RIAA: Khalid & Normani’s ‘Love Lies’ Certified 5x Platinum

Published: Friday 23rd Oct 2020 by Rashad

It’s true; ‘Love Lies’ is the gift that keeps on giving for its creators Khalid and Normani.

Produced by Charlie Handsome, the 2018-released cut – found aboard the soundtrack to the 2018 hit film ‘Love, Simon’ – not only collected a slew of awards at its height (including ASCAP, BMI, and iHeartRadio trophies) but also serves as both singers’ first top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 as leading acts.

A global hit as evidenced by its Platinum (or higher) standing in Canada, Australia, United Kingdom, New Zealand, and more, its greatest success has been found in the duo’s native USA where it recently saw its certification status upgraded yet again.

Details inside:

Last week, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) updated its logs to reveal ‘Love Lies’ is now 5x Platinum in the United States.  The status denotes sales equivalence of at least 5 million in the country.

For Normani, the win comes as her highest certification to date as it bests the performance of the 2x Platinum ‘Dancing with a Stranger’ (with Sam Smith) and the 1x Platinum success of her solo single, ‘Motivation.’

For Khalid (who boasts 15 singles to his credit certified Platinum or higher), the win comes as his second highest certification to date and follows the 7x Platinum success of his 2017-released hit ‘Location.’

    Congratulations to these two talented people! Who else is racking up all of these achievements before their first album comes out? Normani is that b*tch and anyone who thinks otherwise is clearly a hater or intimidated by her potential. This is only the beginning for Normani. Meanwhile, others have already peaked in their first 3 years.

    • #WAP October 23, 2020

      Then why are his solo songs part of the payola scandal? 🥴 Normani and her performance at the 2018 billboard awards is what made this song the success it was/is.

      • Clarks0o0ñ October 24, 2020

        It is not her song

        Here comes the tears
        As if I care😂

        @clarkson are you dumb?! Normani is a credited songwriter on this song. It’s Khalid AND Normani. Not Khalid featuring Normani. If this isn’t Normani’s song then Senorita is not Camilas. Deal.

      • Clarks0o0ñ October 24, 2020

        What of Havana? Is Havana Camila’s song ?

        Dumb àssss clown
        Ur faves doesnt have any solo achievements

        Vma award was not solo
        2 top 10 hits, not solo
        Brit award nomination , not solo
        Rolling stone magazine cover, not solo

        The bìtch cant do anything on her own

  6. Clarks0o0ñ October 24, 2020

    Khalid and PAYOLA impact

    Another fluff article from TGJ , trying to make f******* look relevant and in demand,

    If normani is so successful, why hasn’t she dropped an album or second single?

    The year is over, and normani hasnt charted any song in 2020.

    • #WAP October 24, 2020

      Why hasn’t “romance” been nominated for any awards? 😂 Why weren’t any of the romance songs nominated for any of awards? 😂 The only nominations she’s gotten this year were for shawns song senorita. Why didn’t any of her other 5 songs get any nominations? 😂 It’s over for Camila. Truth is NONE OF THE 5H GIRLS HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE SOLO! That is why Simon put them in a group! None of them are the next big thing!

      • Clarks0o0ñ October 24, 2020
