Elton John's "Candle In The Wind 1997/Something About The Way You Look Tonight" was certified 8XP when it debuted at #1. Within a month, CITW 97 was 11XP/1.1XD. Technically, the Diamond certification was not introduced until 1999 or 2000, and CITW 97 was, and still is, the only single Diamond-eligible based on sales alone. CITW is at 8.851 M on SS, but the CD and Cassingles was also sold at non SS merchants like Card stores, grocery stores, Circle K, bookstores, etc. Those sales were in excess of 2 M.

Charlie Puth's 'Voicenotes' Is Already Eligible For A Gold Certification In The U.S.
by Bryan Rolli

His sophomore album, Voicenotes, is already eligible for a Gold certification in the United States.

Songwriter and pop/R&B crooner Charlie Puth joins the ranks of Cardi B and Post Malone this week, as his sophomore album, Voicenotes, is already eligible for a Gold certification in the United States.

The album, which came out Friday, owes its immediate success to the popularity of its pre-release singles, namely "Attention" and "How Long." The former peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in August 2017 and has been certified 3x Platinum by the RIAA, while the latter peaked at No. 21 and earned a Platinum certification. Because 10 track units equal one album sale, those two singles contributed more than 400,000 units toward Voicenotes' cumulative sales figure before the project even dropped. Additional sales from follow-up singles "Done for Me" and "Change," along with initial album streams, should account for the remainder, earning Voicenotes its Gold plaque upon submission to the RIAA, according to Chart Data.

The certification should vindicate Puth, who delayed the release of Voicenotes from early 2018 in order to make last-minute adjustments. He had already proven himself a dependable hitmaker with his previous singles, including the Selena Gomez-assisted "We Don't Talk Anymore," which peaked at No. 9; "One Call Away," which peaked at No. 12; and "Marvin Gaye," his debut single featuring Meghan Trainor, which peaked at No. 21.

Yet all of Puth's solo singles pale in comparison to the gargantuan success of his Wiz Khalifa collaboration, "See You Again," off the Furious 7 soundtrack. Recorded as a tribute to the late Paul Walker, "See You Again" spent 12 non-consecutive weeks atop the Hot 100 — tying the Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" and Eminem's "Lose Yourself" for the most weeks at No. 1 for a rap song — and its video boasts more than 3.5 billion YouTube views.

As with Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy and Post Malone's Beerbongs & Bentleys, the pre-release figures from Voicenotes won't count toward its first-week sales total. But with several positive early reviews and popular singles, the album should reinforce Puth's staying power all the same.

In my opinion, the RIAA certifications are becoming more and more meaningless...

Does anyone want to try to explain how an album like "Cracked Rear View" (Hootie & The Blowfish) just went 21 (twenty one) times Platinum???

It was 16 times platinum in 1999. 5 million since then between sales (which were still healthy at that time) and streaming (in these later years) could plausibly make for another 5 million in 19 years since then.

I'm more annoyed by albums going gold or platinum on their release week despite debuting with 150k SPS just because they had a huge lead single which RIAA counts for album certs too. Makes like 0 sense.

RIAA needs to be cancelled, but unfortunately, it's all business. I think many people forget that.

It's only sold 10,284,000 according to Soundscan as of February 2013.

Well let's give RIAA the benefit of the doubt there as when it comes to other artists people here claim Soundscan didn't cover all sales from all vendors in early 90's (check the last Janet Jackson thread for it). It's quite possible for the album to be sold much higher than Soundscan claims as it was a hit and sales were huge back then.

Why did Rhino ( a division of WBR) pick Cracked Rear View to re-certify? Rhino has hundred of albums in its catalog. Why Hootie? lol

Well, I highly doubt it generated anything from streams.

Seems odd that it would have shipped roughly 5 million, but 1999 is a LONG time ago and I see the album in the $5 bin at every Walmart...

Having a double diamond album is kind of prestige, no? Not many of those.

So "Cracked Rear View" sold 10,35 million according to Soundscan and 1,3 million (BMG Music Club)

Does that mean it sold 9 million on Columbia's Music Club? LMAO :lol:

Purple Rain would probably be on this list if WBR would actually go back and re-certify Prince's albums. :x
