Maintaining unprecedented momentum, his breakthrough smash “Like I Want You” also just earned a platinum certification from the RIAA. The track has racked up 73.3 million Spotify streams as he now surpasses 19.8 million monthly listeners on the platform.

When It’s All Said and Done… Take Time comprises his 2020 GRAMMY® Award-nominated debut EP TAKE TIME, the critically acclaimed follow-up EP When It’s All Said and Done, and the new single “All To Me.” Right out of the gate, “All To Me” earned unanimous critical acclaim. In addition to plug from Complex and more, UPROXX raved, “The song is so good it’s a wonder why it wasn’t included on either project originally, or perhaps Giveon just never misses.” The song has already racked up 3.2 million Spotify streams and counting.
To accompany the Deluxe Album, he also dropped the new version of the music video for the recent RIAA Gold Certified single “Heartbreak Anniversary” directed by Salomon Ligthelm and featuring Samantha Logan from CW’s hit television series All American.
