5:07 PM PT – only me Tells TMZ Hip HopThank you to all the fans! You made history with us! And for Post and Miles Morales, we’re thrilled the music is getting the attention and love it deserves. There’s more to come! SREMMLIFE!”
Post MaloneThe week got off to a great start… As of Monday morning, “Sunflower” – his 2018 collaboration with Swae Lee – is now 17 times platinum, and is the most officially certified in record history!!!
TMZ Hip Hop Meet Posty in Los Angeles, where the “Twelve Carat Toothache” star was touched by the RIAA announcement, and all the fan support. His immediate reaction was to shout out Swae Lee as the secret sauce behind their blockbuster record.
According to Post, Swae was hugely effective at arranging the tunes – doing the “heavy lifting,” as he put it.
Originally released as part of the soundtrack to “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,” the end result was one of the most favorite harmonic duets ever recorded.
Post says that throughout his experiences, he’s seen “sunflowers” bring sad people and make happy people happier. The song has been ranked #1 in many countries and has garnered nearly two billion views on YouTube so far.
“Sunflower” is also Post and Swae’s second diamond certification after “Congratulations” and “Unforgettable” respectively… and it wouldn’t be the last if they had any say in it.
Post tells us that he and Swae have been cooking, and at least one recipe should be finished soon.
It’s a garden too big to fill in… but yes, we’re going to take a whole field of “sunflowers” ASAP!!!
