Desiigner is out here winning. The RIAA has confirmed that his breakout single “Panda” is platinum as of May 3.
The G.O.O.D. Music signee shared the good news on Instagram.
Desiigner’s debut single made history in April when it hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The success of “Panda” made him the youngest artist to top the chart since Chris Brown in 2007, and he is the first first rapper to have the number one song on the Hot 100 with a debut chart entry since Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy.” A solo male rapper hasn’t earned the No. 1 distinction with their first single since Wiz Khalifa’s “Black And Yellow.” Most notable, the song is platinum with no official music video.
