Cardi B makes history.
Cardi B’s had an incredible year so far and in all reality, it’s due to one song that helped catapult her career to another level. We’ve been watching her grow as an artist over the past few months and blossom into the star that she’s become. However, the strength of “Bodak Yellow” not only landed her a number one single but it helped her launch her career to another level. As the year ends, she’s now being credited for another feat in her career.
Cardi B is the first woman to ever chart her first three singles on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart, according to Billboard’s report. The rapper’s blow out single “Bodak Yellow” spent six weeks on the chart and now sits at number 2. However, her latest feature with Migos and Nicki Minaj “Motorsport” debuted at number five on the charts while the G-Eazy single “No Limit” with herself and A$AP Rocky is sitting at number 10 on the Billboard. It’s definitely a “money move” for Cardi B.
Along with that incredible feat, she also becomes the first artist in general to do that since Fetty Wap stepped into the scene in 2015. Fetty’s first three singles, “Trap Queen,” “My Way,” and “679” shared spaces in the top 10 on the chart for 13 weeks straight. Along with that, Cardi joins a handful of women to ever accomplish that. Alongside herself, Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, Iggy Azalea, Ashanti and Rihanna were among the only women to ever have three singles sitting at the top 10’s at the same time.
It’s a great feat to cap off a highly eventful year for the Bronx rapper. Things in both her professional and personal life have been going very well for her. A few weeks back, Offset turned in his player card and proposed to Cardi B during a performance at PowerHouse in Philadelphia with a $500K ring. Of course, it didn’t take long for VH1, BET and other media networks to publicly share interest in broadcasting the wedding. Neither Cardi B or Offset have made any deals yet, to our knowledge, but if they do, they’ll definitely be getting a fat bag for it.
