For a song to receive a diamond certification, it has to move at least 10 million equivalent units, combining actual sales and equivalent units comprised of streams. There are only a little over 30 songs that have ever reached this status, including Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie,” Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” Justin Bieber and Ludacris’ “Baby” and more.
While Post is enjoying his new diamond status, the rapper has also enjoyed some other successes lately.
