Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” “Blank Space,” and “Bad Blood” receive new multi-platinum certifications from the RIAA.
Over the past few weeks, three singles from Taylor Swift’s blockbuster “1989” earned upgraded multi-platinum certifications.
The first wave of certifications came on August 25. That date brought news that Swift’s second “1989” single “Blank Space” went 7x platinum in the US. Fourth single “Bad Blood” went 3X platinum on the same date.
The RIAA then issued two more digital certifications on September 15. Swift’s lead “1989” single “Shake It Off” received an 8X platinum certification, while “Bad Blood” was upgraded to 4X platinum.
Swift’s first four “1989” singles — the aforementioned, plus the 2x platinum “Style” — are all multi-platinum. Current single “Wildest Dreams” is currently gold and surely on track for a platinum — if not a multi-platinum — certification in the near future.
Under the terms of the RIAA’s digital singles program, each platinum certification confirms a US unit total of 1 million. One unit is equal to one paid download or 100 streams.
The pop stars’ new singles earn high debuts on the chart. Plus, new music from Rita Ora, Robin Thicke and the return of Macklemore & Ryan Lewis!
Taylor Swift claims her ninth top 10 on Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks as “Wildest Dreams” starts its chart run at No. 3 on the survey dated Aug. 22. The track’s huge bow owes to a Swift tweet announcing “Dreams” as the fifth single from her current album, 1989.
Good news for the new release – all of Swift’s previous 1989 singles have ascended to No. 1 on Top Tracks: “Shake It Off” (one week), “Blank Space” (three weeks), “Style” (one week) and the Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Bad Blood” remix (two weeks).
Billboard + Twitter Top Tracks is a weekly ranking of the most shared and/or mentioned songs on Twitter in the U.S., ranked by the volume of shares over a seven-day period (Monday to Sunday).
Lana’s ‘High’ Start: Just below Swift, Lana Del Rey grabs a No. 4 bow for “High by the Beach,” a new cut from her upcoming album, Honeymoon. The alt-pop singer shared her new track on Aug. 10, and the official audio clip has swelled to more than 2.2 million global views on YouTube. “Beach” becomes her third top 10 entry on Top Tracks, following “Brooklyn Baby” (No. 9) and “Honeymoon” (No. 1, one week).
