It gets lonely at the top;  just ask Justin Bieber.

The ‘Lonely’ singer, already the best-selling male vocalist of the digital era, extended that this month record thanks to the Benny Blanco & Finneas-produced song crossing the Recording Industry Association of America’s (RIAA) threshold for Platinum status.

Details inside:

Just a month after learning his hit, ‘Holy,’ had been certified 2x Platinum for sales equivalence of 2 million in the United States (click here to read more), the tune’s follow-up – ‘Lonely’ – is halfway there according to RIAA reports it’s now Platinum.  Following ‘Somebody to Love’ (2010), ‘Eenie Meenie’ (2010), ‘Love Yourself’ (2015), and ‘Cold Water’ (2016), ‘Lonely’ comes as the fifth collaboration of his career with Benny Blanco but first where the Pop producer extraordinaire is co-credited as a performer.

On the Hot 100, the song ranks as the 33rd top 20 hit of Justin’s career (click here to read more).

As it relates to the RIAA, the additional 1 million to his overall tally sits Bieber at cumulative sales of 95.5 million in America – more than any other male vocalist in the history of digital music.  Among all acts of the digital era, only Drake, Kanye West, Eminem, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, and Katy Perry have sold more.

    Okay? But he’s released 3 songs within 5 months and still no album. He knows his career is over and he knows his album will flop worse than changes. He ruined career when he took that long break, got married, and when he released yummy. It’s done for him and Ariana. Scooter, your time is up ⌛️
