Whitney’s self-titled debut album, as well as the soundtrack for the film The Bodyguard in which she also starred, are the other two projects from the songstress which have achieved diamond status according to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

The news comes just days after the singer’s video for her track I Will Always Love you joined the billion views club on YouTube.
