Post Malone Makes History With Eight Diamond-Certified Songs
Achieving Diamond status is a remarkable feat in the music industry. It requires a track to sell more than 10 million RIAA units. Post Malone has done that not once, not twice, but an astounding eight times! He’s the only artist in history to collect over six Diamond Single Awards.
On April 20, the Recording Industry Association of America officially certified three more of Post Malone’s singles, “Circles,” “Better Now,” and “I Fall Apart,” as Diamond singles. This is in addition to the previous five tracks that crossed the 10 million mark, “Sunflower,” “Congratulations,” “White Iverson,” “Psycho,” and “Rockstar.”
In fact, “Sunflower” with Swae Lee is the highest-certified song of all time, achieving 17x-Platinum certification in November 2022. Another track, “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus, also reached 17x-Platinum later that same month.
Previously, Bruno Mars held the record for the most Diamond singles with six, but Post Malone has now shattered that record. Drake and The Weeknd both have five Diamond-certified songs.
To celebrate his record-breaking accomplishment, Post Malone dropped The Diamond Collection compilation on April 21. This nine-track project includes all eight of his Diamond singles as well as a new track called “Chemical.” It’s a fitting tribute to the rapper/singer’s incredible achievements.
Post Malone is no one-hit-wonder either. He has multi-Platinum albums in his discography, with 2016’s Stoney (5x-Platinum), 2018’s Beerbongs & Bentleys (5x-Platinum), and 2019’s Hollywood’s Bleeding (4x-Platinum) each moving more than four million units.
Both Beerbongs & Bentleys and Hollywood’s Bleeding hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. In addition, Malone has scored four Number Ones on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, with “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage remaining in the Hot 100’s top position for eight weeks.
Post Malone’s incredible achievements speak for themselves. With eight Diamond-certified songs, he has truly cemented his place in music history.
