Justin Bieber’s 2010 hit Baby has broken a new sales record in the United States.
The track has been certified with the Diamond Award by the Recording Industry Association of America, making it the highest-certified single sold in US music history!
The song has gone 12 times platinum and has racked up 3.9 million track sales and over 876 million views on VEVO.
According to Inquisitr, Baby was given Diamond status following RIAA’s inclusion of on-demand streaming data into its historic Gold and Platinum Awards Program.
Baby has since dethroned Elton John’s 1973 double A-side Candle in the Wind / Something About The Way You Look Tonight as the US’ highest certified single.
Biebs received his award from manager Scooter Braun on stage last night during his Believe World Tour stop in Newark, New Jersey.
In his acceptance speech, Justin said: “First and foremost I wanna thank all of my Beliebers in the audience tonight. Second of all I wanna thank all my Beliebers at home. I want to thank my mum for always believing in me."
He then thanked his dancers and band before launching into a rendition of the hit track – you can check it out in the video below!
