Their song “3AM” is now certified triple platinum and is headed towards quadruple. His collaborations with DJ’s and producers in recent years have collected multiple millions of spins and views throughout the world and his feature on MaWayy’s “Wrong” has enjoyed billboard chart time on Billboard Top 50 Dance Charts.
