Post Malone Breaks the Record as the Artist with the Most RIAA Diamond-Certified Singles

Surpassing Bruno Mars.

Post Malone is making history. The rapper-slash-singer has now become the artist with the most RIAA Diamond-certified singles.

Thanks to “Circles,” “Better Now,” and “I Fall Apart” he now has eight RIAA Diamond-certified singles, which means each of those tracks has accumulated 10 million certified units. As a result, he’s officially surpassed Bruno Mars, who has six RIAA Diamond-certified singles.

Despite his success, Post Malone has been quite open about his struggles in his music career. “It’s so hard,” he previously told Billboard. “You lose a lot of the artist nowadays because a lot of people have so many genius ideas, but you lose a lot of that through everything that might happen with the business side — and you lose a little bit of yourself. Every time you change your art and your way of thinking for someone else’s, that takes a little piece of yourself off every time. I feel like I’m trying to rebuild.”

Check out the eight tracks in The Diamond Collection below.
