Roddy Ricch is continuing to smash records with his breakthrough single, “The Box.”
According to Chart Data, the track has now been certified 7x-platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The song has sold over seven million units in the United States since its release in December, making it the best-selling song of 2020.
The news arrives just three days after Roddy’s collaboration with DaBaby, “Rockstar,” went 4x–platinum.
Taken from his debut album Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, “The Box” spent an incredible 11 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song originally debuted at No. 47 on the chart, before reaching the No. 1 spot four weeks later.
Despite reaching various milestones, Roddy is already looking ahead to new music. On August 10, the Compton rapper claimed that his next project will be a “full-blown masterpiece.”
“Could I drop a new album right now? Yes. Will I? No,” he told GQ. “It’s really not about it being ready or not ready. It’s more about the timing. I really just drop when I feel like it. The next album is going to be a full blown masterpiece. A real idea. A real body of work.”
Just two weeks later, he continued to speak about the album on Instagram Live, saying it’s dropping “soon as fuck.”
