Recording Industry Association of America certifies single diamond
Travis Scott’s history-making anthem “Sicko Mode” has just reached diamond status as certified by the RIAA. This marks the very first diamond single for the six-time GRAMMY Award-nominated artist, designer, style icon, ASTROWORLD Festival curator, and Cactus Jack record label founder. The song has eclipsed 1.2 billion Spotify streams and 735 million YouTube views on the music video thus far.
“Sicko Mode” first appeared on his blockbuster 2018 third album, ASTROWORLD. Billboard crowned it one of the “Songs That Defined the Decade,” and it notably made history as “the first hip hop track to spend at least 30 weeks in the Top 10 of the Hot 100.” Not to mention, it picked up a pair of GRAMMY Award nominations for both “Best Rap Performance” and “Best Rap Song” in 2019.
In October, Scott broken a record with his hit “Franchise” as his latest single, featuring Young Thug and M.I.A., debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It is Scott’s third No. 1 debut on the Hot 100 in the past year, making him the first-ever artist to debut three consecutive songs No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 within a year period.
