Madeintyo Gets His First Platinum Plaque
Madeintyo's "Uber Eveywhere" continues to be a monster hit. The Atlanta rapper's breakthrough single has been certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America. The RIAA officially certified the track on Dec. 2.
The Platinum certification comes just a few months after "Uber Everywhere" went Gold. The track has continued to gain momentum since it was originally released in 2015. It even got the remix treatment from Travis Scott.
Madeintyo credits the early rise of “Uber Everywhere” to social media personality Julieanna “YesJulz” Goddard. YesJulz shared the song on her popular Snapchat account, which helped it spread online. Her support of the record also inspired her to bring Madeintyo out to Miami for a party she was promoting last year.
“I remember finding the song and thinking, Man, this is a hit,” she told XXL. “Tyo made a good song about a growing trend right on time. Everyone loves Uber.”
While Madeintyo's breakthrough single racks up more honors, the Private Club Records artist has been landing some major guests on his latest remixes. Last month, Madeintyo linked up with Big Sean for the remix of his song "Skateboard P." Just a few weeks later, ASAP Rocky and ASAP Nast jumped on the Atlanta rapper's "I Want." Madeintyo could be on his way to scoring another Platinum plaque if these remixes take off like Travis Scott's version of "Uber Everywhere" did.
