Congratulations to Cardi B for becoming the first female rapper to achieve diamond status for two singles. The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) announced on Monday (November 29) that Cardi’s song with Maroon 5, “Girls Like You” had sold over 10 million units in the United States this week. Her song, “Bodak Yellow” reached diamond status earlier this year. Cardi took to Twitter to thank Maroon 5 writing, “Wow I got two Diamond records! Thank you sooo much [Maroon 5] for including me on this song and this is the song I cater to my daughter every time I perform it.” Cardi is the first female rapper to receive the honor and she’s the third female to ever reach multi-diamond status. Cardi follows Lady Gaga who also has two diamond records and Katy Perry who has three. W
