Troye Sivan’s Youth goes Platinum in the US!

Troye Sivan’s hit single Youth, off the album Blue Neighbourhood, has just been certified platinum in the U.S! This means the single has sold 1 million copies in the U.S, with 100 streams being equivalent to one sale. Troye took to Twitter to express his excitement and shock about the news, and also to extend his gratitude to his supporters.

Just under a month ago, on May 12th, Youth earned its gold certifiaction in the U.S, which is 500,000 sales. Troye’s performance of the song on the Billboard Music Awards helped promote the song and introduced people to his music, which probably explains the quick increase to a platinum certification.

This big news almost came in time for Troye’s 21st birthday, which was on this past Sunday, June 5th. We hope he’s enjoying the late birthday gift!

Troye has also recently announced his North American Suburbia tour, and he tweeted about his excitement to share this moment with his American fans later this year.
