Flo Rida hasn’t made much noise over the last few years, but Hip Hop fans would be surprised to learn he stands as the 6th most-certified Rap artist in digital music history (as of time reported).
Thanks to the enduring success of his late 2000’s and early 2010’s hits like ‘Right Round,’ ‘My House,’ ‘Whistle,’ and more, the emcee (born Tramar Dillard) has remained a silent slayer of charts, radio, and music sale tallies. The latest evidence of this comes courtesy of the Recording Industry Association of America’s recent announcement regarding the sales status of his biggest hit yet – 2007’s ‘Low.’
Join us inside for details.
Over 13 years after its release, ‘Low’ remains one of the most successful songs in Hot 100 history.
In addition to reigning atop the tally for 10 weeks at the height of its popularity, the tune is listed as the most downloaded song of the entire decade. What’s more, it’s currently named in the top 30 on the ‘All Time Hot 100’ list.
For those reasons and more, it comes as little shock the unshakeable hit has now been certified Diamond by the RIAA – meaning it’s sold the equivalence of 10 million copies in the United States.
Standing as Flo’s highest certified song to date, ‘Low’ is now the just the 46th song in history to be awarded a Diamond plaque.
