According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for a single to be Platinum certified, the song must have sold at least one million units. The award counts both downloads and on-demand music streams. On-demand audio and/or video song streams are counted towards the thresholds required for certification at the formula of 150 on-demand streams being equivalent to one download sale.
