Coldplay's "X&Y" has been certified double-platinum in July by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA)
Two thumbs up maybe not enough to give praise for the exceptional band Coldplay, whose album "X&Y" has been certified double platinum in July by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Just a little more than a month after its release, the album has been sold for more than 2 million copies in U.S.. What a band?!
Also reaching multi platinum in July among others are Brooks & Dunn who go quadruple platinum for their 1997 "Greatest Hits," and country singer Kenny Chesney, whose "When the Sun Goes Down" also reaches quadruple platinum. In between, singer George Strait has been notched double-platinum with his two different albums, namely "Somewhere Down in Texas" and his 2002 "20th Century Masters-The Millennium Collection." Audioslave's "Out of Exile," Backstreet Boys' "Never Gone," Black Eyed Peas' "Monkey Business," Foo Fighters' "In Your Honor," Il Divo's "Il Divo," Jay-Z and Linkin Park's "Collision Course," and Sugarland's "Twice the Speed of Light" are the rest that are reaching platinum.
