RIAA: Justin Bieber’s ‘Sorry’ Certified DIAMOND

Published: Monday 29th Mar 2021 by Rashad

Wins keep coming in for global Pop superstar Justin Bieber.

Just a day after the GRAMMY winner learned his latest album, ‘Justice,’ was presiding atop the Billboard 200 (as we reported here), the project’s latest single, ‘Peaches’ (featuring Giveon and Daniel Caesar), was announced as the Hot 100 champion – to historic measure.

No stranger to record books, Bieber – who is already the most certified male vocalist in the history of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) – has now extended claim to the title thanks to the addition of his second Diamond single.

According to the RIAA, ‘Sorry’ – the second single from Bieber’s fourth studio album ‘Purpose’ – has sold the equivalent of 10 million copies in the United States since its October 28, 2015 release, thereby crossing the organization’s threshold for Diamond certification.

By doing so, ‘Sorry’ not only becomes the 46th song in history to earn such honor but it’s also the second Diamond-certified single of the singer’s career as it follows the success of his 12x Platinum debut single, 2010’s ‘Baby.’ What’s more, the update brings Bieber’s cumulative total to 97 million sold in the United States – the most of any male vocalist.

It’s being incorrectly reported by some that ‘Sorry’ is his third hit of such RIAA caliber as he is listed as a contributor to the remix of the 2017 history-making Luis Fonsi hit, ‘Despacito.’  While the song is indeed Diamond-certified, the RIAA does not credit a tune’s certification success to features – only to main artists.

As such, Katy Perry, Eminem, and Ed Sheeran remain the only acts in history to own three Diamond-certified singles.

    True fact: People literally copy Justin’s God given blessings. But his are real from God. Evil is always lurking around the good. The JUST shall prevail. ❤️
