Taylor Swift Receives Multiple New Platinum Certifications
Taylor Swift is celebrating some new bling. According to the RIAA, the songstress has received several new platinum certifications, signifying sales in excess of one million units, for several of her previous hits.
Her first No. 1 song, ‘Love Story,’ has been certified platinum seven times, while ‘You Belong With Me’ has been certified six-times platinum. ‘We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together’ hit the five million mark, with ‘Our Song’ certified four times platinum. ‘Mean’ and ‘Mine’ both hit the three million mark, and ‘Back to December,’ ‘Picture to Burn,’ ‘Safe & Sound’ and ‘Fifteen’ have all been certified double platinum.
In addition, ‘Crazier,’ from the film ‘Hannah Montana: The Movie,’ was certified platinum as well.
The 24-year-old has had one of the most successful careers in country music, but she recently announced she is heading in a new direction. Next month, the songstress will release her latest album, ‘1989,’ which she says is her first album of pop songs, without a hint of country.
“[It’s] the most sonically cohesive album I’ve ever made,” she says, adding that it’s her “first ever documented official pop album.”
