The song was a breakout single of the past year, breaking into the Billboard Hot 100 and peaking at #51 and spending 8 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Rap Airplay chart. ‘Chosen’ has amassed over 450 million streams globally to date and become an international success, achieving BRIT Silver (UK), Music Canada Platinum, RMNZ Platinum (New Zealand), ARIA Gold (Australia) certifications.

The entire Red Bull Records crew and I look forward to what’s to come with this incredible talent and our partnership with the Evgle team. Congratulations to Blxst for this well-deserved accomplishment!”
