Cardi B is now the first female rapper to have two diamond-certified records, the Recording Industry Association of America announced on Monday (Nov. 29). According to the organization; “Girls Like You,” the Bronx native’s 2018 collaboration with Maroon 5, sold over 10 million units in the U.S. market this week, earning the impressive status.
“I’m forever grateful,” she added, retweeting fans’ congratulatory messages.
As reported by REVOLT, Cardi clenched her first diamond certification earlier this year for her 2017 single, “Bodak Yellow.” According to Chart Data, Cardi is not only the first female rapper to earn two diamond singles, she’s also the third woman ever to achieve the feat. The two women that also have multiple diamond records are Lady Gaga, who has two diamond singles; and Katy Perry, who has three.
Earlier this year, it was reported that Bruno Mars became the most-diamond-certified artist ever with five records.
Besides the RIAA achievement, Cardi is also up for Best Rap Performance at the 2022 Grammy Awards for her single, “Up.” The February track was the most-streamed solo female rap song on the Apple Music Global chart this past year.
Earlier this month, Cardi also lent Halle Berry a hand in executive producing the soundtrack for Bruised. The rap star recorded “Bet It” for the soundtrack, which also included music by Saweetie, City Girls, Rapsody, Erica Banks, Latto, H.E.R., Flo Milli and more.
In an interview about the film, which also marked Berry’s directorial debut, the 55-year-old star said she connected with Cardi.
