R&B singer Tweet has achieved a new certification from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). 

Her 2002 debut single, “Oops (Oh My)” featuring Missy Elliott, has been crowned gold by the RIAA. The song has sold more than 500,000 equivalent units. 

The Timbaland-produced song has garnered 68 million streams on Spotify; it’s Tweet’s most-streamed on the streaming service.

Elliott surprised Tweet on stage at a recent show to present her with the official plaque. Following the show, Tweet shared a heartfelt message on Instagram.

“To my sis @missymisdemeanorelliott, you believed in me when I didn’t believe in myself!!! You showed up and gave me courage to step out and fly!! Thank you for everything!!! This moment will forever be one of the best in my entire life!!!! Love you dearly,” Tweet wrote in a caption.

“Oops (Oh My)” was released as the first single from Tweet’s debut album, Southern Hummingbird. 

The album was released April 2, 2002, via Elektra Records. It debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart and was certified gold by the end of that month. 

Over the years, fans have speculated that the song was an ode to masturbation. However, in 2021, Elliott went to X (formerly Twitter) to share insight on the song’s true inspiration. 

“#Funfact this song was never bout Masturbation,” Elliott noted. “It was always about her appreciating her Dark Skin (Self Love)when she looked in the mirror. It was the listeners that thought it was about sex & just ran with it… & we just let the consumers mind create what they wanted.”

Earlier this year, Tweet paid tribute to Elliott at the Black Music Honors, where the multifaceted artist — and now Rock and Roll Hall of Famer — was presented with the Music Innovator Icon award. 

In February, Tweet teamed with singer and songwriter Charlie Bereal for a reimagined version of Curtis Mayfield’s classic “The Makings of You.” 

It’s been two years since Tweet last released solo music. In September 2021, she dropped “Neva Gonna Break My Heart Again,” which she co-wrote with Bereal, Jairus Mozee, and Craig Brockman.
