Right when we think Cardi B cannot possibly keep making money moves, she proves that there’s no stopping her rise to the top. The Bronx-born rapper has skyrocketed on the strength of possibly the song of the year, “Bodak Yellow.” And after taking the No. 1 throne on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart a few weeks ago, she has put up her feet and gotten comfy – all while making history.
With three weeks at the top of the chart, “Bodak Yellow” is officially the longest running No. 1 by a solo woman rapper. Ever. It’s previously been notable as the first No. 1 solo single by a female rapper in 19 years. Despite fierce competition from New Taylor Swift (the old one is dead, if you hadn’t heard) and some petty comments from other female rappers, Cardi B seems unstoppable.
As she told OUT on the night the track dropped, “If you want to feel like shitting on bitches [or] shitting on anybody, you’re going to want to put that record on. You’re going to feel like you’re making money moves.” Given its astronomical success, we have a feeling there are a lot of people who feel like shitting on someone.
