P-L-A-T-I-N-U-M -- that's how you spell "Friends."
Marshmello and Anne-Marie's collaboration may never have broken the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at No. 11, but that didn't stop it from being certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), recognizing 1 million equivalent song units earned in the U.S. "Friends" served as the U.K. singer's lead single from her debut LP Speak Your Mind. She accepted the plaque just before hitting the stage for a sold-out show at the Roxy Theater in Los Angeles on Monday night.
“I love Marshmello," Anne-Marie said in a press release announcing the certification. "Working with him was so much fun and I can’t wait to work with him again. Talented, humble, lovely human.....I mean, Marshmello."
