Despite taking 15 weeks to crack the top 20 (as we reported here), Camila Cabello‘s slow burning hit ‘My Oh My’ continues to make detractors say just that as it’s now added a few new achievements to a growing list.
On May 4, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) officially announced Cabello’s DaBaby-assisted tune, ‘My Oh My,’ had met its threshold to be certified for Platinum status. The award denotes sales equivalence of a million copies “sold” in the United States.
The plaque will be the sixth she’s received since becoming a solo act.
Note: The RIAA only credits an artist’s awards as a leading act to their overall certification count.
As if that’s not enough good news, the tune – as predicted here – now occupies the top position on Billboard Pop Songs chart (which measures total weekly radio airplays, as tabulated by Nielsen Music/MRC Data, among its reporting panel of 166 mainstream top 40 stations).
“Camila Cabello’s “My Oh My,” featuring DaBaby, rises to No. 1 on Billboard’s Pop Songs radio airplay chart, dated May 9.
The track, released on SYCO/Epic Records, becomes Cabello’s fifth Pop Songs leader, after “Señorita,” with Shawn Mendes (four weeks at No. 1, beginning last August); “Never Be the Same” (three, May 2018); “Havana,” featuring Young Thug (seven, December 2017); and “Bad Things,” with Machine Gun Kelly (two, February 2017).”
Despite its ongoing success on radio, ‘My’ did not fulfill the prediction of cracking the top 10 of this week’s Hot 100. Next week may tell a different story, however.
