Ten Goes Diamond

Possibly thanks to those of you who heeded our tweet earlier this month, Billboard just announced that Ten has broken the 10 million U.S. sales mark, making it eligible for the RIAA's Diamond award.
This week, the 1991 Epic Records release surpasses the 10 million U.S. sales mark according to Nielsen SoundScan, making it the 22nd album to reach the threshold since the company began tracking data in 1991.

In the week ending Feb. 17, the album sold nearly 4,000 copies (up 159% over the previous week). That brings its total sales to about 1,000 over 10 million.
