Marshall Mathers deserves some applause. The speed-spitting MC just made history as the first artist to ever receive two RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards. That means that Eminem accomplished 10 million sales and streams. His first diamond-certified single was his song “Love the Way You Lie” with pop princess Rihanna, but it was his 2010 song “Not Afraid” that just tipped him over the 10 million mark.

RIAA Chairman & CEO Cary Sherman had a few things to say about the record-breaking milestone. “We are delighted to recognize Eminem as the first artist to earn two RISS Digital Diamond Awards,” he said. “This singular achievement — earning a Diamond Award on two separate digital songs — is unparalleled, and we congratulate him on forever etching a mark in Gold & Platinum Program history.”

Congrats, Em!
