Cardi B Makes History as First Female Rapper With Multiple Diamond Tracks

Cardi B has made history as the first female rapper to receive diamond certification on multiple songs.

On Monday, the top-charting rapper’s 2018 collaborative single with Maroon 5, “Girls Like You,” reached 10 million sales in the United States, reaching the required milestone for diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America, according to Chart Data.

The 29-year-old Bronx rapper first received diamond certification in March of this year when her 2017 track “Bodak Yellow” surpassed 10 million sales.

“Wow I got two Diamond records!” Cardi wrote on Twitter. “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.”

Outside of rap, Cardi is only the third female artist in history to receive multiple diamond certifications, joining the ranks alongside Katy Perry, who has received three, and Lady Gaga, who has also received two.

Cardi is also up for a Grammy at the 2022 awards ceremony in January for her solo track “Up” in the category of Best Rap Performance. The track is nominated for the award alongside Drake’s “Way 2 Sexy,” J. Cole’s “My Life,” Megan Thee Stallion’s “Thot Shit” and Baby Keem’s “Family Ties.”
