Less than three weeks ago, Lil Uzi Vert scored a diamond plague for “XO Tour Llif3.” The supreme single amassed over 11 million copies. It was then named Uzi’s first RIAA diamond single.
Recently, just a few days ago, Lil Uzi received news of his latest single “Just Wanna Rock” reaching diamond status too. The EDM hit single sold over a million units in the US.
Uzi immediately took to his social media to share a message in response to the news. The rapper said,
“Never let them get in Your head BE YOU,” and ended with an emoji.
The diamond single “Just Wanna Rock” is different from Hip-Hop releases this year. Lil Uzi Vert opts to limit rapping and heading the rockstar way on this track. He is in tune with the inner rock star, and repeatedly rants to his fans about,
“I just wanna, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
I just wanna rock, body-ody, yeah (shake it down)”
Although released in October, the single instantly became a hit on TikTok and garnered over 500 million views in no time. “Just Wanna Rock” inspired content creators to influence a routine dance for the single. The song exhausted the Billboard Hot 100 for ten weeks, with a top 21 peak.
