Eminem Is First Artist To Earn Two Digital Diamond Awards
June 10, 2014


Eminem
Eminem has hit a new milestone in his long streak of impressive music sales: He has now become the first artist to earn two Digital Diamond Awards from the RIAA. Slim Shady just earned a new Diamond certification in recognition of the single "Not Afraid" surpassing the 10 million threshold counting song sales and streams. He also holds an 11x multi-Platinum Digital Single Diamond Award for "Love The Way You Lie" (featuring Rihanna). In addition to two Diamond song honors, Eminem also has two 10x multi-Platinum Diamond certified albums: The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show. His career RIAA album awards represent more than 37 million sold in the United States, while his digital single certifications surpass the 31 million threshold, counting downloads and streams and spanning 10 separate songs.

"We are delighted to recognize Eminem as the first artist to earn two RIAA Digital Diamond Awards," commented Cary Sherman, Chairman & CEO of the RIAA. "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."

Meanwhile, Eminem will kick off The Monster Tour with Rihanna this summer in Los Angeles on August 7 and 8. The brief tour also hits Detroit on August 16 and 17, and New York on August 22 and 23.
