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.

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.
