Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine have good reason to celebrate this week at the iHeartRadio FanFest – their single “Ain’t Easy” has been certified Platinum in Canada.
The song debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in January after the Ontario duo was chosen on the second episode of CTV’s The Launch to record the track, penned by Ryan Tedder.
Platinum status in Canada represents sales of 80,000.
According to a release, EWxJF have had over 8 million streams worldwide of “Ain’t Easy.”
A French-language version of the song was released in April.
Woods and Fine met while he was studying engineering and production at Ottawa’s Algonquin College and she was working at the school after graduating from its culinary program. They started writing and recording together in a studio set up in the basement of Woods’ home in Perth, a small town about an hour west of Ottawa.
In addition to appearing at the iHeartRadio FanFest in Toronto on Friday, EWxJF is set to perform at several music festivals in June and July.
