10. RIAA certification – Other countries have similar awards. Certification is not automatic; for an award to be made, the record label must request certification.

Presently, an RIAA-certified record is a single or album that has sold 500,000 units. In 1975, the additional requirement of 500,000 units sold was added for Gold albums. Reflecting growth in record sales, the award was added for albums selling one million units, singles selling two million units. The Multi-Platinum award was introduced in 1984, signifying multiple Platinum levels of albums and singles. In 1989, the sales thresholds for singles were reduced to 500,000 for Gold and 1,000,000 for Platinum, reflecting a decrease in sales of singles. In 1992, RIAA began counting each disc in a multi-disc set as one unit toward certification. Reflecting additional growth in music sales, the Diamond award was instituted for albums or singles selling million units. Because of these changes in criteria, the sales level associated with a particular award depends on when the award was made. Nielsen SoundScan figures are not used in RIAA certification; the RIAA system includes outlets Nielsen misses. This system has allowed, for record labels to promote an album as Platinum simply based on large shipments. For instance, in 1978 the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band soundtrack shipped platinum but was a sales bust, with two million returns.RIAA certification – A platinum award for the album GHV2 of Madonna.

24. Pop music – The terms "popular music" and "music" are often used interchangeably, although the former describes all music, popular and includes many styles. "Pop" and "rock" were synonymous terms until the late 1960s, when they were increasingly used from each other. Although music is seen as just the singles charts, it is not the sum of all chart music. Identifying factors hooks. Stephen Millward define pop music as "a body of music, distinguishable from popular, jazz, folk musics". According to Pete Seeger, music is "professional music which draws upon both folk music and fine arts music". Although music is seen as just the singles charts, it is not the sum of all music. The music charts contain songs including classical, jazz, rock, novelty songs. Music, as a genre, is seen as existing and developing separately. Thus "music" may be used to describe a distinct genre, aimed at a youth market, often characterized as a softer alternative to rock and roll. Musicologist Allan Moore surmises that the term "music" itself may have originated from Pop art. Additionally, it's important to note that music is always evolving, which means that the definition of pop music can change, too. It's also important to be cognizant of the distinction between popular music. The term "song" was first recorded as being used in 1926, in the sense of a piece of music "having popular appeal". However, the term was in use at least ten years earlier.Pop music – The Oxford Dictionary of Music states that the term "pop" refers to music performed by such artists as the Rolling Stones (pictured here in a 2006 performance)
