Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood” Goes 2X Platinum in the US

Taylor Swift has released four singles in support of her album “1989.”

As of July, all four have earned a multi-platinum certification under the RIAA’s digital singles program.

The latest to join the club is “Bad Blood,” which formally reached the 2X platinum mark on July 1, 2015.

The distinction confirms that “Bad Blood” has shifted at least two million units in the United States. A unit is equivalent to one paid download or one hundred streams.

Previous “1989” singles “Shake it Off,” “Blank Space” and “Style” have been certified 7x platinum, 6x platinum and 2x platinum, respectively.

Album tracks “Wildest Dreams,” “Welcome to New York” and “Out of the Woods” all possess gold distinctions (500,000 units).
