English producer Jamie xx’s decision to seek out the St. Thomas native for I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) has paid off, after the 2015 track was certified Gold on March 3 by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times), which also features American rapper Young Thug, is the third single from Jamie xx’s debut studio album, In Colour. With 19 million views on YouTube for the official music video, the single received its Gold certification after selling 500,000 units of combined sales and streaming data.
The song peaked at number 115 on the UK Singles Chart and number 90 on the Australian ARIA Charts. It grew in popularity over the years and was given a major boost when it appeared on the soundtrack for the video game NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K17 and for Kobe Bryant’s MyCareer spot.
