RIAA: Maroon 5’s ‘Girls Like You’ Makes Cardi B First Female Rapper Listed on TWO Diamond Singles

Published: Tuesday 30th Nov 2021 by Rashad

As a recent Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) announcement suggests, the ongoing success of Maroon 5‘s 2018 hit – ‘Girls Like You’ – proves there aren’t exactly a lot of girls like Cardi B.

Details inside:

Although ‘Girls’ is already penciled in Billboard history books for making Cardi the first female rapper to nab 3 Hot 100 #1 hits over her career, Monday (November 29), the RIAA took to press to announce Maroon 5 and Cardi’s chart-topping duet had crossed another history-making threshold as it was certified Diamond.  This means it’s now sold the equivalence of 10 million units in the United States alone.

While it should be clear that Cardi’s listing as a featured act on the tune means its certified sales performance is not added to her cumulative total, she still becomes the first female rapper attached to TWO Diamond-selling singles by listing alone. Earlier this year, her debut single, ‘Bodak Yellow,’ was certified Diamond as well.

The certification upgrade means Maroon earns the second Diamond plaque of their career (following the award granted to 2011’s Christina Aguilera-assisted ‘Moves Like Jagger’).

        Cardboard may have passed on ‘tusa’ but Nicki ate that song up! cardboard could never. 🤣 Cardi didn’t add anything special to the maroon 5 track. BTW ‘Superbass’ went diamond years ago. 😏
