The RIAA has handed out its Platinum and Gold album certifications for the month of February, and the month saw P!nk earn her third double-Platinum album for Funhouse. That record has now sold over two million copies, and P!nk's total album certifications now represent more than 13 million units sold, spanning seven albums, in her 13-year career. February's top digital download honor – 4x multi-Platinum – went to One Direction for their hit "What Makes You Beautiful." Furthermore, a Triple-Platinum song plaque was awarded to Bon Jovi, whose classic rock anthem "Livin' On A Prayer" has now been downloaded more than 3 million times. Other Triple-Platinum award winners were Atlanta rapper Waka Flocka Flame for "No Hands" and Rihanna for "S&M."
The RIAA also awarded four acts with double-Platinum digital song certifications in February: Drake for "Best I Ever Had," Country duo Florida Georgia Line for "Cruise," British popstress Cher Lloyd for "Want U Back," and The Voice coach Blake Shelton for "God Gave Me You."
February also brought many artists their first Gold or Platinum certification. The Lumineers went Platinum with their self-titled 2012 debut album, marking more than one million copies sold in the United States. Southern blues troupe Alabama Shakes and singer/songwriter Ed Sheeran both went Gold for the first time with their respective debuts, Boys & Girls and +, each selling more than 500,000 units. In the digital single category, A$AP Rocky received his first Platinum for "F**kin Problems," and singer/songwriter Randy Houser earned a Gold for "How Country Feels."
