Eminem Is First Double Diamond Artist
The Lose Yourself hit-maker has been feted with a diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America for selling over 10 million digital copies of his 2010 single Not Afraid.
Eminem’s collaboration with Rihanna, Love The Way You Lie, was also previously certified diamond. Announcing the new accolade, RIAA chairman and CEO Cary Sherman says, “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.” In addition to the singles, the 42 year old has two diamond-selling albums – The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show.
