The lead single from Taylor Swift’s career-defining–and Grammy-winning–sophomore album has been certified as a 7x platinum digital single.

The Recording Industry Association of America, which runs the Gold and Platinum program, announced that “Love Story,” which kicked off the “Fearless” album cycle, earned that distinction in late August.

“Love Story” was one of many Swift tunes to achieve a new platinum or gold certification during the month of August.

“You Belong with Me,” which is also cut from the “Fearless” album, was crowned a 6x platinum digital single. “Fearless” single “Fifteen” earned a 2x platinum mark.

“Mean,” “Mine,” “Back to December” and “The Story of Us,” all cut from 2010’s “Speak Now,” earned 3x, 3x, 2x and 1x platinum certifications, respectively. “Enchanted,” which was also on that album but never released as an official single, went gold during the month of August.

“We are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” the lead single from Swift’s 2012 album “Red,” earned a 5x platinum mark. “Everything Has Changed,” the duet with Ed Sheeran that also appeared on that album, earned a 1x platinum certification.

“Our Song” and “Picture to Burn,” which were included on her 2006 self-titled debut, went 4x and 2x platinum, respectively.

Swift also received new distinctions for her soundtrack contributions “Safe & Sound” and “Crazier.” The former, which appeared on the soundtrack to “The Hunger Games,” went 2x platinum. The former, cut from the soundtrack to “Hannah Montana: The Movie,” received a single platinum mark.
