Cardi B makes history again, becoming first female rapper with two RIAA-certified 11x Platinum hits

Cardi B has made history, yet again.

On Tuesday, it was officially announced that the Grammy-winning artist has become the first female rapper with two Recording Industry Association of America-certified 11-times Platinum hits. The record beats her previous one of becoming the first female rapper to have a song reach RIAA Diamond status.

The new accolade comes thanks to Cardi’s breakthrough hit “Bodak Yellow” and the Bad Bunny and J Balvin-assisted “I Like It.” Each track boasts billions of global streams and over a billion music video videos.

To top it off, the certifications come on Cardi’s 30th birthday, giving her an extra reason to celebrate.

Previously, Cardi made history when “Bodak Yellow” was 10-times-certified Platinum and again when every song on her debut album, Invasion of Privacy, was certified at least Platinum by the RIAA.

(A previous version of this story published on 10/12/22 incorrectly stated the RIAA Platinum certification level of Cardi B’s two hits. The headline above has been updated accordingly.)
