Kanye West’s ‘Stronger’ Achieves Diamond Certification

It's Throwback Thursday and Kanye is still winning!


Kanye West can genuinely say, “diamonds are forever.”

His smash hit “Stronger” has just hit Diamond status, which means the song can boast of having over 10 million copies sold.

The track was featured on Kanye’s 2007 Graduation album.

According to SONGFACTS.COM

“Stronger” is based on Daft Punk’s song “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger,” which peaked at #25 in the UK in 2001. The duo from Daft Punk cooperated with Kanye West in allowing him to place his rapped lyrics over their electronic pop rhythm and were delighted when they heard the final version.

Kanye West worked with eight engineers around the world, recording over fifty different versions before he felt he’d got what he wanted for this song.

According to the fitness center chain Gold’s Gym, this is the best song to work out to. In a 2011 nationwide poll of its customers, West’s track came out top, beating out the Rocky theme song as the #1 tune for sweating it out in the gym.
