Despite learning her latest opus, ‘Reputation,’ was removed from the Billboard 200’s summit by chart champions U2 this week, Taylor Swift‘s Monday was still accompanied with good news.
The November 10-released set, which was certified platinum its debut week thanks to over 1 million copies shifted in pure sales, has now been boosted up to a new RIAA certification level thanks to the addition of streaming.
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) took to Twitter to congratulate Taylor on earning her first diamond-certified project as her 2008 sophomore album, ‘Fearless,’ crossed the 10x platinum threshold this month. But, as if that wasn’t enough reason for her devoted fans (affectionately called #Swifties) to rejoice, the announcement was accompanied with two more whammies.
‘Reputation’s lead singles – the #1 hit ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ and the top 5 smash ‘Ready For It’ – were both certified triple platinum and platinum respectively. The songs’ follow-up – ‘Gorgeous’ – also snagged a Gold certification.
Their parent project not only nabbed 3x platinum honors, but – after just 1 month of availability – is already the highest certified release of the year!
Congratz are in order to Ms. Swift!
