Spice’s track “Go Down Deh” with veteran artists Shaggy and Sean Paul is the gift that keeps on giving as she earns her first platinum song.
“Go Down Deh” is now eligible for Gold Certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and Spice is now in the Platinum club as the song goes Platinum in Canada. According to Music Canada, for a song to be certified Platinum, it must sell at least 80,000 units from digital downloads, streams, or pure sales of physical copies.
Spice’s new certification for the VP/ADA records track was posted by Music Canada on February 6, 2024. The Queen of Dancehall is enjoying the success of “Go Down Deh”, her bestselling song off her debut album ‘10’, released in 2021 by VP Records.
