Cardi B has another milestone to celebrate. The rapper, despite having just one album to her name is now the first and only female rapper in RIAA history to have multiple Diamond-Certified singles.

She achieved this fit after Maroon 5’s hit single ‘Girls Like You’ from their 2017 album Red Pill Blues sold more than 10 million copies in the U.S. Back in March Cardi’s Bodak Yellow was certified Diamond, making her the only female rapper in history with two Diamond plaques.

The mother of two celebrated the milestone with a Tweet thanking Maroon 5 for including her on the song.

“Wow I got two Diamond records! Thank you sooo much @maroon5 for including me on this song,” she Tweeted on Tuesday (November 30). “This is the song I cater to my daughter every time I perform it.I’m forever grateful.”

After originally releasing ‘Girls Like You’ as a solely Maroon 5 song, Cardi was added to the single version when the album was re-released in May, 2018.
