Justin Bieber: King Of The Charts

As the year comes to a close, it is time for the Recording Industry Association of America to announce its album and single certification awards.  It was a dismal year for the recording industry, with overall album sales down 13 percent.  But a few of our favorite stars were still able to do well in 2010.

Justin Bieber topped the list, earning the double-platinum plaque by selling over 2 million copies of My World. The Glee Volume 1 soundtrack also earned a platinum title.

Also worth mentioning is French pop act Phoenix, earning a gold plaque for their album Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which sold over 500,000 copies.  Ke$ha's debut album, Animal, contained four hit singles, including the double-platinum song Tik Tok.
