Ahead of his Toronto show at the Air Canada Centre last week, Ultra Music Canada and DMD Entertainment presented Kygo with a 6x Platinum plaque for his single with Selena Gomez, “It Ain’t Me,” which is the highest certification worldwide on this single.
The Norwegian DJ was also given a Platinum plaque for his debut album Cloud Nine, which also included 3 Double Platinum Singles “Firestone (ft. Conrad Sewell)”, “Stole The Show (ft. Parson James)” & “Stay (ft. Maty Noyes), and 2 Gold singles “Raging (ft. Kodaline)” and “Carry Me (ft. Julia Michaels).”
Kygo, the 22-year-old Norwegian DJ, songwriter, and producer behind the hit album Cloud Nine, received a plaque commemorating the Platinum status of three of the album’s singles in Canada last week.
Ultra Music Canada presented Kygo with the award at the inaugural FUZEnation music & technology summit, which took place Sept. 27 – 30 in the Waterloo, Ontario region.

Kygo achieved Platinum status for his songs “Stay” ft. Maty Noyes, “Stole The Show” ft. Parson James, and “Firestone” ft. Conrad Sewell last month. The songs were among the initial titles to be certified under Music Canada’s new Single Award guidelines, which now includes on-demand audio streams from subscription services with digital download and CD single sales.
