Gabby Barrett’s record-breaking debut single “I Hope” officially reached triple platinum status in the United States on Tuesday, September 15.
According to the Recording Industry Association of America® (RIAA), the Warner Music Nashville single has garnered a 3x Multi-Platinum certification. The certification signifies that “I Hope” has sold 3 million US units, with each unit equal to 1 paid download or 150 streams.
“What an amazing journey this song has taken me on,” Barrett previously told Billboard. “I feel so blessed and excited that fans are still loving and listening to it. I am so grateful.”
In late July 2020, “I Hope” officially reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart, making history as she has now become the first female to top the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart with a debut solo single since Carrie Underwood’s “Jesus, Take The Wheel” hit No. 1. The smash hit previously reached No. 1 on both Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase Country radio airplay Charts earlier this year, earning Barrett her first No. 1 at Country Radio. However, the Billboard Hot Country Songs Chart combines streaming, sales and airplay, making for an even bigger success for song.
“I Hope” appears on her debut album, Goldmine, and is co-written by Barrett alongside Zach Kale and Jon Nite.
Barrett recently announced the news that her and her husband Cade Foehner are expecting a baby girl in late January 2021. The superstar also just showed off her baby bump on the 55th ACM Awards with a performance of her debut single “I Hope” and a bonus performance of her latest single “The Good Ones.”
Congratulations Gabby Barrett!
