Bruno Mars has reached a new career milestone. The singer’s 2012 chart-topper “Locked Out Of Heaven” has officially been certified diamond by the RIAA.
With this latest achievement, the acclaimed musician becomes the first artist in the history of RIAA’s Gold and Platinum Program to achieve six Diamond Single Awards.
The other five songs by Bruno Mars that have reached diamond status are as follows: “Just the Way You Are,” “Grenade,” “When I Was Your Man”, “That’s What I Like,” and the collaborative “Uptown Funk” with Mark Ronson.
Mars also stood as the one-time cover star for Spotify’s BILLIONS CLUB playlist, with “Locked Out Of Heaven” becoming his sixth song to earn 1 billion streams on the platform. Additionally, “Uptown Funk!,” “24K Magic,” “When I Was Your Man,” “Just The Way You Are,” and “That’s What I Like,” count towards the record-number of streams.
The Honolulu-raised artist is likely to count more diamond records and songs reaching over 1 billion streams in the future.
