Nicki Minaj is celebrating the success of her single “Super Bass,” which was recently certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America. On Tuesday (Nov. 9), the “Did It On ‘Em” emcee announced the news on social media while thanking those, including her fans, record labels Young Money/Cash Money & Republic, songwriter Ester Dean and producer Kane Beatz, for their role in bringing the song to life.

“#SuperBassDiamond. Thank you for over a decade of support. #Barbz (special thx to Ester Dean, Kane, Juice, Taylor Swift, Sofia Grace & Rosie, Ellen, Young Money/Cash Money & Republic),” she penned alongside a video of her diamond plaque.

“This one was released b4 the streaming era, so millions of fans actually purchased the song. I’m so grateful for you guys. Sending love & blessings your way.”

Nicki now joins Drake, Eminem, Kanye West, Travis Scott, Fetty Wap, the late XXXTENTACION and Cardi B as the latest rapper to score a diamond song, per chart data. The accomplishment is also a history-making moment as she is now the second woman rapper to achieve this feat.

While Nicki Minaj is proud of her diamond record, she is no stranger to RIAA certifications. Her albums Pink FridayPink Friday: Roman ReloadedThe Pinkprint and Queen have been certified platinum at least once. The star has also earned a slew of award-winning and chart-topping singles throughout her career, all of which are worthy of recognition. In fact, “Whole Lotta Money” collaborator BIA thinks the Queens native deserves the same respect as JAY-Z.

“I always say to people, when you speak of Nicki, you got to speak on her like how you speak on JAY-Z and the greats that laid out the foundation for the people that’s after them,” BIA said. “She broke amazing records, and she’s made it easier for people like me to come through and do what we do. I’m always going to give her that credit and that respect because she helped me hit another milestone in my career.”
