RIAA: Dua Lipa’s ‘Levitating’ Now 2x Platinum / ‘Physical’ Now Platinum

Published: Friday 28th May 2021 by Rashad

Thanks to hits like ‘Don’t Start Now,’ ‘Break My Heart,’ ‘Levitating,’ and ‘Physical,’ Dua Lipa has strong-armed the most-certified female album of 2020, ‘Future Nostalgia.’

And if recent updates from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) are anything to go by, the project is far from finished.

Details inside:


Taking to press Wednesday (May 26), the RIAA revealed ‘Physical’ – the second single from ‘Future’ – had crossed its threshold for Platinum status, meaning it’s sold the equivalent of 1 million copies in the United States.  The news comes just a week after ‘Levitating’ rose to 2x Platinum status in the same territory.

This update means four of the five global singles lifted from the original incarnation of Lipa’s sophomore album have been certified Platinum or higher in the United States as ‘Don’t Start Now’ and ‘Break My Heart’ were previously announced as 4x Platinum and Platinum-sellers respectively.  Together, the upgraded tallies raise her U.S. career total to 16 million digital records sold.

Fun fact:  Dua Lipa and Ariana Grande are the only two female artists to boast multiple multiPlatinum hits from a 2020-released album.

    Finally! Well Deserved! Dua needs to keep this moment. She needs not to take any breaks after her tour. Release that 3rd Album while your hot. Clearly people like her music. She needs to continue working with the best producers! Write great material. I’m sure her and her team can pull it off next era after the Tour.
