Lil Baby recently had many reasons to rejoice. In addition to preparing for the October release of his It’s Only Me album, the 27-year-old native of Atlanta recently wrapped up a successful run with Chris Brown on their North American One Of Them Ones Tour. The pair appear eager to extend their tour to Europe in the future.
Additionally, the rapper’s 2018 joint effort with fellow Georgian Gunna, “Drip Too Hard,” has been officially certified Diamond by the RIAA, making it one of only 100 songs in music history to receive such an honor. This news was made public this week. Other songs on the well-known list include “Not Afraid” by Eminem, “Baby” by Justin Bieber, “Thrift Shop” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, and “Uptown Funk” by Mark Ronson with Bruno Mars.
Just over two months after its debut, on November 28, 2018, “Drip Too Hard” received its first Gold and Platinum certifications. Throughout 2019, the song was certified multiple times as multi-platinum, first in February 2020, then once more in May 2021, and finally on Monday, September 12.
The collaboration’s song also received a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Song/Sung Performance, peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100 list, and has received over 4 billion streams globally. While Gunna, Baby’s close buddy, is still imprisoned until January 2023, when the YSL Gang Indictment trial is scheduled to start, Baby is free and able to commemorate the significant milestone.
