Winning: Cardi B Becomes First Female Artist EVER To Receive RIAA Gold Certification on Same Day of Album Release

Cardi B‘s album ‘Invasion of Privacy‘ hasn’t been out a full 24 hours and has already been certified gold by the RIAA according to recent calculations and a small technicality that helped propel the certification.

via Billboard:

The project reportedly received the brand new certification due to a technicality, which she can attribute to the success of her mega-hit, “Bodak Yellow,” according to Forbes. As previously reported, “Bodak Yellow” was certified 5x multi-platinum in Sept 2017. That being so, the Chart Data states that 10 track units is the equivalent of one album sale, which means that her No. 1 single, which is on her album, has already sold 500,000 units, making it Gold status.

While “Bodak Yellow” is boosting Cardi’s looks in regards to the RIAA, its past units will reportedly not go towards her first week sales. Even so, there’s still a lot to celebrate. In addition to the Gold certification, it was recently announced that her second single “Bartier Cardi” has gone Platinum, peaking at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100.

This news makes Cardi the first ever female artist to be certified Gold by the RIAA on day of album release. Go Cardi!
