Post Malone & Swae Lee’s ‘Sunflower’ Becomes Highest Certified Single in History
The song, which ruled charts and airwaves upon release, has been certified 17x platinum in the US by the RIAA. With this, it has become the highest-certified single in history in the U.S. In September last year, Lil Nas X & Billy Ray Cyrus’ ‘Old Town Road’ remix became the highest-certified song by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) at 15x platinum.
‘Sunflower’ was released as a single from the soundtrack to the 2018 hit film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, and was also included on Post Malone’s third studio album Hollywood’s Bleeding (2019).
‘Sunflower’ was nominated for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards. A proper music video was never released for the catchy song — instead, an in-studio video was put out which has done close to 2 billion views on YouTube.
