Grammy Award winner Bruno Mars has made history as the first artist ever to receive five RIAA diamond certified singles. Mars’ “That’s What I Like” and “When I Was Your Man” have both been diamond certified, selling and streaming over 10 million copies and bringing his total certifications to five.  This follows the diamond certifications of “Just the Way You Are, “Grenade,” and “Uptown Funk!”. Furthermore, “Just The Way You Are” is twelve times multi-platinum, “Uptown Funk!” and “When I Was Your Man” are eleven times multi-platinum, and “Grenade” and “That’s What I Like” are ten times multi-platinum.

Congratulations to Bruno Mars – the first artist with five Diamond Single Awards in the history of RIAA’s Gold and Platinum Program! This milestone is a testament to Bruno’s unstoppable creative genius and the incredible partnership he has built with the team at Atlantic Records. What Bruno has accomplished is just extraordinary. Fewer than 60 Diamond Single Awards have ever been awarded – and Bruno now has five of them!

Mitch Glazier, Chairman and CEO, Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

This record-breaking announcement closely follows the success of Silk Sonic’s debut single “Leave The Door Open.” The song returns for the second week to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and is Mars’ eighth #1 track on the Hot 100.
