Kali Uchis’ ‘Moonlight’ Achieves RIAA Gold Certification from Her Album “Red Moon In Venus”

Kali Uchis has achieved a significant milestone in her music career as her single “Moonlight” has been certified gold by the RIAA, surpassing over 500,000 equivalent units sold. This certification marks her first RIAA award of the year and showcases the success of the track.

“Moonlight” serves as the first musical release from Kali Uchis’ most recent album, “Red Moon In Venus,” to receive a certification. The bilingual track, co-produced by Benny Blanco, Cashmere Cat, and Leon Michels, garnered widespread acclaim and chart success. It reached No. 9 and No. 10 on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs and R&B Streaming Songs charts, respectively, and peaked at No. 80 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The album “Red Moon In Venus,” released on Geffen Records on March 3, features collaborations with talented artists such as Summer Walker, Omar Apollo, and Don Toliver. The album made an impressive debut, entering No. 4 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking Kali Uchis’ first top ten entry. Additionally, it opened at No. 2 on both Billboard’s Top R&B Albums chart and Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.

Kali Uchis describes “Red Moon In Venus” as a timeless expression of desire, heartbreak, faith, and honesty, embodying the divine femininity of the moon and Venus. The album delves into different aspects of love, from releasing people with love to drawing love into one’s life and self-love. Uchis drew inspiration from the emotional intensity associated with the blood moon, which she felt best represented the essence of the album.

Previously, Uchis experienced success with her Grammy-nominated album “Sin Miedo (del Amor y Otros Demonios) ∞,” which featured the multi-platinum single “Telepatía.”

Fans can look forward to more from Kali Uchis as she embarks on the second installment of her headlining Red Moon In Venus Tour in September. With her remarkable talent and continued success, she continues to solidify her position as a prominent figure in the music industry.
