  • Dwayne Johnson's catchy track You're Welcome, from the Disney film Moana, has gone four times platinum.
  • The actor celebrated the news with an Instagram post, thanking fans for their support, and also thanking his 2-year-old daughter Tiana who loves the track.
  • Dwayne played demigod Maui in the 2016 film.


"What can I say except, you're welcome?" Admit it, you sang those words.

Honestly, we can't blame you. The lyrics, of course, come from Dwayne Johnson's masterpiece, You're Welcome, from the Disney movie, Moana.

In fact, the song is so popular that it was just certified four times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), according to People.

Dwayne shared the news on Instagram, posting a screengrab from international publication Headline Planet.

"I usually have a cool and calm demeanor when I hear good news, but admittedly when I heard this I said, "HOLY SHIT MY SONG WENT QUADRUPLE F*CKING PLATINUM?? (sic)" he captioned the post.

The actor thanked his fans around the world for contributing to the success of the song, and also praised Lin-Manuel Miranda for writing the catchy tune.

Of course, Dwayne could not leave his daughter, Tiana, off the list. 

The star shared a clip of him singing You're Welcome to the 2-year-old who we know is a big fan of Maui (Dwayne's character in the film).

"A huge daddy thank you to the real reason this song is 4Xs Platinum and growing - my 2 year old boss, Baby Tia who LOVES hearing me sing this song to her, but has no idea I'm actually, Maui - which kinda makes this whole thing that much more awesome (sic)," he wrote.
