Bruno Mars has made history as the first artist ever to receive five RIAA diamond certified singles.
Mars’ “That’s What I Like” and “When I Was Your Man” have both been diamond certified, selling and streaming more than 10 million copies and bringing his total certifications to five.
The latest certifications are in addition to “Just the Way You Are, “Grenade,” and “Uptown Funk!(Mark Ronson),” which have already received the diamond certifications.
“Just the Way You Are” is twelve times multi-platinum, “Uptown Funk!” and “When I Was Your Man” are eleven times multi-platinum, and “Grenade” and “That’s What I Like” are ten times multi-platinum.
Congratulating the multiple Grammy Award winner, Recording Industry Association of America Chairman and CEO Mitch Glazier said, “This milestone is a testament to Bruno’s unstoppable creative genius and the incredible partnership he has built with the team at Atlantic Records”.
Fewer than 60 Diamond Single Awards have ever been awarded, he noted.
