Taylor Swift's Red Turns Triple Platinum
December 11, 2012


Taylor Swift
The RIAA has handed out its Gold and Platinum album certifications for November, and Taylor Swift's Red earned a 3x Multi-Platinum award in only one month. With the October release of Red, Swift has earned her fastest rise yet to Triple Platinum success. Her career album certifications now surpass 15 million sold across five separate records. Meanwhile, new holiday albums from Scotty McCreery and Blake Shelton, Christmas with Scott McCreery and Cheers It's Christmas, respectively, turned RIAA Gold in November. Merry Christmas, Baby from Rod Stewart also went Platinum in just one month.

November's top RIAA song certification was awarded to Carly Rae Jepsen for going 6x Multi-Platinum with her ubiquitous track, "Call Me Maybe." Another omni-present song, "Gangnam Style" by PSY, made its debut on RIAA's G&P chart in November, certifying Gold, Platinum and Double Platinum. Four other artists earned their first Platinum song download awards in November: Florida Georgia Line for "Cruise," Imagine Dragons for "It's Time," Skrillex for "Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites," and The Lumineers for "Ho Hey."

As previously reported, Adele earned a prestigious RIAA Diamond certification in November by reaching more than 10 million in sales for 21. Not only did Adele go Diamond, but she also became the first artist in a decade to do so in less than two years! Adele further added to her bling in November by certifying her James Bond theme song, "Skyfall," as Gold.
