Singers, Post Malone and Swae Lee have made history together, as their joint single “Sunflower” has become the highest charting RIAA-certified single in history.
“Sunflower,” which was created as part of the Spider-Man: Into The Spiderverse soundtrack in 2018, was certified 17x platinum on Monday (November 14), and surpassed Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus’ “Old Town Road” remix, which previously held the record at 15x platinum.
“Sunflower,” which was also included on Post Malone’s third solo record Hollywood’s Bleeding, was previously nominated for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards.
The plaque was among 14 other plaques Post Malone himself received on Monday. Among those accolades, “Congratulations” and “Pyscho” were certified 14x-platinum and 10x-platinum respectively, and his debut single “White Iverson” was certified 10x-platinum as well. “Circles,” “Wow” and “Go Flex” were also certified 9x-platinum, 8x-platinum and 6x-platinum, respectively.
