Eminem has made history by becoming the first artist to have two singles reach the 10-million-sold threshold. In doing so, he's earned two Digital Single Diamond Awards from the Recording Industry Association of America.

On Tuesday, Slim Shady's "Not Afraid" hit the coveted Diamond status, with 10 million in song sales and streams. The track joins Em's eleven-times-platinum-selling song, "Love the Way You Lie" featuring Rihanna .

The rapper also holds two ten-times-platinum, Diamond certified albums: 2000's The Marshall Mathers LP and 2002's The Eminem Show .

"We are delighted to recognize Eminem as the first artist to earn two RIAA Digital Diamond Awards," said Cary Sherman , the RIAA's chairman & CEO.  "This singular achievement -- earning a Diamond Award on two separate digital songs -- is unparalleled, and we congratulate him on forever etching a mark in Gold & Platinum Program history."

To date, Eminem has sold more than 37 million albums and 31 million singles in the United States, according to the RIAA.

Fans can expect the rapper to kick off his "Monster Tour" with Rhianna in Los Angeles on August 7.
