Eminem can already say he has two diamond-selling albums, The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show. Now Eminem can also say he has two diamond-selling digital singles as well.
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) awarded Eminem for the single “Not Afraid.” After being awarded the same for a single before for “Love The Way You Lie” featuring Rihanna, Eminem is currently the first artist ever to have two singles sell over 10 million copies. RIAA Chairman/CEO Cary Sherman said in a statement:
“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”
