored a platinum record for his blockbuster hit from Skin, “Never Be Like You,” featuring Kai. While the producer, born Harley Streten, has received multiple platinum certifications in his home nation of Australia, this marks his first-ever platinum record in the US.
Platinum of course translates to the sale of 1 million units (with 100 streams equating to 1 sale). In the case of Flume, the huge influx of digital streams on the single undoubtedly contributed to the certification. Spotify, for instance, is currently at 181 million streams on the single with YouTube at 35 million.
“Never Be Like You” is the lead single from Flume’s sophomore album Skin, which peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart. The song has already gone triple platinum in Australia.
