The same week rising rapstress Mulatto earned her first Hot 100 placement with ‘B*tch from Da Souf’ was the same week she learned the title had been certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Boasting a fiery original version, the Bankroll Got It-produced song was given the ultimate boost once established femcees Trina and Saweetie added their spicy additions on its remix – ultimately helping the cut become Big Latto’s breakout hit.
Now, just 7 months ‘Souf’ saw its sales head north in response to growing buzz from its parent album – ‘Queen of Da Souf’ (click here to stream) – it’s logged a career milestone for its creator.
After accumulating thousands in digital sales, over 80 million YouTube views across its original and remix’s music videos, and millions of streams on Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music, and other streaming outlets (as of time reported), Mulatto’s breakthrough single, ‘B*tch from Da Souf,’ was certified Platinum by the RIAA this week. The measure denotes sales of 1 million in the United States alone.
A milestone accomplishment for Big Latto, the big news comes as the first of its kind in her career to date and arrives just two months after the RCA Records star learned her Gucci Mane-assisted cut – ‘MUWOP’ – was certified Gold.
