Kid Cudi‘s career-defining 2008 hit, “Pursuit Of Happiness,” officially has earned a super rare Diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America.
The RIAA hands out certifications via their Gold & Platinum program based on the number of albums and singles sold. Digital streams also count toward the milestones. While a Platinum certification marks 1 million units sold, a Diamond certification is for 10 million. Less than 100 artists have ever been awarded a Diamond certification.
Earlier this year, Kid Cudi dropped his tenth album, Entergalactic, which also served as the soundtrack for his Netflix animated film.
Pursuit of Happiness is certified DIAMOND!! 🙏🏾 THANK U to everyone who connected w this song and played it over and over all these years. I love you all!! 😘🥰💖✌🏾
