The Interscope soundtrack to the summer musical film "Moulin Rouge" has been certified gold and platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for U.S. shipments of 500,000 and 1 million copies, respectively. The set features the Labelle hit "Lady Marmalade" remade by Christina Aguilera, Lil' Kim, Mya, and Pink. That single had a five-week run on top of The Billboard Hot 100 and is the No. 1 single in Europe this week.

Several albums reached new platinum levels in the latest RIAA accounting, led by Jimmy Buffett's 1992 set "Boats, Beaches, Bars & Ballads" and Trisha Yearwood's 1997 album "Songbook - A Collection," both on MCA Nashville and certified for U.S. shipments of 4 million copies. Destiny's Child's Columbia set "Survivor" tipped the 3 million mark, while Limp Bizkit's 1997 debut, "3 Dollar Bill, Y'all" (Interscope) tipped 2 million.

Albums reaching the gold certification level include Radiohead's "Amnesiac" (Capitol), Jessica Simpson's "Irresistible" (Columbia), and "The Sopranos: Peppers and Eggs" (Columbia) soundtrack. Also reaching the gold plateau is Weezer's self-titled set, released in May, and its 1996 album "Pinkerton," both on Geffen.
