Kanye West's "All Of The Lights" also tops the 1 million mark in digital sales
It didn't go platinum. It says it sold over 1 million in digital sales, which can all most likely not be counted as US sales. Even if it was 1 million sales in the US it has to be certified before it's platinum. The sales do not automatically equal anything.

:facepalm:

It's US sales, and it's not 'certified' platinum yet, but it is platinum, anything selling over 1 million units = platinum.

The paragraph discusses international sales:

Song Scorecard: "Written In The Stars" by Tinie Tempah featuring Eric Turner tops the 1 million mark in digital sales this week. The song hit #1 in the U.K. in September and reached #12 in the U.S. two weeks ago...Kanye West's "All Of The Lights" also tops the 1 million mark in digital sales. The song hit #18 on the Hot 100 two weeks ago.

Untrue!
There are 6x platinum albums that have sold over 10 million. Certifications cost money...

Yes because that song was a hit in the UK prior to hitting the US, that's all they're mentioning, yahoo is an American source and is reflective of American charts entirely. It's not even up for discussion lol
