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.
American DJ duo The Chainsmokers were presented with Canadian award plaques this weekend prior to their massive set at Toronto’s VELD Music Festival. The unique custom plaques commemorate the Double Platinum certifications of the summer anthems “Roses (ft. Rozes),” and “Don’t Let Me Down (ft. Daya).”
The duo shared the news with their fans via Twitter, thanking Sony Music Canada for their efforts. The duo also thanked their Canadian fans for their energy during their performance with a unique video that provides a glimpse at their view from the VELD main stage.
