Not even two weeks after its tsunami-sized premiere, ‘WAP’ – the musical tag team of chart-topping rapstresses Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion – was certified Platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), a measure that denotes 1 million units sold in the United States.
Now, just four months after its arrival, the song’s tripled that success.
See what we mean inside:
On November 25, the RIAA updated its logs to reveal this history-making ‘WAP’ crossed the threshold for 3x Platinum certification – a feat that denotes 3 million units sold in the United States.
As Meg is the featured artist on the Ayo the Producer-produced bop, the upgraded certification status is not attributed to her overall career tally. For Cardi, on the other hand, the ‘WAP’ now becomes her 11th multi-Platinum hit and follows the successes of ‘Bodak Yellow,’ ‘Money,’ ‘I Like It,’ ‘Please Me,’ and more.
The ongoing popularity of ‘WAP’ serves as evidence B’s fans – affectionately called #BardiGang – are more than ready for her to serve up the yet-tiled, highly anticipated follow-up to her 2018 debut album, ‘Invasion of Privacy.’
