On Wednesday (March 4), the RIAA let Hayes know that he’d earned double platinum certification for “I Want Crazy” for reaching the 2-million level. Plus, he received gold certifications — signifying 500,000 units — for “Everybody’s Got Somebody But Me” and “Invisible.”
“As a musician, you always hope your songs connect, whether it’s with one person or 100 people or even thousands,” he said. “To know that this many people went out and bought these songs and are playing my music, it’s the best feeling in the world. It means we’re in this together, and I’m so grateful for that.”
And not to put any pressure on Hayes or anything, but he’s currently in the studio making new music right now. Seriously, though. No pressure.
