BRUNO MARS BECOMES FIRST-EVER ARTIST TO HAVE FIVE DIAMOND SINGLES
Written by Randy C on May 25, 2021
Bruno Mars is a walking legend. The pop star has been named the first-ever artist to achieve diamond certification for five different singles.
The singles are “Just the Way You Are,” which is 12-times platinum, “Uptown Funk!” and “When I Was Your Man” at 11-times platinum, and “That’s what I Like” and “Grenade” at 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!”
“Love you hooligans,” Bruno wrote. “Thank you for rockin’ with me throughout this incredible journey. We’ve only just begun.”
