Toronto-based DJ duo Loud Luxury scored one of the hottest tracks of the summer with their breakthrough single “Body” featuring Brando (centre). Originally certified Gold in March, “Body” was officially certified 4x Platinum ahead of their massive hometown performance at Toronto’s VELD Festival, where they were surprised with a plaque from Sony Music Canada.
Moments before taking the stage for a sold-out show Tuesday night at Toronto, ON’s Air Canada Centre, UK singer and 2014 breakthrough artist Sam Smith was presented with a Multi-Platinum award plaque by Universal Music Canada. The custom award plaque commemorates the recent Double Platinum certification of his debut album In The Lonely Hour as well as it’s accompanying singles “Stay With Me” (4X Platinum) and “I’m Not The Only One” (Double Platinum).
Prior to his concert in Toronto, Smith’s tour stopped in Montreal for a sold-out show at the Bell Centre. Smith expressed his gratitude for his enthusiastic Canadian fans in the Instagram photo below:
