My World 2.0 has shipped more than one million copies in the U.S. since March to earn the teen singing sensation his second Platinum album plaque in just four months! What a year for the YouTube discovered star whose first album My World (Island Records, 2009) went Platinum in January alongside his first single “One Time” (also Platinum).  Meanwhile Bieber’s “One Less Lonely Girl” and “Eenie Meenie” with Sean Kingston have both struck Gold for selling 500,000 digital downloads.  Learn more about Justin on his website and track other artist’s G&P rank at riaa.com/goldandplatinum.php
