With this achievement, The Weeknd joins Post Malone, who holds nine diamond singles, and Rihanna, who also has seven. Diamond certification denotes that an artist has sold at least 10 million equivalent units of a single, a testament to The Weeknd’s widespread appeal and enduring popularity.

Known for his distinctive voice and innovative sound, The Weeknd has consistently pushed the boundaries of contemporary music. His hits, such as “Blinding Lights,” “Starboy,” and “Can’t Feel My Face,” have dominated charts and become anthems for a generation.
