RIAA HAS SOME HALF-YEAR HONORS

The RIAA has released gold and platinum stats for albums and singles issued in the first half of 2021. Leading the way are Olivia Rodrigo and Justin Bieber.

Geffen’s Rodrigo had the top digital single (“driver’s license”) and her SOUR tied with Bieber’s Justice (Def Jam) for top album.

Gold album honors went to GIVĒON's When It’s All Said and Done… Take Time (Not So Fast/Epic), Maroon 5’s Jordi (222/Interscope), DJ Khaled’s Khaled Khaled (We the Best/Epic), Pooh Shiesty’s Shiesty Season (1017 Global/Atlantic) and Moneybagg Yo’s A Gangsta’s Pain (CMG/NLess/Interscope).

The two multiplatinum singles were both Columbia releases: Lil Nas X’s “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” and Lil Tjay & 6LACK’s “Calling My Phone.”

Among the nine platinum singles were Coi Leray’s “No More Parties” (Republic), Bieber’s “Anyone” and “Peaches,” Polo G’s “Rapstar” (Columbia) and Saweetie f/Doja Cat’s “Best Fried” (Warner).
