As of time reported there are only 31 songs in history privy to the honor of Diamond certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and now Drake‘s colossal 2018 hit, ‘God’s Plan,’ is one of them.
The Boi-1da produced cut, which served as the lead single from Drizzy’s blockbuster ‘Scorpion’ album, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 at the top of last year and stayed there for a total of 11 weeks. Leading its parent album to similar wins on the Billboard 200 at the height of their respective successes, ‘Plan’ added another historic achievement to its list of chart and digital domination this week when it became the latest tune to pass the 10x platinum threshold with the RIAA.
As indicated in the photo above, the RIAA updated the certification status of a number of Drake albums and songs including ‘Nice for What,’ ‘In My Feelings,’ and more – a move that extends his reign as the most certified artist of the digital era (overall). The standout – however – comes courtesy of ‘God’s Plan’ which, at its 11x Platinum status, serves as the 6 God’s first Diamond certified track ever. To attain such an achievement an artist has to “sell” the equivalent of 10 million units of a song or album.
Congrats are certainly due to Drizzy for his ongoing success thanks to blockbuster streams!
