Wayne recently garnered his first Diamond certification from the RIAA for his generational smash “Lollipop” featuring Static Major. He personally shared a video unboxing the plaque on his social media.

As the legendary rapper’s biggest single ever, “Lollipop” held No. 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 one billion streams, and it notably graced the track listing of 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 No. 1 sound on TikTok’s US Top Tracks and vaulted to No. 2 on the Viral chart. He also delivered a scorching performance of “Lollipop” on Amazon Music Live hosted by 2 Chainz.
