RIAA: Lizzo’s ‘About Damn Time’ Certified Double Platinum

Published: Wednesday 25th Jan 2023 by Rashad

Lizzo fans (affectionately called #Lizzbians) who think its about damn time their fave added yet another shiny plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) to her growing collection will be pleased by the organization’s latest report.

Despite attempting to kick off ‘Special,’ her second major label-supported era, with the ill-fated song ‘Rumors’ (which recently went Platinum itself), Lizzo eventually struck gold – and now double Platinum – with the album’s official lead single: ‘About Damn Time.’

On Tuesday (January 24), the RIAA announced the tune had passed its threshold for 2x Platinum status (a measure that denotes sales equivalence of 2 million in the United States).

The news comes as the latest in a slew of wins for the Ricky Reed-produced bop, which not only reigned over the Hot 100 for two weeks in 2022 at the height of its popularity but also nabbed the songstress multiple GRAMMY nominations at the award show’s 65th annual ceremony that will air February 5.

With the addition of the updated ‘About Damn Time’ figures Lizzo’s cumulative digital single sales now sit at 20.5 million in the U.S.
