Three million records sold!
Def Jam announced Monday that Desiigner’s “Panda” has officially gone triple platinum.
After being released last December, “Panda” made rapid gains in popularity and became ubiquitous in a matter of weeks. In April, it became the first hip hop song since Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” to reach #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Desiigner has released a handful of songs since, including the massively hyped “Tiimmy Turner,” none of which have remotely approached the popularity of “Panda,” which has been streamed 118 million times on YouTube, 122 million times on SoundCloud, and 380 million times on Spotify. The video has been watched 114 million times.
Congrats to Desiigner. Three million records sold. Pop champagne!!!
