Loïc Nottet may have come fourth at Eurovision with his song “Rhythm Inside”, but that hasn’t stopped him from achieving gold certification in Belgium. On July 1 his record label Sony Music presented him with his golden record during a live segment on NRJ radio. That means he has sold more than 10,000 copies of his song in Belgium.

It’s a great feat, if not a totally surprising one. As we previously reported, he made a huge splash on the internaitonal iTunes charts, reaching #1 in Belgium, #2 in the Netherlands, Austria, Luxembourg and Denmark, and #3 in Armenia, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Estonia and Kazakhstan. He also made the Top 10 in 11 other countries. Loïc was one of just three Eurovision artists to crack the UK Top 100, coming in at #69.

 

Before Eurovision

Ahead of Eurovision, Loïc also placed fourth with the Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of musical unprofessionals. Here’s how one of our jurors reacted to his song on first listen.

Prepare for an aural orgasm! The song, the singer – all perfect. From the moment I heard the 30-second teaser I was captivated. Lyrically sophisticated, musically daring, and filled with lush vocals – “Rhythm Inside” has it all. I wanna rap-pap-pap all night. Love, love, love! (I’ll cry if Belgian TV ruin this with crappy staging).

“Rhythm Inside” is a brilliant song. We are so lucky that Loic brought it to Eurovision. He is a class act. I hope he has much more success.

Was truly phenomenal year 4 Belgium!
The belgians followed the dutch & austrians with rising like phoenix & ruling on this Vision..
They surpassed the 200 points & that is huge achievement 4 a country like Belgium..!
They lived again the glorious old days of *Sanomi* that almost won in the Vision of Latvia back in 2003 <3
If the point system were counted like 9-10 instead of 10-12 then Belgium was the real deserved winner in 2003 with a margin of just 1 point! Its really pity that Belgium was not crowned winner back then when really WON the EuroVision!

He would have been a great winner, much better than Heroes and A Million Voices.

His song stayed at #1 on Belgian ITunes for weeks after the firsti semifinal. It’s #1 on radio and singles chart. I believe it will go Platinum by the end of year.

He has to record a new album as soon as possible and capitalise on the Eurovision success. It will difficult to top his success next year so belgium better not screw up.

*Rhythm of Gay Love* in the Vision of 2013 was amazing song…Alyona should had picked this song in Malmo…*Solayoh* although really good too was not really superior of *ROL*..
Realy fantastic song with a dance rhytmic tone that can be heard during summer <3

Well congratulations to this hot belgian baby hunk <3 His song was really sucesful both on eurovision & charts in Europe at least on the special standards 4 our EuroVision.. I do not expect the songs of ESC to sell like crazy & meet the same big success that the other super stars do…It is expected.. His song might went only to #69 in UK charts but it was the 2nd most succesful song there in the country after the winner *Heroes* that peaked on #11 So its really big deal that he managed to enter the top100 in UK..… Read more »
