Today her debut breakout hit “Bodak Yellow” was announced as officially gaining Diamond status in the United States. We know there are many more great things to come for the groundbreaking rapper. Cardi B can seem to do no wrong, musically at least. KEEP SHINING.”
It was just this past February that another rapper Lauryn Hill also made history when she became the first female rapper to earn a Diamond certification for her album “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” released back in 1998. So this is beyond an incredible feat for the Bronx rapper. With hardly any radio play cause of how nasty it was but babyeeee it was a shocker!”

Apart from the Diamond status attained by “Bodak Yellow” Cardi B also had her single “WAP” featuring Meghan Thee Stallion certified 5x Platinum. Since the release of the track back in 2018, which was off her “Invasion Of Privacy Album” the response has been overwhelming. This really made my day and really uplifted me for this crazy performance.” Already her friends in the music industry have started reaching out with congratulatory messages. ALWAYS LOVE AND APPRECIATE YA. According to reports, Cardi was surprised by Executives at Atlantic Records at a dinner after rehearsals for the upcoming 63rd Grammy’s Awards. This has resulted in Cardi officially being given the honor of the first female rapper in history to attain this feat. Wap is a spicy one shorty 5X platinum in 7 months makes me really happy cause I put this song out when I was doubting myself then most. “Thank you every1 that send me beautiful congrats on Bodak going Diamond.
