Chart Check [Hot 100]: Cardi B Nabs First Top 30 Hit With ‘Bodak Yellow’

Cardi B Becomes the ONLY 'Love & Hip Hop' Star To Land a Solo Top 30 Hit on the Hot 100 Since Show's Inception
Published: Wednesday 2nd Aug 2017 by Rashad

Other than being talented, highly sought after rapstresses, what’s something Young MA, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B now all have in common?  They’re the only female rap artists this decade to have at least one top 30 to their names by their lonesomes, that’s what.

Cardi, the latest addition to the female rap club, is painting the charts ‘Bodak Yellow’ thanks to some handsome streams and digital sales of the cut.  After premiering on the tally just three weeks ago, as we reported here, the braggadocious bop – B’s career Hot 100 debut – has already leaped over 50 spots to lay claim to the #28.  And, if the hype around the tune is any indication of where it’s headed, we predict it’ll crack the top 20 next week.

Until we know for sure, tuck in below to see who joins the ‘Love & Hip Hop’ alum in the top 30 on this week’s refreshed ‘TGJ Chart Check’:


Hot 100 This Week


Note:  Iggy Azalea, Missy Elliott, and Remy Ma have all earned top 30 hits this decade, but each of those entries featured other artists.

    • YesMaaam August 2, 2017

      It ain’t shade if it’s true @icritic

      Remy doesn’t have a solo top 30

      • iCritic August 2, 2017

        Missy had Pharrel tho. Its Remy record regardless yall just tryna shade her yet give Spongebob a pass. Cool tho! Nicki breaking Queen Arethas record with features aint nothing special since most of them hits were no solo then…*sips tea*

    Yass Cardi and Remy are coming to RINSE Nicki for good! Kimmy was out shooting a mystery music video… #RealFemaleRap is back!!

    • king z August 2, 2017

      i’m no barb (well not officially any way) but yall gotta know that even if nicki fell off super hard right now, no other female rapper is touching her stats

      the girl has MULTIPLE #1 albums and more entries on the hot 100 than any other female artist.

      • iCritic August 2, 2017

        Who cares…Nicki done turned the hip hop game into some white validation pop f****ery. Her music aint quality and legendary enough to transcend her success. Look at all the greats of music. Michael Jackson and Madonna to name a few; their music was timeless and people talk about how their music moved them before they talked about how successful, how rich.and famous they are. Nicki just cant relate! Sorry. No classics in her vault unless you a hardcore barb. She has done nothing to elevate hip hop music except put a check in her pocket.

    Actually wasn’t Omarion the first? Then Remy?

    • king z August 3, 2017

      omarion was first, but he had features
      remy was next, but the song was fat joe’s

      • Amoe August 3, 2017

        All the way up isn’t Fat joes song it’s a joint album , its both of their song

    • AmbeRussell August 3, 2017

      It says solo as in only 1 person on the track, not a feature or a shared single. And we Ade talking about after being on the show, not what they did in 2005, like omarion.

  5. Ashanti #1 Fan August 3, 2017

    Didn’t iggy azalea bank get a number on date song on billboard

    • king z August 3, 2017

      her song had a feature

    “Cardi B Becomes the ONLY ‘Love & Hip Hop’ Star To Land a Top 40 on the Hot 100 Since Show’s Inception”

    So Remy Ma “All the Way Up” wasn’t Top 40, That Grape Juice? Pretty sure it was…#27, last year in fact.

    • AmbeRussell August 3, 2017

      But you missed one word. It says SOLO.

  7. Cardi’sDaNewQueen August 3, 2017

    Damn i wish you people could read!!! Cardi is the ONLY LHH STAR TO HAVE A SOLO TOP 30 HIT. K michelle has never had one period, remy and omarion had features to help them.

    nobody has gotten to the top 30 on the strength of their own merit but CARDI

    STOP USING FEATURES to justify arguments

  8. DanYiel Iman August 3, 2017

    Why the hate? It all started from LHHNY!! ?

  9. Realestinthebando August 3, 2017

    Lol! This blog low key shades Remy while praising Cardi for having a “solo” hit yet were the first to praise Nicki for having the most billboard hits when most of them sh!ts were FEATURES! ?Issa joke!! Onika payola is real.

  10. So Fresher August 3, 2017

    What about Dej LOaf “Try Me”??? Hmmm

      “ONLY ‘Love & Hip Hop’ Star To Land a Top 40”
      “ONLY ‘Love & Hip Hop’ Star”
      ‘Love & Hip Hop’ Star”

      God Y’all Don’t Comprehend For ?Nowadays! ?????_/_/_/_/_/_/_/

      • Realestinthebando August 3, 2017

        You’re dumb. Anybody with a brain who knows real hip hop sees the hidden agenda through this post. It’s meant to shade Remy, period. They even went so far as to edit it several times after being called out. ?

  11. Lake Erie August 3, 2017

    Congratulations Cardi!!!! I hope she hit’s the top 10. The song is fire.

  12. Justafan August 3, 2017

    Omg ppl, please READ the article in full before popping off. Key word: SOLO

  13. King z August 3, 2017

    ^^ not true. I saw this story last nite and this mornin game…no changes. Y’all just can’t handle the truth and read everything as shade

    • King z August 3, 2017

      This comment was for the guy who said they edited the story repeatedly after being called out

      How is that so when last nite u can see me comment multiple times telling people about features

      • Realistinthebando August 3, 2017

        First off, they never mentioned Remy name when it first posted. Then after the first comment, they switched up and added Remy’s name in the ” Other than being talented, highly sought after rapstresses, what’s something Young MA, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B now all have in common?” part. THEN FINALLY they removed Rem’s name altogether. highlighted and underlined the ” by their lonesomes” part. Since when does TGJ praise female rappers for “solo efforts” all of a sudden?? The answer: PAYOLA.
