The Melody Gad Kranium, who recently celebrated his birthday, has another reason to celebrate as his hit single, released and uploaded on Youtube 6years ago, “Nobody Has To Know“ has reached a mega milestone on YouTube.
The single, which was originally released in 2013, was re-released in 2015 to feature American rapper Ty Dolla Sign, and the video has now amassed 100 million views on YouTube. Kranium, whose real name is Kemar Donaldson, gained international recognition from the 2013 release of Nobody Has To Know, which led to him joining the Atlantic Records label.
Nobody Has To Know, produced by Lamar Michael Reynolds of PLMR Productions, peaked at No. 44 on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart before it was certified gold in the United States by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) in September 2019 for sales of more than 500,000 copies.
The song was also certified gold in Canada for selling 40,000 copies, and silver in the United Kingdom for sales of more than 200,000 copies.
Now in 2021, Nobody Has To Know is still showing staying power as it’s being streamed heavily. The St James native wrote in a timely Tweet yesterday, “I have this thing no matter how old my records is they still be sounding fresh”.
