Chaka Khan and Rufus’ “Ain’t Nobody” certified platinum

Chaka Khan and Rufus have collectively earned a new RIAA certification as their 1983 hit single, “Ain’t Nobody,” is now a platinum song. 

According to a Vibe report, though this is their first platinum certification, the former collaborators have two gold plaques for “Sweet Thing” and “Tell Me Something Good.”

As Vibe reports, this feat also marks the songstress’ first new nod in nearly 40 years with her fifth studio album I Feel For You (1984) earning its platinum plaque on December 18, 1984.

Vibe writes that “Ain’t Nobody” stems from Khan and Rufus’ final album, which peaked at No. 4 on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart (formerly the Top Black Albums chart), No. 1 on the Hot Black Singles chart, No. 6 on the Dance Club Songs chart, and No. 50 on the Billboard 200.

The record also earned Khan a Grammy win in 1984 for Best R&B Performance by a Duo Or Group With Vocal.
