Post Malone and Swae Lee have made history as their 2018 blockbuster hit, “Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse),” becomes the first-ever RIAA Double-Diamond single.

The song’s double-diamond status means it is now 20x platinum with more than 20 million streams or downloads.

Released in 2018, “Sunflower” peaked atop the Billboard Hot 100 just over two months after it first debuted on the chart. It was Malone’s third and Swae’s first No. 1 song.

In November 2022, “Sunflower” surpassed Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus‘ “Old Town Road” as the highest certified single in RIAA history, at the time 17x platinum.

“Post Malone and Swae Lee have officially raised the bar on what creative partnerships and infectious collaborations have the power to accomplish. ‘Sunflower (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse)’ has now been streamed or downloaded more than 20 million times in the U.S. alone, and they’ve earned the custom hardware to prove it. Congratulations Post, Swae Lee and Mercury/Republic Records for making history with the very first 2x Diamond single!” said RIAA Chairman & CEO Mitch Glazier.

Meanwhile, Malone performed “America the Beautiful” ahead of Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, February 11th.
