If you’re not a “Believer” in Imagine Dragons, then it might be time to check the scoreboard.

Dan Reynolds and company have now earned a historic third RIAA Diamond-certified single, which is awarded to songs with more than 10 million certified units. The group’s Night Visions single “Demons” is the latest ID song to join the club, following the previously Diamond-plated “Radioactive” and “Believer.”

According to the Twitter account @ChartData, which keeps tabs on these kinds of things, Imagine Dragons is the first group in the history of the RIAA to notch three Diamond-certified singles.

By the way, that record might be growing soon, as ID’s 2017 single “Thunder” is currently at nine-times platinum.

Meanwhile, Imagine Dragons is set to release a new album called Mercury — Act 1 this Friday. It includes the previously released singles “Follow You,” “Wrecked” and “Cutthroat.”
