James Arthur's hit single 'Naked' achieves Gold certification

James Arthur's Naked has hit Gold BRIT certification in the UK.

The single was released on November 24 in 2017, and was co-written by Arthur, Kotecha Savan, Martin Max and Carlsson Johan.

The song debuted on X Factor in December 2017, and the official video was released on December 1 that same year, featuring a cameo from Cressida Bonas.

At the time of release, Arthur said: "The four chords that introduce the song are key, I think.

"Then you get the crescendo, the middle eight, the huge final chorus, but there's no sense of overload; it stays true to the simplicity of those four chords. It's like a hymn, that devotional aspect. The minute you hear those chords, you want to sing over them."

The song reached No. 11 in the UK charts and is also certified Gold in Italy. It reached No. 34 in the US Adult Top 40 Billboard Chart
