RIAA: ‘Genie in a Bottle’ Becomes Christina Aguilera’s Third Multi-Platinum Single

Published: Saturday 20th Nov 2021 by Rashad

Thanks to her 1999 debut single, ‘Genie in a Bottle,’ Pop powerhouse Christina Aguilera has been granted yet another shiny plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Details inside:

With multiple Hot 100 chart-toppers and multi-million selling albums to her credit, Christina Aguilera is one of the best-selling artists of her generation.  Yet, her dedicated fans – affectionately called #Fighters – may be surprised to know only three songs from her highly revered discography have been certified 2x Platinum or higher at the RIAA.

On Wednesday (November 17), ‘Genie’ – the lead single from Aguilera’s nearly Diamond-certified, eponymous debut album (1999) – had its certification status upgraded to 2x Platinum.  The measure signifies sales of 2 million in the United States.  With the update, Xtina now owns 3 multiplatinum singles – ‘Genie,’ ‘Say Something’ with A Great Big World (6x Platinum), and ‘Aint No Other Man’ (2x Platinum).

Elsewhere across her discography, the follow-up singles to ‘Genie’ – ‘What A Girl Wants’ and ‘Come On Over’ – were both certified Platinum this week as well.
