Cardi B has gone from “regular degular girl from The Bronx” to making music chart history.
This summer’s female anthem “Bodak Yellow” has finally made its way to the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. The single bumped Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” to third place, after holding the top spot for three weeks. Post Malone‘s “Rockstar” is currently sitting at No.2.
“Boday Yellow” is the first chart-topping single by a solo female rapper in almost twenty years; the title was held in 1998 by Lauryn Hill for “Doo Wop (That Thing).” Cardi B and Atlantic Records celebrated the remarkable milestone on Monday afternoon with a toast and Cardi B thanking her Bardi Gang for its grassroots efforts. The celebration also features a cake designed after a box of Louboutin heels, one of the leading references in the song. “These is red bottoms this is bloody shoes.”
