Eminem is officially the Most Gold- and Platinum Certified Singles Artiste In History

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has announced 73.5 million new Gold & Platinum Program certifications for Eminem.

The Shady/Aftermath/Interscope artiste is now the number one awarded musician for singles in the program’s history and one of only seven artists in any genre or era with three or more Diamond Album Awards, according to the data. Per Variety, the new score comes after a giant boost in streams that followed Eminem’s Super Bowl Halftime performance with Dr. Dre, Mary J. Blige, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent

Eminem’s combined six RIAA Diamond awards – three albums and three singles –cement his place as one of the most accomplished artists in history. With the 73.5 million new award units, Eminem’s RIAA Award career total is now 227.5 million – 166 million single certifications and 61.5 million album certifications, Variety reveals.

RIAA Chairman & CEO Mitch Glazier says, “These awards recognize Eminem’s unflinching commitment to his craft and the enduring connection he has forged with fans over the last twenty years. With today’s announcement, Eminem becomes the top certified singles artist in our program’s history and adds a rare third Diamond Album to his many creative accomplishments. Congratulations to Eminem and his entire label team who have set the bar higher than ever!”

“Interscope joins Aftermath in congratulating Marshall, Paul, and the entire Shady team on this remarkable achievement. It has been an honor to be part of one of the greatest journeys in the history of recorded music. The most beautiful part of this is it feels like the journey has just begun,” said Steve Berman, Vice Chairman, Interscope Geffen A&M.

Created by the RIAA in 1958 to honor artists and create a standard to measure the commercial success of a sound recording, the Gold & Platinum Awards Program is the industry’s premier barometer for recognizing artistic achievement in the music marketplace.
