Eminem has earned over 100 million song awards from the Recording Industry Association of America, making him one of the most decorated artists in music.
The RIAA announced the news today, after “Lose Yourself” surpassed the 10 million units marker to earn the diamond certification. It becomes his third diamond single following his Rihanna collaboration “Love the Way You Lie” (12 million) and “Not Afraid” (10 million).
“Congratulations to @Eminem,” the RIAA said via Twitter. “107.5 million song awards. Three Diamond Songs. #RIAATopCertified.”

The Detroit MC has amassed a whopping 107.5 million units to become the second best artist on its Top Artists (Digital Singles) list. He earned this distinction after beating out Taylor Swift’s 106.5 million units. Both still trail Rihanna, who leads with 121 million certified units.
Additionally, Em has had two albums go diamond, including The Marshall Mathers LP (10 million) and The Eminem Show (10 million).
Em’s latest album Revival dropped in December and spawned the Ed Sheeran-assisted single “River,” which peaked at No. 11 on the Hot 100.
