In the UK, the record became the “Biggest New Artist Album Release” that year and has been certified Gold in the United States, Germany, Australia, Switzerland, platinum in Canada, Ireland, Netherlands, Sweden, double platinum in the UK and has sold nearly 3.5 million albums in global consumption, and 2.7 billion streams worldwide.

In addition to selling out shows and performing at festivals across the globe, BAY lent a new version of his song “Running” for the 2016 Sports Relief charity, is an advocate for the international non-profit Wateraid, designed his own signature line for Topman, and Epiphone created the Limited Edition James Bay Signature “1966 Century” Guitar in his name.
