Doja Cat on Friday received a whopping 22 new RIAA certifications, moving her up the ranks to hold the second-most platinum singles for a female rapper alongside Nicki Minaj.

Doja’s last two albums — Planet Her (2021) and Hot Pink (2019) — both received platinum certifications, and her 2018 record Amala was certified gold. The RIAA recognized “Juicy,” “Need To Know,” “Ain’t Sh*t,” “Streets,” “Rules,” “Get Into It (Yuh),” “Woman,” “Cyber Sex,” “Candy,” “You Right” featuring The Weeknd, “Like That” featuring Gucci Mane, “Tia Tamera” featuring Rico Nasty with platinum certification. Notably, “Say So” and “Kiss Me More” featuring SZA have now gone five-times and four-times platinum, respectively.

Additionally, Doja accumulated six gold certifications on the following tracks: “I Don’t Do Drugs” featuring Ariana Grande, “Freak,” “Amala,” “Bottom Bitch,” “So High,” and “Mooo!”

In a May cover story for Elle, the Grammy-winning artist spoke about her perceived identity as only a pop star and not a rapper, claiming that “real fans” know where she started. “I’ve rapped since the beginning, and I really couldn’t even sing that well to begin with—I got a lot better,” Doja said. “I use my voice as a tool to create these worlds, and it’s fine if people think that I can’t rap.”

See the full list of Doja Cat’s certifications on RIAA’s website.

Elsewhere in music, Cardi B has returned with a new track, “Hot Sh*t,” featuring Kanye West and Lil Durk.
