Calvin Harris receives diamond certification; first EDM artist to do so
Calvin Harris‘ first collaboration with Rihanna, 2011’s “We Found Love,” has been certified as diamond by the RIAA to signify that it has sold 10 million copies. As the first single from the sultry singer’s sixth album Talk That Talk, the song proved to be a massive crossover hit and kicked off a string of collaborations between Harris and Rihanna.
“We Found Love” is joined by 9 other digital singles to have reached diamond certification, though it is the first EDM track to do so. Other diamond-certified hits include Lady Gaga‘s “Poker Face” and “Bad Romance,” Justin Bieber‘s “Baby,” and Katy Perry’s “Dark Horse.” Gaga’s “Poker Face” was the last addition to the list, making its debut in January.
