The Weeknd continues his success on streaming platforms and on charts as the XO mogul has earned his fifth RIAA Diamond Certification.

He earned this accolade on the occasion of his 33rd birthday.

The song was nominated for Best Original Song at the 88th Academy Awards and won the Grammy Award for Best R&B Performance at the 58th Annual Grammy Awards.

This follows up his previous Diamond songs “The Hills”, “Can’t Feel My Face“, “Starboy” and “Blinding Lights”. The Weeknd’s “Beauty Behind The Madness” becomes the first album in history to earn three RIAA Diamond singles.

The Weeknd now becomes the fourth artist to have over four Diamonds, joining Bruno Mars (6), Post Malone (5) and Drake (5).
