Cardi B has made history, yet again.

On Tuesday, it was officially announced that the Grammy-winning artist has become the first female rapper with two Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified 11-times platinum hits. The record beats out her previous one of becoming the first female rapper to have a song reach Diamond status.

The new accolade comes thanks to her breakthrough hit “Bodak Yellow” and the Bad Bunny and J Balvin-assisted “I Like It.” Each track boasts billions of global streams and over a billion music video videos. 

To top it off, the certifications come on Cardi’s 30th birthday, giving her an extra reason to celebrate. 

Previously, Cardi made history when “Bodak Yellow” was 10-times certified Platinum and again when every song on her debut album Invasion of Privacy was certified at least Platinum by the RIAA.
