Why are some albums that are far from being platinum is platinum?

For example, "Loose" by nelly furtado is certified gold with 900,000+ copies sold, and Danity Kane is certified platinum with 750,000+ copies sold.

KEY:

Gold=500,000+ copies sold

Platinum=1,000,000+ copies sold

2x platinum=2,000,000+= copies sold and so on such as 3x platinum, 4x platinum, etc.

Diamond=10,000,000+ copies sold

    Anybody can have an album out these days (think Hulk Hogan's daughter). So, now, anybody can be "platinum" even if they've only sold a few. Real music lost its meaning.

    I so agree with that!

    But people like Nelly or DK still have a chance to get platinum. Just need more hits.
