Move over Taylor Swift and “Look What You Made Me Do.” A new queen, and a new single has just moved in to grab that number one spot. Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow is now the number one song in America. The song has received major plays everywhere all summer, and has now officially moved Cardi into that coveted number one spot. Bodak Yellow is the first solo song by a female rap artist to top the charts in 19 years! Cardi B is only the fifth female rapper to ever hold the #1 spot. Cardi now joins Lauren Hill, Lil’ Kim, Shawnna, and Iggy Azelia as the only female rappers to hold such an honor.
Cardi B’s rise to stardom has really been an amazing thing to witness. From Instagram, to Love & Hip Hop, to a successful rap career, and now to the #1 song in the Country. Wow! Through it all, Cardi has remained consistently…..Cardi. She has not changed one bit. When I saw Cardi on Love & Hip Hop I had no idea that she was even a rapper. I thought she was just another person that was being brought on the show to make trouble and fight. I was wrong. Love & Hip Hop was just a stepping stone and not a career move for Ms. B. You have to love, or at least respect Cardi B’s grind from the bottom to the top. It’s proof that if you work hard enough, and maybe catch a break here and there, you can achieve your dreams. Congratulations Cardi!
