The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) announced 73.5 million new Gold and Platinum Program certifications for Eminem.
The recent spike, which comes in the wake of his recent performance during the Super Bowl Halftime Show with Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige, now makes him the most awarded musical artist for singles in RIAA history, according to Variety.
The Detroit rapper also joined a prestigious list as one of seven musicians in any musical genre or era with three or more Diamond Album Awards.
