Curtis “50 Cent” Jacksons’ seminal 2003 smash “In Da Club” has officially reached RIAA Diamond status. It marks his very first Diamond certification.

Thus far, the song has amassed over 1.2 billion Spotify streams and 1.8 billion YouTube views on the music video. It impressively averages 42 million-plus streams per week worldwide. Produced by Dr. Dre and Mike Elizondo, it notably concluded 2003 as the #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 year-end chart.

“In Da Club” adorned his blockbuster 9x-platinum full-length debut album, “Get Rich Or Die Tryin.” The Grammy and Emmy Award-winning Queens, NY rapper delivered a modern classic on his first try.

The classic album arrived on February 6, 2003, and it immediately bowed at #1 on the Billboard 200. It capped off 2003 as “the best-selling album of the year” and saw him score a total of five Grammy Award nominations, including “Best New Artist,” “Best Rap Album,” “Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group” for “Magic Stick” with Lil Kim, and “Best Male Rap Solo Performance” and “Best Rap Song” for “In Da Club.”
