Eminem Becomes First Artist With Two Digital Diamond Awards


With “Not Afraid” and his “Love the Way You Lie” duet with Rihanna both having surpassed the 10 million mark (in terms of sales and streams online), Eminem has become the first artist to earn not one, but two Digital Diamond Awards.

The RIAA’s Chairman and CEO Cary Sherman offered the following statement in regards to the unprecedented milestone:

“We are delighted to recognize Eminem as the first artist to earn two RISS Digital Diamond Awards. This singular achievement – earning a Diamond Award on two separate digital songs – is unparalleled, and we congratulate him on forever etching a mark in Gold & Platinum Program history.”
