OMI’s smash hit single “Cheerleader” is the gift that continues giving for the Jamaican singer.
The “Cheerleader” remix done by German DJ Felix Jaehn is now certified four-time platinum in the United Kingdom by the BPI (British Recorded Music Industry).
According to the BPI, a single must sell over 600,000 units to get platinum certified, a milestone OMI and Felix Jaehn accomplished four times since the track became a worldwide hit in 2014.
Cheerleader was produced by Clifton “Specialist” Dillon and recorded at Oufah Recording Studio in Kingston in 2012. Two years later, German DJ/producer Felix Jaehn remixed the single, which was re-released by Ultra Music.
The track is featured on Shazam’s “Most Searched-for Songs Of All Time” list, securing the number 19 spot.
The official music video released on April 8, 2015 has since amassed over 1 billion views on YouTube.
