D.R.A.M.’s “Broccoli” Featuring Lil Yachty Certified Four Times Platinum
There's no telling how D.R.A.M. and Lil Yachty will be celebrating this month, as the RIAA has certified their single "Broccoli" four times platinum. Released back in April of 2016, the song has been a huge smash for the two rappers, peaking at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100, currently sitting at No. 31 in its 34th week on the chart.
D.R.A.M. celebrates the achievement in a tweet below. There may be more cause to roll up some broccoli later in the month, too, as the track is nominated for a Best Rap/Sung Performance Grammy. D.R.A.M. and Yachty will go against Kanye West, who is nominated twice for "Famous" and "Ultralight Beam," as well as Beyonce's "Freedom" with Kendrikc Lamar and Drake's 'Hotline Bling."
Upon learning of the nomination, Yachty tweeted, "Not gonna lie I’d love to see Chance leave out the Grammys with his hands full. Love that guy. But don’t get me wrong if dram and I win Ima hit the dougie." D.R.A.M. meanwhile told XXL that he's been floating. "It was very, very early, he says of hearing the news. "I was overwhelmed. I still don’t think I’ve gotten a good scream out yet."
The 59th Annual Grammy awards air this Sun., Feb. 12, at 8 p.m. EST. Earlier this month, it was announced that Chance The Rapper, who has seven nominations, largely for Coloring Book, will be performing at the ceremony. Anderson .Paak and A Tribe Called Quest will also take the stage together come show time.
