Make way for the new queen of the charts.
According to HuffPost, rapper Cardi B just claimed the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100 chart with “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” and with it, she claimed a spot in history, becoming “the first female rapper to top the chart without an accompanying act since Lauryn Hill in 1998.”
But her accolades don’t stop there: HuffPost reports that her seat at the top of the charts “makes her the second female rapper to top the Hot 100 with a solo hit, and only the fifth female rapper to top the Hot 100 chart at all,” joining the likes of Lil Kim, Iggy Azalea and Shawnaa.
Cardi B also became the first solo female artist since Meaghan Trainor to have her debut track hit No. 1, says HuffPost.
You can’t ask for anything better than that! Congratulations to Cardi B.
