Cardi B’s ‘I Like It’ Almost Up For Platinum Certification
The plaques keep coming back to back for rapstress Cardi B.
After seeing her official debut single, ‘Bodak Yellow,’ cross the RIAA’s multiplatinum threshold, her tune, ‘Bartier Cardi,’ and featured appearances on ‘Finesse’ (Bruno Mars), and ‘No Limit’ (G-Eazy) helped them do the same.
Now, as her debut album, ‘Invasion of Privacy,’ has been certified Gold, its latest single – ‘I Like It’ – has gifted the rapstress the potential for her latest RIAA plaque.
Thanks to a handsome helping of streams and paid downloads before the arrival of its music video (which hoisted it to a #8 Hot 100 peak at the time), the clip’s release last week pushed the J. Balvin-assisted tune to a new peak on the Hot 100 this week.
Blasting to #7, the composite of over 31 million streams and thousands of downloads escorted the song’s overall music consumption past the 1 million mark (thereby making it eligible for platinum certification in the United States).
