RIAA: Cardi B’s ‘Up’ Now 2x Platinum / ‘WAP’ Sails to 6x Platinum

Published: Tuesday 20th Jul 2021 by Rashad

If ever there was doubt about the demand for Cardi B‘s new album – the follow-up to her history-making debut LP, ‘Invasion of Privacy’ – the ongoing success of the forthcoming set’s first two singles should silence it.

As if making a splash with the wave of wins afforded to ‘WAP’ wasn’t enough, Cardi followed the Megan Thee Stallion-assisted single with a solo #1 hit, ‘Up’ (making her the first female rapper to accrue five Hot 100 #1 hits over her career).

Now, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) is showering the hits with even more good news.

Details inside:

On July 12, the RIAA updated its logs to reveal ‘WAP’ had reached 6x Platinum status – a measure indicative of 6 million units sold in the United States alone.  It’s the third single of her career to be certified as high and follows the Diamond (10x Platinum) success of her debut hit, ‘Bodak Yellow,’ and the 9x Platinum standing of her Bad Bunny & J. Balvin-assisted smash, ‘I Like It.’

Other news B will like is the recently reported 2x Platinum status of ‘Up.’  Announced July 14, the song stands as her 12th multiPlatinum hit.

Together, the certifications extend Cardi’s reign as the most-certified female rapper of the digital era.  She now sits at a career total of 47 million singles sold in the United States alone.

Among all female acts, only Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Rihanna have sold more digital records.

    She has been on a roll until she collaborated that boring flopmani girl.

    Cardi u have to pick ur collaborations wisely.

    I know u like normani personaly cause u pity her and have sympathy for her cause u have looked at her and u know she has no talent, so that’s why you have decided to help her but at what cost?

    That wild side song is literally dead on arrival.
    It was released 3 days ago but the song has already aged like milk.

      I had expected to find this comment and I found it as expected. 😸 Normani girl, 90% of that extra energy you feel out of nowhere is courtesy of Clarxon. Vacuum him empty! 😂

    “Among all female acts, only Ariana Grande, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Rihanna have sold more digital records.“ —— Not a true story 🤷🏽‍♂️ — Now now, Beyoncé just hasn’t updated her certifications boo. I’m sure Minaj has also sold more, her pop hits alone sold more than 30k. Not to mention Mariah

    Cardi B’s Legacy:

    – Awful lyrics, zero flow, can’t freestyle whatsoever.

    – A WAP that can’t keep Offset off these h/o/es.

    – Face, a/s/s & t*** full of silicone.

    – Bill Cosby’d various men for the bag.

    – Can’t debate worth a d/a/m/n but can get loud & ratchet AF.

    Feel free to include anymore of Cardi’s “admirable” contributions to the culture.
