The certification recognizes 2 million certified units, including sales and streams, for the summery disco-pop song released in May.

The awards range from gold certification (500,000 units) to platinum (1 million units), multi-platinum (over 2 million units) and diamond (10 million units).

"Butter" is the septet's second single to earn double platinum after "Dynamite" in March.

"Butter" holds the record for the most weeks -- 10 weeks -- at No. 1 on Billboard's main singles chart, the Hot 100, this year.
