Katy Perry)," the album earned gold certification and cumulative digital track sales in excess of 6.5 million.
The duo returned with a bang in 2010, unleashing yet another platinum certified single in the top 10 hit, "My First Kiss (Feat. Ke$ha)." "STREETS OF GOLD" received an array of critical accolades, with Alternative Press featuring 3OH!3 on the cover and praising the album in a four-out-of-five starred review for "(sweeping) across a broad range of stylistic tones, maintaining levity while dabbling in comparably serious musical pursuits."
A genuinely stunning live act, 3OH!3 has sold out shows around the world, earning a "Best Tour" nomination at the 2009 mtvU Awards. Other accolades include a pair of prestigious MTV Video Music Awards nods, including "Best New Artist" and "Best Collaboration" (for "My First Kiss").
