Bruno Mars is known to like the finer things in life — “gold jewelry,” “strawberry champagne,” and Versace — and the mutli-Grammy winning pop prince is still thriving on the successes of his 2016 album 24K Magic.

It’s been confirmed to Billboard that Bruno Mars’ record 24K Magic has now been certified 2x platinum by the RIAA, with both his singles “24K Magic” and “That’s What I Like” also earning 4x platinum certifications. Both the album and the two singles share the certification date of Thursday, July 27.

As previously reported, 24K Magic reached the one million sales mark in the U.S. during the week of July 20, making it Mars’ third million-selling record. His funk- and R&B fused-record has been on the Billboard 200 for 35 weeks, with the title track and “That’s What I Like” lingering on the Billboard Hot 100 for 41 weeks and 27 weeks, respectively.

24K Magic marks Mars’ third straight multi-platinum LP. Debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans is certified 5x platinum by the RIAA, and his sophomore record Unorthodox Jukebox is certified 4x platinum.
