The Weeknd is now one of the most decorated artistes ever, according to hotnewhiphop.com.
The platform reports that The Weeknd now has the second most Diamond singles thanks to his two newest certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
The “Earned It” singer earned his 2nd and 3rd Diamond certifications from the RIAA for his 2016 hit “Starboy” and 2020 hit “Blinding Lights.” This comes as no surprise, as “Blinding Lights” was dubbed Billboard’s No.1 Song of All Time last November after its chart success exceeded that of any other song.
The standout track to the singer’s 2020 album After Hours was awarded this title, which Billboard explained as “A designation that factors in total weeks on the chart as well as exact chart positions, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at No. 100 earning the least.”
