City Girls‘ surprised-dropped sophomore studio album, ‘City on Lock,’ didn’t exactly unlock the fanfare that accompanied its predecessor (which featured the smash hit ‘Act Up’), but the project – their first top 40 hit on the Billboard 200 – was far from a write-off.
More evidence of such comes courtesy of the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), which updated its logs recently to reveal the Southern femcees have added a third plaque from the organization to their growing collection.
The second single from ‘City on Lock,’ the Doja Cat-assisted ‘P***y Talk’ was lifted in July alongside a glossy music video.
Thanks to promotional efforts spread across their official YouTube web series, an emcee-studded remix (featuring Quavo, Jack Harlow, and Lil Wayne), and a sizzling live performance at the 2020 BET Hip Hop Awards, the anthemic cut has talked its way right to Gold status at the RIAA – meaning it’s sold 500,000 copies in the United States.
The plaque is the third award of this caliber of their career and follows the success of previous Platinum-selling singles ‘Twerk’ and ‘Act Up.’
