The best-selling album of 2012 held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 200 for two consecutive weeks, and currently sits at No. 1 on the Country Albums chart for the fourth week since its March 26 debut.
RIAA platinum certification is based on shipments of one million units. Richie’s actual sales total 680k.
With Tuskegee, Richie joins Ray Charles as the only artists in history to have No. 1 albums on both the Billboard Country Albums and R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts.
“Just when I think it couldn’t get any bigger, Tuskegee reaches a new level of success,” said Richie. “It is truly living up to the vision we had when we created it.”
The album features duets of 13 of his hits with Jason Aldean, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney, Billy Currington, Little Big Town, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson, Jennifer Nettles, Rascal Flatts, Kenny Rogers, Darius Rucker, Blake Shelton and Shania Twain.
