Eminem already has two diamond-selling albums on his resumé (The Marshall Mathers LP, The Eminem Show). The Detroit rap legend can now add two diamond-selling digital singles to his list of accomplishments as well.
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) awarded Em with a diamond certification for the single “Not Afraid.” After previously earning that recognition for “Love The Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna, Eminem becomes the first artist to have two digital singles sell over 10 million copies.
“We are delighted to recognize Eminem as the first artist to earn two RIAA Digital Diamond Awards. This singular achievement – earning a Diamond Award on two separate digital songs – is unparalleled, and we congratulate him on forever etching a mark in Gold & Platinum Program history,” said RIAA Chairman/CEO Cary Sherman in a statement.
