NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 11, 2005 -- Lenny Kravitz and Virgin Records are pleased to announce that his multi-format hit single "Lady" has just been certified platinum as download by the Recording Industry Association of America, with over 200,000 downloads to date. The single comes off of Kravitz's 7th studio album, "BAPTISM."

Currently out on an exclusive 27 date theater tour, Kravitz has garnered rave reviews for his intimate one-night-only shows throughout North America.

The Charlotte Observer described his performance as "show-stopping"; the Boston Herald proclaimed "the crowd's love (for Kravitz) was well deserved... and earned. "Fly Away," "Again" and "Always on the Run" were darn near magical," and The Fort Worth Star-Telegram described the show as "intensely charismatic." The US leg of his world tour follows the rocker's historic tour of South America, which was one of the most extensive tours of the region by an international artist ever. Kravitz will head to Europe after his US run. Dates include rarely toured markets such as Poland, Estonia, Russia and Finland in addition to France, Spain, England and Italy.

Throughout his career, Lenny Kravitz has achieved tremendous critical acclaim and commercial success with a succession of groundbreaking album releases.
