The Recording Industry Association of America tweeted its congratulations to Hill. “Welcome to the RIAA Diamond Club @MsLaurynHill! #TheMiseducationofLaurynHill is now a (10X) certified album!” the tweet read.
Hill’s debut album was an immediate commercial success, selling 422,624 copies in its first week and debuting at Number One in the US charts.
In the UK it peaked at Number Two, while the record has sold an estimated 20 million copies internationally.
Earlier this month (March 1) it was revealed that Lil Wayne has a new Young Money compilation on the way.
Wayne revealed that a compilation to highlight the artists on his roster is in the works. “We about to put the compilation together with all the artists together on one album,” he told Fox Sports Radio’s Up On Game podcast.
“That sets up everything for everybody so they could start coming out with their solo projects as well.”
