French Montana has made double history in music, not only for his native African roots, but also for simply being from the boogie-down Bronx.
It appears French Montana is making double history.
He is now the first African artist and Bronx native to successfully receive an RIAA Diamond certification within the music industry for 2017’s “Unforgettable.”
The “Unforgettable” rapper posted a photo to Twitter to illustrate his new RIAA Diamond plaque.
The caption stated:
“This ain’t regular. GOD IS GREAT”
Furthermore, French celebrated dinner with an intimate group of people to present the plaque.
The plaque proudly represents the hit single’s 10 million units in sales.
The music video for the song was filmed in Kampala, Uganda.
French Montana isn’t the only one receiving this recognition.
Nick Minaj recently became a RIAA diamond plaque owner for her hit “Super Bass.”
