The Latin-trap summer banger, which features J Balvin and Bad Bunny, has moved 10 million units. According to the RIAA, one equivalent song unit is equal to a single digital song sale, or 150 on-demand audio and/or video streams. She became the first female rapper to have a diamond-certified song earlier this year with her major-label debut single “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves).” “I Like It” is now Cardi’s third diamond-certified smash, following “Bodak Yellow” and “Girls Like You” by Maroon 5, which hit the record on Nov. 29, according to the RIAA’s website.
“OMMMMMMGGGGGGG @sanbenito @JBALVIN !!!!!!!!!” the 29-year-old rapper tweeted in celebration Monday (Dec. 13) when the song officially earned diamond certification.
