Charli XCX now has her very first Platinum Certification for her single "Boom Clap!"
The singer/songwriter was at HOT 99.5 while in Washington D.C. to be honored with a special plaque for the achievement. The radio station's on-air personality Toby Knapp was on hand to help present the plaque to Charli, along with representatives from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Liz Kennedy, RIAA's Director of Communications and Gold & Platinum Program, said, "We're excited that this is finally all about you," referring to the fact that "Boom Clap" is Charli XCX's first solo single, having also been responsible for hits like Icona Pop's "I Love It" and "Fancy" with Iggy Azalea.
"It's one of the top-certified songs in the RIAA's program this year," commented Cara Duckworth, RIAA's Vice President of Communications. "We're so happy to be here to give you your first award."
Charli XCX was thrilled to receive recognition from the RIAA. "Can I touch it?," Charli asked as she excitedly accepted the award from Ms. Kennedy.
