Cardi posted a video explaining how her label Atlantic Records surprised her with the plaque at a restaurant after a long, exhausting day of rehearsal.

Fans knew almost immediately that it was about the diamond certification, causing Cardi to question how they were so on top of it, and add that she was to overcome with emotion to celebrate more on Twitter.

"I just want to say thank you guys so much because without you guys, it wouldn't have happened"  

In addition to the "Bodak Yellow" news, Cardi's blockbuster 2020 single "WAP" featuring Megan Thee Stallion just made it halfway to RIAA Diamond status, being certified Platinum five times over.
