It’s been over five years since Post Malone and Swae Lee dropped their viral hit “Sunflower”, and this song is still breaking records. The catchy bop from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse received RIAA’s double-diamond certification, becoming the first song in history to do so.

RIAA Chairman and CEO Mitch Glazier confirmed the news in an official statement, announcing that “Sunflower” is the first-ever double-diamond certified song after attracting 20 million streams and downloads in the U.S. alone.

“Post Malone and Swae Lee have officially raised the bar on what creative partnerships and infectious collaborations have the power to accomplish. Congratulations Post, Swae Lee, and Mercury/Republic Records for making history with the very first 2x Diamond single!” said Glazier in a statement.

Post Malone is no stranger to breaking RIAA’s certification records. Just last year, he made history as the artist with the most diamond singles ever with eighth, including “Sunflower”, plus “White Iverson,” “Congratulations” ft. Quavo, “I Fall Apart,” “Rockstar” ft. 21 Savage, “Psycho” ft. Ty Dolla $ign, “Better Now”, and “Circles”.

“Sunflower” was originally released in October 2018 as a part of the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack. It topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart and received a nod for the record of the year at the Grammy Awards.
