Today, the BPI's website was updated with its latest certifications (dated 08 August) and among the titles was the 2010 'Original Soundtrack - Burlesque' with a Silver certification. The album features tracks by Grammy Award-winning songstress' Cher and Christina Aguilera - including the former's Golden Globe Award-winning 'You Haven't Seen The Last Of Me'.
It, of course, served as the soundtrack album to the female entertainers' 2010 film 'Burlesque'. Both of the album's tracks by Cher - the aforementioned ballad and 'Welcome To Burlesque' are featured on Cher's current North American 'Dressed To Kill Tour'.
The album, which reached #18 in the US and was certified Gold there, was a moderate success on the UK's Official Compilations Chart - reaching #27 and spending 9 weeks within the Top 40. However, its fresh certification means that it has sold or shipped 60,000 copies across the country.
In total, the soundtrack album has sold over one-million copies worldwide.
Just last week, Cher's 1998 single 'Believe' became BPI's first ever Triple-Platinum female single.
