RIAA: Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’ Hits 4x Platinum / ‘Let’s Talk About Love’ at 11x Platinum

Published: Saturday 5th Nov 2022 by Rashad

Celine Dion‘s signature hit, ‘My Heart Will Go On,’ may only be two months away from its 25th anniversary, but the tune continues to gain ground on digital and streaming platforms over 2 decades after first dominating charts.

On a global scale, the Walter Afanasieff-produced number stands as the second best-selling female song of all time with reported sales in excess of 18 million (bested only by Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Will Always Love You)

Stateside, ‘Heart’ recently saw its certification status pumped upward at the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) alongside its parent album, ‘Let’s Talk About Love,’ and other popular Dion titles.

Look inside for the full list.

On Thursday (November 3), the RIAA took to press to announce ‘My Heart Will Go On’ was elevated to 4x Platinum – meaning it’s sold the equivalence of 4 million in the United States.

A personal milestone for the Pop diva, ‘Heart’ extends its reign as her best-selling single in the U.S.  Its 1997-released parent album, ‘Talk,’ was elevated to 11x Platinum on Thursday as well.  The project is her second best-selling album in the territory and follows the 12x Platinum ‘Falling Into You’ released the year prior.  Both efforts are listed among the highest-certified female studio albums of all time.

Finally, Dion’s 1998-released holiday LP – ‘These Are Special Times’ – was recently hoisted to 6x Platinum status.

Already one of the best-selling artists in the history of recorded music, the updates lift Celine’s cumulative album sales to 53 million in the United States.

Among females, her Stateside album sales total is only bested by Mariah Carey (71 million), Barbra Streisand (68.5 million), Madonna (64.5 million), and Whitney Houston (60 million).
