'Mi Reflejo' goes gold

Christina Aguilera's Spanish-language collection 'Mi Reflejo' (BMG U.S. Latin), has earned gold status (500,000 U.S. copies shipped).

Also under the RIAA's Los Premios de Oro y Platino program, 'Mi Reflejo' has earned gold (100,000 U.S. copies shipped), platinum (200,000), and triple-platinum (600,000) honors.

BMG releases Christina's sales figures

On August 30, 2001, BMGchristina
released Christina's sales figures to date. She has now sold 23 million CDs and singles. This is a cumulative figure encompassing sales of: 'Christina Aguilera' (12 million), 'Mi Reflejo' (3 million), 'My Kind of Christmas' (3 million), and singles from all three albums (5 million).

Christina's actual sales figures exceed the numbers reported here since this cumulative figure does not include sales of soundtracks on which she has been featured, pop compilations, special releases such as the Sears singles, or collaborations such as 'Lady Marmalade,' 'Nobody Wants To Be Lonely,' and 'What's Going On.'

'Lady Marmalade' Makes History

'Lady Marmalade' is now the first airplay-only track in U.S. chart history to stay at #1 for more than one week (in America, 'Lady Marmalade' was only available on the 'Moulin Rouge' original soundtrack). Only two other tracks not domestically released as singles have ever reached #1 (Aaliyah's 'Try Again' from the 'Romeo Must Die' soundtrack and 'Angel' from Shaggy featuring Rayvon). In addition, 'Lady Marmalade's' outrageously colorful video ranked at the top in spins at MTV and was seen regularly on VH-1 and BET.
