YUNGBLUD just received his first gold certified single thanks to his collaboration with Halsey and blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. 

11 Minutes” is now certified gold in the U.S., which is the same as saying the artist sold 500,000 units of it.

The trio dropped the track back in February, which is about self-sabotage. 

“The song tells the story of a perfect tragedy that reflects modern love within our society,” YUNGBLUD explains. “We are so distracted and focused on what’s next, we can fail to see what is actually in front of us. We don’t realize how much we need something until it’s taken away from us.”

“Working with Halsey and Travis was a fucking dream—at the end of the day we’re all rock kids,” YUNGBLUD says. “We grew up with a mutual adoration for the genre so it completely makes sense that we would come together and try to modernize it.”

You can see the video for “11 Minutes” below to celebrate its major accomplishment. 

Machine Gun Kelly also recently wrote on Instagram that his collab with YUNGBLUD and Travis Barker “I Think I’m Okay” is almost gold as well. Therefore, YUNGBLUD could have a second gold single before long. You can see MGK’s post below.
