Jason Weaver took to social media over the weekend to celebrate his single, “ I Just Can’t Wait To Be King,” going double platinum.

The song, which is featured in the classic Disney film, The Lion King, was recorded and released in 1994.

30 years later, the single is double platinum and Jason Weaver is counting his blessings. 

The singer and star of “The Chi” took to social media to write:

I definitely would like to take a moment this morning to THANK MY HEAVENLY FATHER and LORD/SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST FOR CONTINUING TO BLESS ME AND MY FAMILY. 😊🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾💯💯💯💯

30 years later and the platinum plaques from this iconic animated film keep comin in. Wow… God is amazing, man.

He is truly worthy to be praised. 💯💯💯💯 I would also like to express to everyone just how APPRECIATIVE I am for all of the love that I’ve been able to receive over the years from fans around the world who absolutely love The Lion King.

Thank yall so much for the love and support! 😁🙏🏾✌🏾❤️

I definitely would also like to thank @disney, Sir Elton John and Tim Rice for giving a kid from Chicago a shot to be a part of cinematic history. THANK Y’ALL!! 😁🙏🏾💯

Lastly, but most importantly… I WANT TO THANK MY MOTHER @marilynhaywood16 for EVERYTHING she’s done to help steer me in the right direction throughout the course of my life, as well as throughout my career.

I share all of these accomplishments with her, because I wouldn’t have been able to achieve ANY of it had it not been for the hard work she put in, and the sacrifices that she made so that I could live out my dream.

I LOVE YOU, MA!! THANK YOU!! We’re double platinum 30 years later, mane!! 😂🙏🏾🙌🏾👊🏾💯💯💯❤️❤️❤️
