Award-winning American rapper, Cardi B has hit a significant milestone by reaching a mark of over 100 million RIAA-Certified milestones sold.
According to a post on Chartdata’s official Twitter account, the certification encompasses the albums, singles, and features the Bronx rapper has released throughout her successful career run. Cardi B becomes the 8th female artist in history to achieve the milestone.
The Bronx rapper rose to fame with her debut single for Atlantic Records, Bodak Yellow which peaked at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart, making her the second-ever female rapper to do so with a solo output after Lauryn Hill in 1998. Since then she’s released three albums: Gansta Bitch Music Vol 1, Gansta Bitch Music Vol II, Invasion of Privacy alongside hit singles like Wap, UP, Tomorrow 2, Rodeo amongst others.
The news of Cardi B reaching over 100 million units follows the RIAA announcement that her critically acclaimed singles Bodak Yellow and I Like it featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin have each sold 11 million units in the United States. Both songs have also earned her the feat as the only female rapper to have two songs certified 11 times platinum.
Attaining another milestone, the WAP crooner marked her 30th birthday on October 11 with a carnival-themed party and a star-studded list of guests. Chance The Rapper, Halle Bailey, Danileigh, DDG, Karrueche Tran, and Chloe all turned up in style to celebrate the rapper. She also went on Instagram a week after her birthday to give a shout-out to Beyoncé for gifting her a large bouquet of beautiful white roses.
“Oh yeah bitch cause motherfucking Beyoncé sent me some motherfucking flowers,” Cardi posted on her Instagram Story. “At this point, I’m about to pull up to her house with some vegan cupcakes or something. Thank you so much.”
While Cardi becomes 100 million RIAA certified she’s also taken to social media to celebrate her win in the mixtape artwork lawsuit after a jury tossed out a man’s accusation that his photo was used on her Gangsta Bitch Music Vol I cover.
