Lady Gaga Earns Her Second Diamond Single
Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" just passed a major milestone that eludes many smash hits -- it's now 10 times platinum-certified by the RIAA.
The 2008 dance-pop hit -- which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 -- is now diamond. According to the RIAA's digital singles criteria, one unit is equal to one digital download or 100 streams.
This is Gaga's second song to achieve that feat -- "Bad Romance" went diamond in 2013. That certification made her the first female digital diamond award recipient.
Not long from now, Lady Gaga will be honored as Woman of the Year at Billboard's Women In Music event. Fellow honorees include Missy Elliott, Loretta Lynn, Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato, Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, Fifth Harmony, Kelsea Ballerini and Lana Del Rey. Gaga, Lovato, Gomez and Howard will also perform.
The event will be broadcast on Lifetime on Dec. 18.
