DJ Khaled is truly on the pathway to more success.
After his star-studded “I’m the One” single became his first No. 1 on the Hot 100, the Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, and Lil Wayne-assisted track has been certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.
Taking to Instagram, Khaled celebrated the news. “Bless up fan luv,” he wrote. “ANOTHER ONE #IMTHEONE OFFICIALLY #GOLD And the rec only been out for 2 weeks .. WOW BE PLATINUM any day now @wethebestmusic @epicrecords @rocnation FAN LUV THANK YOU IM SO #GRATEFUL.”
After topping the Hot 100 last week, the song slid to No. 3, behind Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like” and this week’s new No. 1, Luis Fonsi & Daddy Yankee’s own Bieber-assisted smash, “Despacito.”
“I’m the One” follows the Jay Z and Beyoncé-assisted “Shining” off Khaled’s forthcoming album Grateful. The superstar DJ is putting the final touches on the project, which is also expected to feature Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, and Big Sean.
Grateful is the follow-up to Khaled’s gold-certified Major Key LP, which spawned three platinum singles: “Do You Mind,” “I Got the Keys,” and “For Free.”
