Congratulations are in order for Lady Gaga, whose 2013 album ARTPOP has just been certified platinum in the United States. The news comes just days after Gaga's most recent release, Joanne, received the same award from the Recording Industry Association of America. This also now means that all of Mother Monster's solo albums are certified platinum (or higher) in her home country.
ARTPOP was released in November 2013 to mixed critic reviews, but was commercially successful, debuting at number one on the Billboard 200 with first-week sales of 258,000 copies. The album became Gaga's second consecutive number one in the United States and earned a nomination for Top Dance/Electronic Album at the Billboard Music Awards. ARTPOP spawned three singles, the Top 5 smash "Applause," "Do What U Want" (featuring Christina Aguilera), and "G.U.Y."
