Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” Reaches 9X Platinum

Uptown Funk (RCA)

Mark Ronson’s smash “Uptown Funk (featuring Bruno Mars),” which is thus far the best-selling single of 2015, appears poised to eventually earn a diamond distinction.

As of July 24, 2015, it was within a million digital units of that mark.

The RIAA confirms that “Uptown Funk” earned a 9X platinum certification on that date. A 9X certification confirms a US unit total of at least 9 million; one unit is equal to a paid download or 100 streams.

In addition to earning the 9X platinum certification, “Funk” also received retroactive distinctions for reaching the 6x, 7x and 8x platinum thresholds.
