The album has been certified 6-times platinum by the RIAA. His follow-up album, 8701, produced the Billboard Hot 100 number one hits "U Remind Me" and "U Got It Bad". The album has been certified 4-times platinum by the RIAA. Usher's 2004 album Confessions sold over 10 million copies in the United States, and has been certified diamond by the RIAA.
