Multi-platinum, GRAMMY Award-winning music mogul Lil Wayne has garnered his first Diamond certification from the RIAA for his generational smash “Lollipop” [feat. Static Major]. He personally shared a video unboxing the plaque on his social media.
As the legendary rapper’s biggest single ever, “Lollipop” held #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for five non-consecutive weeks and picked up a GRAMMY Award in the category of “Best Rap Song.” It has clocked over 1 billion streams, and it notably graced the track listing of his GRAMMY Award-winning 8x-platinum 2008 classic Tha Carter III. Meanwhile, the single included posthumous vocals from Static Major, enshrining the singer’s legacy as well.
Recently, it has enjoyed a renaissance. Last month, it emerged as the #1 sound on TikTok’s US Top Tracks and vaulted to #2 on the Viral chart. He also delivered a scorching performance of “Lollipop” on Amazon Music Live hosted by 2 Chainz.
To date, Lil Wayne has gathered five GRAMMY® Awards, sold 120 million records worldwide, notched 25 Top 10 singles, logged five #1 debuts on the Billboard Top 200, and scored 62 gold, platinum, and multiplatinum certifications. The “greatest rapper alive” is back and better than ever in 2023.
Be on the lookout for a whole lot more soon.
