According to XXL, ‘Funkdafied’ within six months of its release the album peaked at number 11 on the Billboard 200 and moved one million units. With those numbers, the ‘Funkdafied’ single and album both went platinum.

“When I did Funkdafied with JD [Jermaine Dupri], he was like, ‘OK, look Brat. I’ma tell you now, female rappers pretty much only go gold. So if it doesn’t do whatever, don’t be disappointed,’” Brat said during a 2011 interview on BET’s Monique Show. “And I was like, ‘OK…I just want to do music.’”

On this day, we celebrate Da Brat’s accomplishment 28 years ago today! Check out the video below.
