“Congratulations to Bruno Mars—the first artist with five Diamond Single Awards in the history of RIAA’s Gold and Platinum Program! This milestone is a testament to Bruno’s unstoppable creative genius and the incredible partnership he has built with the team at Atlantic Records,” said Mitch Glazier, Chairman and CEO, Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). “What Bruno has accomplished is just extraordinary. Fewer than 60 Diamond Single Awards have ever been awarded—and Bruno now has five of them!”
Bruno celebrated by thanking his fans. “Love you Hooligans. Thanks for rockin with me throughout this incredible journey. We’ve only just begun,” he tweeted.
Meanwhile, he and Anderson .Paak have the No. 1 song in the country with Silk Sonic’s “Leave the Door Open,” which returns to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 for a second week.
