Bruno Mars, a Grammy Award winning artist now has five Diamond Certified Singles. According to NextShark, Mitch Glazier, Chairman and CEO of Atlantic Records said that “fewer than 60 Diamond Single Awards have ever been awarded — and Bruno now has five of them!” RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) made the announcement last weekend congratulating him on the achievement. For a single to be Diamond Certified, it means it sold and streamed over 10 million copies. Bruno Mars' Diamond Certified singles include a few of songs you might know:
• Just the Way You Are is twelve times multi-platinum
• Uptown Funk! is eleven times multi-platinum
• When I Was Your Man is also eleven times multi-platinum
• Grenade and That’s What I Like are ten times multi-platinum
Atlantic Records Chairman and CEO, Mitch Glazier continued to congratulate the iconic artist.
“Congratulations to Bruno Mars – the first artist with five Diamond Single Awards in the history of RIAA’s Gold and Platinum Program! This milestone is a testament to Bruno’s unstoppable creative genius and the incredible partnership he has built with the team at Atlantic Records...What Bruno has accomplished is just extraordinary”
Bruno expressed his gratitude to his team and of course the Hooligans. He's right that he's only begun as now he ventures with Anderson .Paak into Silk Sonic. Their first single, Leave the Door Open continues to top the charts as it spent another week at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Bruno Mars’ eighth #1 track on the Hot 100.
