Justin Bieber’s ‘Baby’ Gets Diamond Certification

Justin Bieber can’t be stopped! Even with all the drama surrounding his personal life (the speeding, the partying, the paternity suits etc…) the ‘All Around the World’ singer is letting his music sales do the talking. That’s really what it’s all about anyways, right?

The RIAA confirmed the heartthrob’s first single ‘Baby’ off his 2010 album ‘My World 2.0,’ has been given the prestigious Diamond certification. We hope he celebrates with an iced out Fisker Karma. Actually, a more practical gift would be an iced out Vespa. It’s harder to speed on those bad boys. A Diamond certification is no joke either. That means an artist’s song must surpass 10 million sales or streams on their song. What the what?! That’s absolutely insane!

With the music industry landscape changing, the RIAA made the change to include streaming in their certification, which has made Diamond status a much more attainable goal to achieve — especially with a younger fan base that streams music more than they buy albums, whether it be digital or hard copies. This plays right into Justin Bieber’s hands! With 40 million Twitter followers, it’s no wonder the Biebs didn’t reach this echelon sooner!
