The RIAA has announced that Bruno Mars’ debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans has been certified platinum. This comes after Bruno took home his first Grammy award in February for “Just the Way You Are” as 2011’s Best Male Pop Vocal Performance, and on the heels of being named one of TIME magazine’s most influential people in the world. Congrats Bruno! Check out his “Hooligans in Wondaland” tour dates with Janelle Monáe inside. (more…)
Lupe did it again! After reaching platinum status in ’07 with his hit “Superstar”, he secures another million in sales with his single “The Show Goes On”. It didn’t take a genius to figure out this one would be huge for Lupe. Next one to sell a milli should be my current favorite “Out Of My Head” with Trey Songz.
