Cardi B just made history as the first female rapper to earn three diamond singles.

On Monday (Dec. 13), the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) announced that “I Like It,” Cardi’s collaboration with J Balvin and Bad Bunny, moved 10 million units in the United States. Following the historic news, the Bronx emcee took to Instagram to celebrate the news.

“Wow I’m sooo happy!” she captioned the post. “My album came out in 2018 and it’s still breaking records. I have a solo [diamond emoji] record, a feature [diamond emoji] record and now ANOTHER [diamond emoji] record from a collab with 2 people that I look up to and love so much, @jbalvin & @badbunny! I remember like it was yesterday when this song went #1 and now it’s Diamond. I honestly just can’t believe this is happening! I’m so proud to have two songs off my debut album go Diamond. I hope I can achieve the same or even better on my next one. Thank you everyone that has supported and loved this record.”

As REVOLT previously reported, earlier this year, Cardi became the first female rapper to obtain a diamond single. Her 2017 breakout hit “Bodak Yellow” sold 10 million units in the country. In November, the Invasion of Privacy spitter earned a second diamond single when “Girls Like You,” her 2018 collaboration with Maroon 5, sold over 10 million units.

“Wow I got two Diamond records!” Cardi celebrated on Twitter at the time. “Thank you sooo much [Maroon 5] for including me on this song and this is the song I cater to my daughter every time I perform it.”

Congrats Cardi! Check out her post below.
