Cardi B, Migos & Post Malone Earn RIAA's Top Awarded Albums Honor

Drake also had an amazing year commercially.

(AllHipHop News) Hip Hop dominated the music scene in 2018. The Recording Industry Association of America's year-end certifications provided further evidence of that cultural supremacy.

Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy, Migos' Culture II, and Post Malone's Beerbongs & Bentleys were named the Top Awarded Albums by the RIAA. The three projects were the only ones to reach double platinum status this year.

Just eight other 2018 albums were certified platinum. Six of those LPs were released by rap acts - XXXTentacion's ?, Travis Scott's AstroWorld, J. Cole's KOD, Kendrick Lamar's Black Panther: The Album, Eminem's Kamikaze, and Drake's Scorpion.

In addition, Drake earned the honor of 2018's Top Awarded Song for "God's Plan." The #1 smash was certified eight-times platinum. Scorpion, Invasion of Privacy, Beerbongs & Bentleys, and Black Panther were also nominated for Album Of The Year at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.
