Cardi B Eyes Billboard Hot 100 #1 Spot With ‘Bodak Yellow’?

Published: Tuesday 8th Aug 2017 by David


Cardi B is far removed from her days as a stripper and her time on the series ‘Love & Hip Hop: New York.’

Now, as she seeks and finds credibility as a rapper, she celebrates the success of her jam ‘Bodak Yellow’ which now seems to be on its way to rocking the Billboard Hot 100’s Top 5!


Doing so without the benefit of a featuring act Cardi’s brilliant feat carves out a glistening path for the album she is recording to support the single and the career her label, Atlantic Records, hopes to build out of it.

Why do you think Afro-Latina starlet is faring so well?

    Congrats!!!! You deserve it! ?

  2. Achooo! August 8, 2017

    Good for her! I hope she invest in further education and speech classes.

    • i_Ronic92 August 8, 2017

      Cardi B is educated, and her dialect is a reflection of the culture she was raised in. Maybe you should invest in cultural diversity classes and not be a BIGOT.

      • Linear August 8, 2017

        Shut up you internet SJW buffoon, you. Cardi B. sounds like a cliche idiot when she speaks. Her dialect is borderline abominable; bad enough to make most people not want to take anything she says seriously…and that’s not even taking into account that stupid s-hit she actually says. That this idiot is actually having success is reason #2,870 why music is dead.

    • Fancy BISH August 8, 2017

      Cardi got that Tony Montana flow lol…I love it ❤️

    Congrats Mama! I see big things for this girl… she just may become the Princess of Rap if she keeps putting out fire. I hope single #2 slays, as well. Sidenote: It’s very rare to see two female rappers occupy the top 15 of the Hot 100 simultaneously. It’s also rare that they embrace each other like Cardi and Nicki has done on IG. I smell a collab brewing.

    • John August 8, 2017

      They did not embrace each other. Cardi B is just keeping her enemies close.

    • John August 8, 2017

      Did Nicki Minaj have back-to-back hits on Pink Friday? As I recall, Right Through Me and Check It Out were not great followups to Your Love. It wasn’t until Taylor Swift shouted out Super Bass that Pink Friday really took off. (And then, in true Nicki form, she dissed Taylor Swift.)

      • Caleb August 8, 2017

        You are giving Taylor WAY too much credit.

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler August 8, 2017

      Cardi said that Nicki was rude to her on the red carpet…

      • August 9, 2017

        another lie, which haters and the media made up, something you happily pass along because it’s Nicki someone you don’t like.

      • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler August 9, 2017

        Nobody made s*** up. Cardi said that herself on ig live

    • Team Keysh August 9, 2017

      A snippet of #2 is on her ig….sounds heat! ?

  4. Gee August 8, 2017

    Congratulations Cardi here’s to being great.

  5. Coolio August 8, 2017

    She not even saying anything but its hot

  6. NOFRAUDSoniTunes August 8, 2017

    Nicki is unbothered

    • DanYiel Iman August 8, 2017

      Especially since her entire CAREER is based off of Lil’Kim the Queen of RAP!! ✌??

      • Electrikblue August 9, 2017

        If that’s the case Lol Kim should be lit and still on the charts etc. You’re pressed

  7. 2Bad2Bme August 8, 2017

    She is just relate-able and like-able. Take notes Tinashe, she is a light skinned mixed girl too and with an accent and can still make people like her. Some people just have “it” and some just don’t.

    • LISA August 8, 2017

      Honey, she a Latina, a hood-rat latina, but a Latina never-the-less. She lacks talent but has PERSONALITY and she puts in Marketing work. Work Hunnie

      • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler August 8, 2017

        No, she’s mixed. Half Latina and half West Indian. Her mom is Trini

  8. Jeans August 8, 2017

    CONGRATS!!!!!!! Love this song!

  9. Dopecommentsbymarc242 August 8, 2017

    Look at Cardi! Go get em! Love that you and Nicki showed love to each other on IG! Look at Nicki at #12 oh s*** and the video ain’t even out yet

    • John August 8, 2017

      No Gotti is at #12 and Tidal is cheating the streams. Rake It Up is #35-39 on Itunes All Genres chart so this song is collecting Tidal fraudulent streams.

      • August 9, 2017

        I bet if the song flop it would have been Nicki song in yall eyes when the song is winning it’s not Nicki’s song and then when the song is losing it’s Nicki’s song. man, you haters never rest.

  10. pat August 8, 2017

    probably so and It’s dope…. took long enough for a new black girl (yes latinos can be black) to show up as the voice for her generation…. these others heaux old now..let cardi shine

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler August 8, 2017

      Duh she’s Dominican and Trini. Considers herself mixed/afro Latina.

      • Swedish fish August 11, 2017

        She never says mixed she always says BLACK

  11. NT August 8, 2017

    If Bad and Boujee could be number 1 so can Bodak Yellow

  12. Fancy BISH August 8, 2017

    Nicki KILLED that Rake It Up verse….I can admit when I’m wrong lol…..slay Cardi B! Come on female rap! Yaaaaaaaas ???

  13. Ciah’s Turtle August 8, 2017

    Werkkkkkk Sis!

  14. John August 8, 2017

    Cardi B’s Bodak Yellow has been miles ahead of Rake It Up on Itunes All Genres Chart so how did it post higher on Billboard. Tidal is a fraud.

  15. XoMoDe August 8, 2017

    No, thanks. Cardi B. is the text book definition of ridiculous.

  16. Hokeypokey August 8, 2017

    Nicki Showin’ Fake Love To Cardi B. The Video Nicki ReTweeted Was About Nicki’s Song In The Cardi B Crowd! Im Not Stupid!! She’s Tryin’ To Show Love, But Bein’ Shady @ The Same Time. Nicki Has No Choice But To “Show Love” Because Nicki Will Look Bitter & Leave A Bad Taste In A Lot Of Ppl’s Mouths If Nicki Don’t Show Love Or Unity Right Now. Nicki Did This In The Beginnin’ Of Her Career With LiL Kim! Cardi B Better Not Fall Into Her Trap Because NICKI WANTS TO BE THE ONLY FEMALE RAPPER KILLIN’ THE GAME, So Nicki Will Do Whatever It Is To Maintain Her Title At Any Means Necessary!!

    • August 8, 2017

      shut the fck up you are so damn negative, you want everyone to beef with Nicki so bad, so you can continue this negative lying narrative that Nicki don’t fck with other female rappers.

      • Hokeypokey August 8, 2017

        I’m Not Puttin’ Females Against Each Other Nor Am I Bein’ Negative! Im Simply Statin’ What I See. Nicki Knows Exactly What She’s Doin’. If You Don’t See It, Then It’s Obvious You Don’t Listen/Dissect Nicki’s Music Which Makes You A Sheep. Nicki Needs Sheeps Like You To Keep The Money Flowin’ & Relavancy Poppin’! Nicki Is Known For “Givin’ Female Rappers Their Props” Yet Throw Subliminal Shade @ The Same Time. Check The Roster.

    • Hokeypokey August 8, 2017

      *by any means

      • Electrikblue August 9, 2017

        Never seen her throw shade at Trina. They always show each other love

      • John August 9, 2017

        Nicki Minaj never threw shade at Trina because Trina was from Miami and that is where Birdman, Lil Wayne, Slim relocated. It would have been against the city to turn on Trina.

  17. August 8, 2017

    gratz to her.

  18. DanYiel Iman August 8, 2017

    Can’t be mad at her she started out on LHH & ended on the billboard charts!!
