The sensual song, lifted from the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack, has achieved platinum status as certified by the Recording Industry Association of America, for selling more than one million copies.
It seems the singer is excited about earning his third platinum plaque. “The smiling is making my face numb,” the Toronto singer tweeted to his fans.
The track is one of two songs that the singer contributed to the soundtrack, which also includes a re-worked version on Beyonce‘s “Crazy in Love.”
In related news, The Weeknd is currently recording his third album, slated to arrive later this year under the partnership between XO and Republic Records.
