Cardi B says several times in her Grammy-nominated hit “I Like It” that she likes her diamonds and she just added another rock to her collection.  

“Girls Like You,” Cardi’s collab with Maroon 5, crossed over into the realm of RIAA Diamond-certified songs, meaning it has sold over 10 million copies.  This is Cardi’s and the band’s second Diamond-certification.

The 29-year-old has now made history as the first female rapper to score two Diamond-certified tracks.  Cardi previously snagged the honor with her breakout single “Bodak Yellow.”

She took to Twitter to celebrate making history, tweeting out, “Wow I got two Diamond records! Thank you sooo much @maroon5 for including me on this song and this is the song I cater to my daughter every time I perform it. I’m forever grateful.”

The band celebrated the new achievement on Instagram, writing, “Girls Like You ft. Cardi B has been RIAA certified 10x Multi-Platinum!”

“Girls Like You,” released in 2018, spent seven weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 and was one of the top-selling songs of the year. Its music video — which featured Gal GadotEllen DeGeneresCamila CabelloAly RaismanTiffany HaddishJennifer LopezMary J.
