The Weeknd is definitely one of the most established singers in the modern music industry. This is largely due to the themes shown in his albums, notably his After Hours album. The singer also accomplished a huge thing recently.
The Weeknd has already accomplished enough in a short time in order to be considered one of the all-time greats. He has been regularly discussed among pop music’s greatest icons. His After Hours album featured Blinding Lights, which is for many, the best song on the album.
According to Uproxx, The Weeknd now has the second most Diamond singles thanks to his two newest certifications from the Recording Industry Association Of America.
The Weeknd earned his 2nd and 3rd Diamond certifications from the RIAA for his 2016 hit “Starboy” and 2020 hit “Blinding Lights.” This is certainly no surprise considering how great the singer is.
With his new Diamond certification, The Weeknd is only behind Bruno Mars, who has four Diamond singles. He is tied for second with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Eminem, Imagine Dragons, and Maroon 5, who all have 3 diamonds. It is likely he will surpass Bruno Mars eventually as well.
