“Lights Down Low,” by DCD2/CRUSH/RED recording artist, MAX, is officially certified GOLD by the RIAA. The song is currently 23* at Pop radio with over 160 stations spinning and has almost 200 million combined streams.

DCD2 founder and FALL OUT BOY bassist PETE WENTZ says, “The reason I signed MAX to DCD2, aside from his pipes, dance moves and sparkly jackets, was because of his ambition. MAX knocks down walls if doors are closed. Super stoked to see his hard work pay off.”

MAX exclaims, “I’m blown away “Lights Down Low” has officially gone Gold! More than that, this song started as something I wrote for my wife and proposed to her with, it has been an honor to share it and have it become everyone’s song. We will always stand for love no matter someone’s sexual orientation, where they’re from, or who they are.”
