American singer and songwriter Cardi B has continued to show why she’s ranked among the best to have graced the music industry as her major-label debut single “Bodak Yellow” gets certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America.
The New York native is the first female rapper to achieve a diamond single award, according to the RIAA, meaning “Bodak Yellow” has moved 10 million units.
According to the RIAA, one equivalent song unit is equal to a single digital song sale, or 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams.
Cardi reached the milestone on Monday, and her hit collaboration “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, is halfway there with its 5x multi-platinum status as of March 3, according to the RIAA website.
