Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” is your new #1 Billboard Hot 100 hit, making it the first solo single by a female rapper on the chart in 19 years (yes, Nicki has not landed one). It pushed Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” out of the way for the top slot.

The last female rap solo single to take the coveted honor was Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in 1998, and before that, there was no one. Iggy Azalea’s “Fancy” hit number one in 2014, but featured Charli XCX, so doesn’t count as a solo single.

Take a listen to “Bodak Yellow” below, and below that, watch Cardi B sing “Look What You Made Me Do.”
