His is a name making more headlines than most in recent weeks but this weekend saw 2020’s Fake Fine by Robert Grace go platinum.
By that (and per IRMA), it means sales in excess of 15,000 units – a target achieved with the help of over 7.75m streams on Spotify alone for the original release plus a further 1.4m streams of the remix feat. gnash.
Fake Fine was the fifth-biggest single from an Irish act in 2020, per the Official Irish Homegrown Chart, coming in behind Giants (Dermot Kennedy), No Judgement (Niall Horan), Winona Ryder (Picture This) and Get Out Of My Head (Shane Codd), while out-ranking the likes of Gavin James, Irish Women In Harmony, Kodaline, Chasing Abbey and Fumez The Engineer.
On the gig front, while he has been due to play the Green Room at The Academy (Dublin) on 24 April, that date has now been rescheduled to Friday 5 November. All original tickets are still valid with a handful remaining on sale.
