Lopez, O-Town collect Platinum, Gold
By PAUL CANTIN


Jennifer Lopez and O-Town may have just arrived in record stores with new albums, but they're already due to pick up some gold and platinum.

The Canadian Recording Industry Association's reports of January sales certifications includes a platinum award for Lopez's "J.Lo," which just entered the Canadian album chart at #1 this week, signifying shipments of 100,000 copies to retailers.

O-Town's self-titled debut, meanwhile, earned a gold record, for shipping 50,000 copies to record stores.

The month's highest Canadian certification went to *NSync's "No Strings Attached," which earned a seven-times-platinum award (700,000 shipped), followed by Creed's six-times platinum "Human Clay" (600,000).

Five-times platinum prizes go to Lou Bega's "A Little Bit Of Mambo" and Lopez's debut effort, "On The 6," for shipments of 500,000 each. Sade's "Lovers Rock," Our Lady Peace's "Spiritual Machines and R.Kelly's "T.P.2.com" joined "J.Lo" in the 100,000 shipment platinum club.

Joining O-Town in the gold record category for 50,000 copies shipped are Daniel Boucher for "Dix Mille Matins," Prozzak's "Saturday People," Mark Knopfler's "Sailing To Philadelphia," the "Mama Mia" soundtrack, Erykah Badu's "Mama's Gun," the Irish Tenor's self-titled album, Barry White's "Ultimate Collection," Snoop Dogg's "The Last Meal," Mya's "Fear Of Flying," Nickelback's "The State," Vertical Horizon's "Everything You Want," Richard Abel's "Inspiration Classique" and Aaron's Party's self-titled album.

Meanwhile, in the U.S., AC/DC's 14-album catalogue has been certified as selling a combined 63 million albums, according to the Recording Industry Association Of America.

The Hollywood Reporter said the Australian metal band's 1980 opus "Back In Black has sold 19 million copies, making it hte sixth highest-certified album in U.S. music history, and makes AC/DC the fifth highest-selling band, behind The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and The Eagles.

Other U.S. certifications include the now retired Garth Brooks for 14 million copies of his "Double Live," making it the biggest-selling live album ever.

Jazz giant John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme" has, 25 years after its release, reached gold status -- the first time that benchmark has been reached by Coltrane, considered one of the giants of modern music.
