The RIAA has finally, finally updated their searchable database of platinum and gold certifications. I'm not sure how long ago, exactly, but it can't be all that old. With it, there are a bunch of new (to me and, probably you) Bad Boy platinum and gold certifications.

First of all, you have to be in awe of "New Joc City". Regardless of what "Hustlenomics" is doing, bow to the great Yung Joc. I was already blown away by the success of the album, which I knew to be certified gold with a 2x platinum single in "It's Goin' Down". It doesn't stop there. "It's Goin' Down" was actually certified 3x platinum. On top of that, "I Know You See It" was certified platinum and "1st Time" was certified gold. Do you know how hard it is, these days, to have a gold album, with a 3x platinum single, a platinum single and a gold single? Let's just say, it's not something that happens everyday.

Cassie's "Me & U" was certified platinum. "Showstopper" by Danity Kane was certified gold. "Nasty Girl" by The Notorious B.I.G. was also certified gold. Finally, for some reason, "Big Poppa" is showing up as having been certified gold in late 2006. I'm not sure what that's about, except to speculate that, perhaps, "Big Poppa" is being measured as a single of it's own, separate from the "Big Poppa/Warning" single that has already been certified platinum.
