XXXTentacion’s “Moonlight” Gets Certified Double Platinum
Three months after first getting a platinum plaque, XXXTentacion's "Moonlight" has doubled up. Last week, the RIAA revealed that X's hit ? single has officially been certified twice platinum.
"Moonlight" received this certification this past Monday (Dec. 17) with two million units sold. Three months ago, the video for X's standout record was released to fans. Creatively directed by X and directed by JMP, the video includes clips of X eyeing a woman who he never builds up the courage to talk to.
Adding to X's posthumous commercial success are songs like "Sad!" "Changes," “I Don’t Even Speak Spanish LOL,” “A Remedy for a Broken Heart (Why Am I So in Love)," "Numb” and "Hope." "Sad!" has been certified four-times platinum. "Changes," a song featuring PnB Rock, has also been certified double platinum. "Hope," which is a song dedicated to the memory of the Parkland, Fla. shooting victims, has been certified platinum. Meanwhile, “I Don’t Even Speak Spanish LOL,” “A Remedy for a Broken Heart (Why Am I So in Love)" and “Numb” all went gold.
The commercial success of X's music continues to live on after his untimely death this past June. Earlier this month, X's Skins album was released. The 10-track LP features a guest appearance from Kanye West. X's vocals were also heard on Lil Wayne and Ty Dolla Sign's "Scared of the Dark," which is featured on Marvel's film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack.
Before the soundtrack's release, Weezy teased fans by hinting that the record had a special guest, which ultimately was X. "My song 'Scared Of The Dark' with @tydolllasign (and a surprise special guest!) is on the Spider-Man: Into The @SpiderVerse Soundtrack. Pre-save it here & enter to win 2 tickets to see the movie," Weezy wrote on Twitter.
Congrats to X.
