Cardi B becomes first female rapper to have two Diamond certified songs

Multi award-winning American rapper, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar professionally known as Cardi B has reached yet another major milestone.

She becomes the first female rapper in history to have two RIAA diamond-certified songs.

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) award certifications are based on the number of albums and single sales. When a song or album is certified Diamond it means it has 10,000,000 sales and counting.

Before this achievement, Cardi was the first female rapper to have a Diamond certification.

Her massively successful hit single ”Bodak Yellow” gave her the honor. Shortly after, Nicki Minaj’s Super Bass was the second single by a female rapper to be diamond certified but it took about ten years to reach the prestigious honor.

Cardi B however, shares the second certification honor with Maroon 5 for “Girls Like You”, which topped the Billboard Hot 100, where it spent seven weeks.

Reacting to the good news, the mother of two wrote;

”Wow I got two Diamond records! Thank you sooo much @maroon5 for including me on this song and this is the song I cater to my daughter every time I perform it.I’m forever grateful”
