We Are The World was released on March 7, 1985 in both a 7″ and 12″ format, and made music history. It reached the top of the sales charts within a month, half the average time it usually takes for a single to do so. The song created recording history by becoming the industry’s first ever Multi-Platinum single! and being certified in all categories (Gold, Platinum, Multi-Platinum) within the space of one month.
