Drake bags first diamond certification, with his hit, God’s Plan.
Who said it isn’t Drake‘s world? Show thyself or forever remain silent. The Toronto rapper continues to outdo himself with achievement after achievement. We’re almost envious of all these wins that continue to pour like rain.
When Drizzy dropped God’s Plan, the universe went wild and we sang along to the rapper’s celebratory lyrics. Surely, all his success has been nothing but God’s Plan. It’s probably also his plan for the track to be certified Diamond. The rapper earns his first diamond certification with the hit.
The hitsong is one of eight songs from the rapper to be certified recently by the RIAA. The rest include Hotline Bling (8x platinum), One Dance (8x platinum), Started From the Bottom (6x platinum), The Motto (6x platinum), Take Care (5x platinum), In My Feelings (5x platinum), and Nice For What (5x platinum).
God’s Plan was released in January 19, 2018 through Young Money and Cash Money. It was written by the Canadian rapper, alongside Ronald Latour, Daveon Jackson, Matthew Samuels, and Noah Shebib. The track was produced by Cardo, Yung Exclusive, and Boi 1da. It was featured as a single on the rapper’s second EP, Scary Hours released in 2018 and the lead single from his fifth studio album, Scorpion which also dropped in 2018.
It won the Best Rap Song award at the Grammys earning two more noms. It topped the charts in fourteen countries, including the US, the UK and Canada. It became the 24th song to top the Hot 100 chart for 11 weeks.
