Cardi B’s ‘Bodak Yellow’ Impacts British Charts

Published: Wednesday 23rd Aug 2017 by David

Cardi B‘s ‘Bodak Yellow’ is undeniably the song of the summer.

Unleashed as part of her arrangement with the thriving Atlantic Records, the single recently gave the rapper and her fans cause to celebrate when it reached #3 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Before that though, perhaps unbeknownst to said fans, the song took its first few steps on British chart soil last week.

Good news below…

Though modest, ‘Yellow’s entry saw it swing into action at #96 by way of sales and streams garnered by the British public who are yet to receive a single televised performance of the song in the market.

Good stuff.

However, we fear that like Trinidad James, Young M.A., Dej Loaf and Iggy Azalea, Cardi runs the risk of being hot for one summer if she doesn’t plant unshakeable roots in the game with a supporting album soon.

For, while ‘Yellow’s success is the talk of the town now, there’s no denying that the scene’s fickle nature may soon see her plagued by one-hit wonder status if her album’s sales suffer as a result of her not being able to follow ‘Yellow‘ with a hit just as impactful.

With this in mind, we’d say the best way for Cardi to secure success beyond ‘Bodak’ is for her to remember that she rose to fame as a personality before she was taken seriously as a rapper.

This isn’t a bad thing…it’s just her thing.

Should she realise the value in this, the 20-something could easily enjoy a career similar to Grace Jones‘ (or Rosie Perez‘) where musically-charged forays into fashion and film allow her to soar as a multi-hyphenate entertainer, and not a merely rapper whose relevancy is defined by how high her numbers fly when compared to Nicki Minaj‘s.

    Who really cares if it doesn’t pop there? It’s poppin here and the us is a bigger market anyway. No one gives a damn about the U.K. Charts 🙄

      It’s the third largest market in the world…so I’m sure a few artists care.

    Whom ever is suppose to be booking things for her is truly slacking. She made money from love and hip hop, and got her name out there, so these little club promotions ain’t it. She GOTTA do bigger things at this point. Go on the late night talk shows, interviews with magazines, BC let’s be for real, going to the clubs ain’t gonna get your song #1 on the charts. Its gonna get u no hype, but some hood love. Those people already got your song and know it. You don’t sell your product to people who already got it. And I’m not saying abandon the real fans, but she gotta make her rounds to non Cardi fans and get them to bump to the music too on Spotify, buying it from itunes, etc. BC she gotta stop despecito from being #1 for 16 weeks. They can’t tie with one sweet day
