Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine Track 'Ain't Easy' Goes Gold

Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine, who were chosen to record “Ain’t Easy” on the second episode of The Launch, are celebrating this week.

The song was officially certified Gold in Canada on Tuesday.

"Thank you SO MUCH to all the fans who downloaded / streamed ‘AINT EASY’ So humbling to be officially certified #GoldInCanada!," read a tweet from the duo.

In Canada, Gold certification represents 40,000 units, which includes digital sales as well as streams (with 150 streams counting as one unit).

The only other Canadian single to be certified gold this month is “Body” by Loud Luxury (aka Ontario-bred duo Andrew Fedyk and Joe Depace).

“Ain’t Easy,” penned by Ryan Tedder and Camila Cabello, shot to No. 1 on the iTunes chart after The Launch episode aired. The song is currently in the top 30. 

In the episode, Woods predicted the track “is going to be a complete smash.”

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, and released several singles.

Elijah Woods x Jamie Fine have a sold out show Friday night at Barrymore’s in Ottawa.

The Launch is a production of Bell Media, parent company of this website.
