Dua Lipa’s ‘Don’t Start Now’ Certified Double Platinum

Published: Thursday 2nd Jul 2020 by Rashad

With ‘Don’t Start Now,’ the lead single from Dua Lipa‘s sophomore album, ‘Future Nostalgia,’ the singer birthed one of the year’s most enduring hits.

Peaking at #2 on the Hot 100 (the highest mark of her career to date), the song went on to make history for making a 20-week run in the top 10 (as we reported here).

Still enjoying buoyancy in the top 20 thanks to strong radio airplay and streams, the latter component has helped push it to a higher rung in the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Details inside:


On June 30, the RIAA updated its log to reveal Lipa’s ‘Start’ had crossed the organization’s threshold for double Platinum status – meaning it’s sold the equivalent of 2 million records.

The win comes as the fifth time she’s claimed such victory in the last 2 years as previous singles ‘New Rules,’ ‘IDGAF,’ ‘One Kiss (with Calvin Harris),’ and ‘Scared to be Lonely (with Martin Garrix)have been all certified 2x Platinum or higher.

    “I like the song but what a flat chested b****!”

    A lot of us are DAY ONES here on TGJ.

    But we MUST stop denying the plain truth right in front of us…

    Whoever is running/moderating TGJ is laughably HYPOCRITICAL.

    Why do you guys continue to post so many headlines about RACE but allow racist commentsto proliferate the comment section?!

    Where is the moderator?!

    Sam, David, Rashad….


    Why do you all continue to post so many LGBTQ and social justice headlines allowing ppl to make racist/homophobic comments without penalty?!!!!

    We are now seeing a HUGE reckoning on other social media platforms FINALLY censoring hate speech from everyone. I’m 100 percent CERTAIN you guys are seeing that.

    Soooo my genuine question is…what is happening at TGJ behind the scenes?!!!

    Why are y’all SOOOOOOOO woke yet so BEHIND in offering PROTECTED community guidelines?!
