Winning: Pink Album Certified Double Platinum

Published: Wednesday 13th Mar 2013 by Sam

Is there any stopping Pink? Really.

Fresh from nabbing a Platinum certification for latest LP ‘The Truth About Love’, the Pop rebel has been awarded a double-Platinum plaque for its predecessor.

Full story after the jump…

The RIAA have announced the star’s five-year old LP ‘Funhouse’ as the latest recipient of the x2 Platinum honour after selling 2 million copies since hitting stores on October 28th 2008.

An amazing feat in itself, the achievement brings the 33 year old’s total album certifications to more than 13 million units sold, spanning seven albums, during her 13 year career.

*************

In an era where single sales and Youtube views are being pushed to inflate the importance of certain acts, Pink is proving that she is a force on both the album and single charts. Indeed, while racking up achievements such as those outlined above, she is smashing on both the US and UK iTunes singles tally with ‘Just Give Me A Reason’ – the latest release to be lifted from her current album ‘The Truth About Love’.

Pink is a multi-format monster and we’re loving it. In an era on smoke and mirrors, it’s great to see true talent still prevailing.

    Stupid she didn’t get the Grammy, but it shows more promise that she’s able to do as well as she is and be an established figure without the help of a lousy trophy.

  13. JOHNVIDAL March 13, 2013

    For some reson I don´t like her. Please don´t bash me, it´s just a question of personal taste. I know she´s talented. But her music and voice are not too special to me
