Childish Gambino’s “Redbone” single was certified double platinum by the RIAA on July 10, just a little over two months after it initially went platinum.
The success of “Redbone,” which appears on Gambino’s Awaken, My Love album, has remained on the Billboard Hot 100 for 31 weeks. Although the song has sustained its chart position for a lengthy time, it hasn’t cracked the Top 10. The Bootsy Collins-inspired track peaked at #14 on the Hot 100 chart for the week ending on July 1, 2017.
The funky cut was popular upon its release in November 2016, but the song got an extra boost in 2017 thanks to its inclusion in the psychological thriller Get Out. The song sets a unique mood for Jordan Peele’s horror film as it is featured in the opening credits of the movie.
