Cardi B is officially the queen of music right now, as Bodak Yellow rises to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Cardi becomes the first female rapper to top the chart with an unassisted single since the legendary Lauryn Hill did it 19 years ago with Doo Wop.
She’s the 5th female rapper ever to reach the top of the charts, with the last being Iggy Azalea and her Charli XCX-assisted track, Fancy, in 2014.
The records don’t stop there: After Meghan Trainor’s All About That Bass in 2014, Cardi’s also the only female solo artiste to top the charts with her debut track.
The song has already taken her places, including getting her a performance slot at the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards.
She’s even getting support from rap icons such as J. Cole, who advised her not to put too much pressure on herself.
Also Cardi b I seen your breakfast club interview, loved it. Don’t put all that pressure on your album. You already won. Just drop & repeat
