Though some of the world still struggles to consider her a rapper, Doja Cat isn't playing games when it comes to setting records in the genre. Earlier today (July 1), the 26-year-old received an astounding 22 new certifications from the RIAA, tying her with the Queen of Rap herself, Nicki Minaj for the second-most ever Platinum singles for a female lyricist.
As Uproxx notes, Cardi B is holding onto the top spot with an impressive 17 Platinum singles while the aforementioned duo is following closely behind with 14 each.
