RIAA: Justin Bieber Hits ‘Stay’ & ‘Peaches’ Certified 3x Platinum

Published: Tuesday 14th Dec 2021 by Rashad

Over a decade into his career, Justin Bieber easily remains one of music’s most dominating forces – a position regularly reiterated by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Less than 7 months after becoming the first male singer to sell over 100 million digital records (as we reported here), the GRAMMY winner extends the record thanks to the success of his two Hot 100 #1 singles of 2021 – ‘Peaches’ (featuring Giveon and Daniel Caesar) and ‘Stay’ alongside Kid LAROI.

Details inside:

Last month, the RIAA took to press to announce Bieber’s ‘Peaches’ (found aboard his latest #1 album ‘Justice’) had crossed the organization’s threshold for 3x Platinum status – meaning it’s sold the equivalence of 3 million copies in the United States alone.

And while the announcement was preceded by news other ‘Justice’ tunes –  ‘Ghost’ and ‘As I Am’ had gone Gold (meaning they’ve sold the equivalence of 500,000 copies in the U.S.) – it was most notably predated by word the LAROI-assisted single ‘Stay’ had gone 3x Platinum as well.

With the updates, Bieber’s cumulative digital sales now sit at 105.5 million records sold in the territory (as of time reported) – extending his reign as the era’s best-selling male vocalist.

Among all artists, only Drake, Rihanna, Taylor Swift, Kanye West, and Katy Perry have sold more digital records.
