Post Malone and 21 Savage’s “Rockstar” is embarking on a month at the top, after notching a fourth consecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The smash record is the longest running hip-hop song to top the charts since Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles.” According to the RIAA, “Rockstar” is now certified platinum, which means 1 million equivalent album units have been earned in the U.S.
One equivalent album unit is equal to: one album sale, 10 tracks sold from an album, or 1,500 on-demand audio and/or video streams from an album.
Republic Records re-uploaded the full version of the track to YouTube after backlash from fans, as the official audio initially only contained the hook to the song and no verses in an effort to deceitfully boost plays. However, comments are still disabled for the video.
