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 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 BeyoncΓ©-assisted “Shining” f 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.”
