One of our goals at the RIAA is to provide timely and accurate information on the issues affecting the music labels and the creative artists we represent that are of interest to the public and the media.
In April, RIAA certified 74 Digital Single Awards and 11 Album Awards. See Gold & Platinum’s month-end award highlights below. A full, detailed award list is also attached and online at www.facebook.com/GoldandPlatinum.
The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is the trade organization that supports and promotes the creative and financial vitality of the major music companies. Its members comprise the most vibrant record industry in the world. RIAA® members create, manufacture and/or distribute approximately 85% of all legitimate recorded music produced and sold in the United States.
In support of this mission, the RIAA works to protect the intellectual property and First Amendment rights of artists and music labels; conduct consumer, industry and technical research; and monitor and review state and federal laws, regulations and policies. The RIAA® also certifies Gold®, Platinum®, Multi-Platinum™ and Diamond sales awards as well as Los Premios De Oro y Platino™, an award celebrating Latin music sales.
