Shoutout to Cardi B for becoming the first female MC to achieve RIAA diamond status for two singles, the first being the unforgettable “Bodak Yellow”.
Adding to her brazy list of historic accomplishments, The Recording Industry Association of America announced on Monday that Cardi’s song with Maroon 5, “Girls Like You” had sold over 10 million units in the United States this week.
Of course Cardi had to hit the Twitter timeline to thank Maroon 5, and make a cute connection to her baby girl;
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 🥲

Cardi is the first female rapper to receive the honor and she’s the third female to ever reach multi-diamond status with “Bodak Yellow” reaching diamond status earlier this year. Cardi joins Lady Gaga who also has two diamond records and Katy Perry with three.
Which one of Cardi’s diamond records are you spinning? “Girls Like You” or “Bodak Yellow” or both?
