Bodak Yellow has been the trending track for months across the world which is quite the impressive feat seeing as how it’s rapper Cardi B’s first official single.
The track which is bass heavy and a popular hit in the clubs has now given this Caribbean affiliated star a new accolade, becoming the first ever female rapper to top Billboard Hot 100 without assistance from any other rapper.
How big a feat is that? Well the last time a female rapper did that, it was 19 years ago and the artist was Lauryn Hill.
Cardi B’s ‘Bodak Yellow’ is now holding back other heavyweight jams from the top spot, including former Record of the Week ‘Rockstar‘ by Post Malone ft 21 Savage which stands at number two and Taylor Swift’s ‘Look What You Made Me Do‘ which is at number three.
Cardi B got her rise to fame notably on reality show Love and Hip Hop and she even references the show’s producer Mona Scott when she says;
Had to let these bitches know (yeah), just in case these hoes forgot (oh)
I just run and check the mail, another check from Mona Scott (oh)
