American Rapper, Post Malone Becomes Youngest Artist to Earn Three Diamond Singles

Post Malone has become the first and only artist in history to have earned three diamond singles. Malone’s most recent chart success follows the release of his 2019 production Hollywood’s Bleeding.

The 25-year-old artist’s record-breaking streak means that three of his biggest songs have now sold more than ten million copies, according to the Music Industry Association of America.

With his hit singles “Congratulations,” featuring Quavo, “Sunflower,” featuring Swae Lee, and “Rockstar,” featuring 21 Savage, the singer became the youngest artist in history to earn three diamond certifications at the same time, at the age of 25.

Besides this, “Rockstar” has surpassed two billion Spotify streams. The song has gone viral on Tik Tok and has been recreated in tens of thousands of videos by fans.

He is also one of only two artists to have seven or more songs that have been downloaded one billion times or more. This has only been actually achieved by Justin Bieber.
