Bruno Mars’ star is not dimming any time soon.
The superstar has now officially raked in RIAA diamond certification for five singles, the organisation confirmed.
“Love you hooligans,” Bruno wrote to his fans on Twitter. “Thank you for rockin’ with me throughout this incredible journey. We’ve only just begun.”
Here’s what Complex said about the history he made:
To break it down a little further, “Just the Way You Are” has been certified 12-times platinum, “Uptown Funk!” and “When I Was Your Man” have been certified 11-times platinum, and “That’s What I Like” and “Grenade” has been certified 10-times platinum. “This milestone is a testament to Bruno’s unstoppable creative genius and the incredible partnership he has built with the team at Atlantic Records,” Mitch Glazier, Chairman, and CEO of the RIAA praised in a statement. “What Bruno has accomplished is just extraordinary. Fewer than 60 Diamond Single Awards have ever been awarded – and Bruno now has 5 of them!”
Outside of making history, the one half of Silk Sonic is currently enjoying his time watching “Leave The Door Open” climb the charts and dominate summer radio. The single returned to the Billboard Hot 100 charts on Wednesday, and the video, to date, has been viewed more than 200 million times.
Reacting to this awesome news, Bruno’s cohort Anderson Paak wrote on Twitter: “WE GONE BE SINGIN THIS ALL YEAR!!! YALL MIGHT NEVER GET THE ALBUM!!”
