Taylor Swift Reaches Career Milestone With Bevy of Sales Accolades
Taylor Swift has reached her share of milestones throughout her illustrious career, but this past weekend, she upped her game even more when she was presented — count them — a whopping six new certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America.
Presented to her by label head Scott Borchetta during her sold-out concerts at New Jersey's MetLife Stadium, Swift received the following six RIAA certified plaques in recognition of some incredible sales numbers:
- RIAA Triple Platinum Certification for Reputation
- RIAA Platinum Certification for “End Game”
- Double Platinum Certification for “…Ready For It?”
- RIAA Platinum Certification for “Delicate”
- RIAA Quadruple Platinum Certification for “Look What You Made Me Do”
- RIAA Diamond Certification for Fearless
Perhaps one of the most impressive feats from this most recent batch of accolades for Swift was the Diamond certification for Fearless, which signals that the country album, which included hits such as “Love Story” and “You Belong With Me,” has achieved sales and streams exceeding 10 million equivalent album units.
Of course, all of this recognition is just part of what has been quite an exciting summer thus far, career-wise, for Swift. Just this week, her song "Delicate" hit the top spot on the Top 40 radio charts, at the very same time she continues to sell out arena after arena on her Reputation Tour. The tour will continue through the fall, wrapping up in Japan in November.
If that wasn’t enough, Swift recently signed on for a role in the film version of the famed Broadway musical, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Cats, alongside fellow music giant Jennifer Hudson.
