Eminem now has a total of 4 Diamond Awards from the RIAA. The Detroit rapper was presented with two ‘Digital Diamond’ trophies by Chairman and CEO of RIAA, Cary Sherman. The awards are for Em’s 10x platinum singles ‘Not Afraid’ and ‘Love The Way You Lie’ featuring Rihanna.
The rapper has now become the only artist in RIAA’s Gold & Platinum award history to earn two Digital Diamond awards.
Officially launched in 1958, the RIAA’s Gold & Platinum Program expanded in 1999 to include a Diamond Award honoring U.S. sales of 10 million or more copies of an album or single. The RIAA established its Digital Single Award in 2004 in recognition of the significant sales of emerging digital music formats.
Eminem’s other two diamond awards are for his albums — The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show.
