Cardi B’s Reign Continues! Check Out Her Bruno Mars Collabo

I read a quote on instagram last year that read…. “May 2018 be as good for you as 2017 was to Cardi B’.

Definitely made for a hilarious new year’s message but isn’t that true?

I mean Cardi B seemed to have come out of nowhere with her ‘Bodak Yellow’ single, capturing all our attention with a long stay at number one with that particular single.

This former reality TV show star had been recording and putting out mix-tapes long before that, but what has been most impressive about her is her continuity.

Unlike other artists to have enjoyed a fast catapult to the top of the industry, (like Korean star Psy with ‘Gangnam Style’), Cardi B has so far managed to clutch onto the top spot, getting featured on Migos’s single ‘Motor Sport’ and releasing three of her own singles, including this Bruno Mars collaboration.

Featuring on this 24K Magic star’s single ‘Finesse’ Cardi B is clearly looking to cement her place as one of this generation’s top rated artist.

As for whether or not Cardi B is doing at good job at that, (at cementing her place in the ‘book of legends’)… we’d say she’s well on her way given this post that Bruno Mars shared on his social media, describing her. It read…

I met cardi B at 3 am after my show in LA backstage where we recorded her verse for Finesse. She walked in the room and she was everything I’d hope she’d be. Never change cardi! Don’t let this crazy music business change who you are. You posses something that can’t be taught. You’re a true star. Thank you for putting your energy and love all over this record and video. I hope you feel better soon because we got some celebrating to do. Everyone show ya love for the one and only CARDI B! 👏👏👏👏 #Finesse

 

Cardi B Is Officially The First Female Rapper To Do THIS!

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)
