Cardi B has been paving her lane and keeping it real ever since she dropped her smash single “Bodak Yellow” months ago. Taking over the radio stations and clubs, it seems you can’t go anywhere without hearing that hook, “I don’t dance now…I make money moves.”
Today, she’s announced that her hit record has officially gone No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This is quite an accomplishment for the Bronx-born rapper, as she becomes the first female rapper to have a solo single reach the peak of the chart since Lauryn Hill in 1998.
Cardi is only the fifth female rapper to top the chart, according to Billboard. The only artists who have done it before her: Lauryn Hill, Lil’ Kim, Shawnna, and Iggy Azalea.
She celebrated last night in New York with friends, family and fans. Check out the video above of Cardi flaunting her new accomplishment before her closest supporters.
Cardi B’s latest studio album should be arriving sometime before 2017 wraps.
