The Weeknd is now the first-ever Black singer to count three individual diamond records.  “Blinding Lights”, “Starboy”, and “The Hills” are the three singles to get over the threshold.  According to Billboard, “diamond certification means a song moved 10 million units, with one equivalent song unit equal to a single digital song sale, or 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams.” He is also scheduled to replace Kanye West at Coachella making $8 million. Hear about this and more in the Hot Spot.
