Published: Saturday 17th Oct 2020 by Ryan

John Legend continues to break records.

Full story below:

A mere month after his only chart-topper, ‘All of Me,’ was certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)(as we reported here), the track has reached a new milestone.

The song now ties ‘Despacito,’ by Justin Bieber, Daddy Yankee, and Luis Fonsi, as the highest certified track in RIAA history.

Both songs have reached an astounding 13x Platinum.

Legend responded to the news in a post to his Instagram account, saying:

“Beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you.”

‘All of Me’ served as the third single from Legend’s 2013 album, ‘Love in the Future.’ The track went on to top the Billboard Hot 100 and became the second best-selling song of 2014, where it sold over 4 million copies that year alone.

Needless to say, congratulations are in order.

        Clocked that troll with facts. I approve 💁🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️🙌🏻🙌🏻💋

      • Clarks0o0ñ October 17, 2020

        Dumb f****, the label hasnt bought the diamond certification for Havana that’s why Havana is not listed on riaa website

        U thought u did something but u failed

      • Shayla Queen 👑 October 17, 2020

        DRAG DEM CLARK!!! 😝🤣 Clarkson you are a LEGEND!!! 👑🔥

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(drink my diva cup ☕️) October 17, 2020

        Nice try asshole(s). You can’t deflect that b******* misinformation. By saying “Havana is diamond”, ur ass was saying Havana is certified diamond. A song can’t get a diamond status without a certification. Check ur motherfuckin facts before you make b******* statements. to clarify, if it ain’t certified, it ain’t diamond. Dummy troll 🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻

        And for the record:
        “Since the official diamond award was unveiled in 1999, it has been awarded sparingly — if a song has moved at least 10 million equivalent units by combining sales and streaming numbers, and if an artist or label requests certification”

      • 🍭marilyn monh-O-E🍭(drink my diva cup ☕️) October 17, 2020

        To reiterate…Havana is NOT diamond 😂😂😂😂🖕🏻🖕🏻💋💁🏼‍♀️💁🏼‍♀️

      • Andrew October 17, 2020

        Havana is not diamond. If it was diamond, it would’ve been diamond, it’s that simple. But she’s not diamond. Try next.
