Late Pop icon Whitney Houston may already sit as one of the best-selling artists in music history, but if recent updates from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) are anything to judge by her status as such won’t be changing any time soon.
See what we mean inside:
Taking to press on what would’ve been Houston’s 58th birthday (August 9), the RIAA revealed three of the diva’s most highly regarded singles had their certification statuses upgraded.
2x Platinum (indicative of 2 million units sold in the United States)
- ‘How Will I Know’ (Single)
- ‘I Have Nothing’ (Single)
1x Platinum (indicative of 1 million units sold in the United States)
- ‘All the Man That I Need’ (Single)
While ‘Nothing’ peaked at #4 on the Hot 100 at the peak of its popularity, ‘Know’ and ‘Need’ – two of Houston’s 11 Hot 100 #1 hits – topped the chart in 1986 and 1991 respectively.
The latter is of particular note as it was her last chart-topper from a studio album (‘I’m Your Baby Tonight’).
ALL THE CRACK THAT SHE NEEDS REMIX
Your a dumb ass b**** for this comment. Grow up.
All of this is disrespectful…like what in the actual f*ck?! And this was a big hit for her! 😂
How are some of these legends just now getting plaques and awards years after their prime?! Smh. That’s so crazy…rip2muva!
Queen Whitney!!! 💕 👑
Yall forgetting people Didn’t really bought singles back in the days they bought albums. This is why she got 3 diamond albums because her fans cop her albums instead of her singles.
All the d I c k s that I need 💅🏿 Yesssss what a legend
You can all laugh now because I’ve been diagnosed with postpartum depression so enjoy it while you can.
To Marilyn, I know in reality that you’re just a username on a screen but I still f*ck with you all the way. You’re still a bad bish and F*CK what anyone says.
Believe me you cunntts, I WILL be back. I just need to go away for some rest. Laugh it up.
Oh bless your heart, My Queen 👑 you will be missed. Love ya ❤️ Hope you feel better soon.
Girl bye f*** you and your nonexistent uterus, sir.
You’re not serious?
Ding ding the b**** is … on hiatus
Congratulations, don’t return
A young black woman has been brave enough to admit she may be suffering and you seem very happy about this
b**** f*** u!
First of all GAYla isn’t even a woman. A black f***** pretending to be a woman on a blog. Hate2cit
Flop lmao Mariah would never
It’s worrying that most on here dismiss legends like Whitney Houston. She was a troubled soul and we are not in a position to judge
It’s a beautiful song and I think often overlooked when it comes to Whitney’s number ones.
I see real hate for shayla in this forum can anyone tell me what the cause?
I was once a sufferer of postpartum and I couldn’t hold my baby boy for almost two years. I pray for more awareness for black sufferers of this condition
F*** all you making this about Shayla f*** that nasty b****
I hope Shayla baby get down syndrome ugly phucking bitchhh
Her head voice harmonizing with the sax live on Arsenio is peerless! My fave song of hers. She looked like THE epitome of black elegance in the music video. Voice gone too soon, soul even sooner, but all in God’s timing & will.
