The wins continue to stack up for DJ Khaled. On Tuesday (July 25), the "I'm the One" star announced that his infectious single "Wild Thoughts" featuring Rihanna and Bryson Tiller has officially gone platinum. 

"#WILDTHOUGHTS #DJKHALEDFEAT @badgalriri @brysontiller OFFICIALLY PLATINUM! FAN LUV THANK YOU SO MUCH ! #GRATEFUL AVAILABLE EVERYWHERE NOW .. BLESS UP," Khaled wrote on his Instagram. After his announcement, a gracious Khaled made sure to thank everyone involved in the creative process, including the song's writer, PARTYNEXTDOOR.

 "@wethebestmusic @rocnation@epicrecords prod by #DJKHALED bless up @partynextdoor for putting your blessings on there wit me," he wrote. For Khaled, the success of "Wild Thoughts" serves as another accolade for him, as the record has earned more than 1 million equivalent song units. 

Since the release of Khaled's fiery single -- currently No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 -- numerous remixes for "Wild Thoughts" have been created. First, A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Fabolous tamed thirsty groupies with their remix "Wild Thots." Then, last weekend, two of R&B's premier artists in Tory Lanez and Trey Songz delivered a scorching rendition of their own.

After announcing that "Wild Thoughts" went platinum, Khaled posted on Instagram again to celebrate his four nominations at next month's MTV Video Music Awards. "Wow !!!!! I know now !! Fan luv!! We did it !!! 4 @vmas nominations!! @mtv!!! GOD IS THE GREATEST!! When me and my son made #GRATEFUL we talk about all the great amazing things we will be doing we knew when we was in the studio making these anthems how powerful the music we was creating," wrote Khaled
