Reach Records has announced big news.
Reach Records artist Andy Mineo’s single titled “You Can’t Stop Me” has been officially certified Gold by the RIAA. The song recently moved the equivalent of more than 500,000 copies, which includes over 51 million streams to date. According to Spotify data, of the 500,000 units required to make gold, their curated playlist, Beast Mode, is responsible for 100,000 of those units alone. The power of playlisting in the digital era continues to change the game for indie artists. The music video, released on January 16, 2015, has garnered more than 9 million views across social channels.
“I told my mom I went gold and she didn’t know what that meant and I was immediately humbled,” said Andy. “It’s Incredible we did this without any radio play. A small, dedicated team from Reach Records and Miner League gave this record all they had and the organic sharing of my fans started this wave. It shows that without my fans I wouldn’t be able to do this music thing for a living. Shout-out to the playlist programmers who gave the record a chance. I’m thankful for everyone who believed, felt encouraged, and shared the record. I dedicate this to 11-year-old Braydon who made ‘You Can’t Stop Me’ his theme song for beating cancer, and everyone else who has used the song to push through tough times.”
Alex Medina and GAWVI produced the track for Mineo’s ‘Never Land’ EP.
In 2017, Mineo released his Billboard-charting collaboration with Wordsplayed, ‘Magic & Bird,’ and set out on his capacity-crowd 31-city Friends and Family tour.
