Drake and Lil Baby‘s “Wants & Needs” is now eligible for a gold plaque from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

Chart Data revealed that the Scary Hours 2 collab sold 500,000 units in the United States in less than a month. Although the RIAA itself is yet to present the certification to Drizzy and Baby, fans can expect a new plaque for the cut (and the EP’s two other songs) soon.

“Wants & Needs” joined “What’s Next” and “Lemon Pepper Freestyle” with Rick Ross on Scary Hours 2, and all three tracks debuted at Nos. 1, 2 and 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 — making Drake the first rapper to simultaneously hold the top three spots. Eager fans are expecting the cuts to appear on the OVO head’s highly-anticipated studio album Certified Lover Boy, which DJ Akademiks claimed will release before April 2021.

Elsewhere in music, Lil Uzi Vert teased the possibility of his sequel mixtape, The Real Uzi 2.
