Cardi B Makes Hot 100 History After ‘MotorSport’ Drives Into Top 10

Published: Monday 18th Dec 2017 by Sam

Cardi B is making breaking records look like child’s play. Case in point her almost weekly slays on the Billboard Hot 100.

Having topped the tally for three weeks with ‘Bodak Yellow’ and then earned a top 10 as part of G-Eazy’s ‘No Limit,’ Cardi has now notched another win. One that sees her make history.

Details below…

On this week’s chart, Migos’ ‘MotorSport’ (which features both Cardi and Nicki Minaj) races #15-#6 – following the arrival of its hotly anticipated video.

The release wracked up 31.7 million US streams, 15,000 digital downloads, and amassed a radio audience of 35 million.

While a win for all involved, the feat is especially epic for Cardi.

Because she becomes the first female rapper in Hot 100 history to reach the top 10 with each of her first three chart entries.


At this point, she’s not just showing, she proving! The female rap landscape is collectively shapeshifting in way that is more interesting than it has been in a long while. And where “here” for it!

      I’m pretty sure Sam means her first three commercial label singles. There’s a difference to just releasing a song and releasing a commercial single. That’s like counting Nicki Minaj’s “I Get Crazy” back in 2009 as her first commercial single when it’s not.

      Because she becomes the first female rapper in Hot 100 history to reach the top 10 with each of her first three chart entries. FIRST THREE CHART ENTRIES!

      Reading is key.

    • TAMMAH December 18, 2017

      Cardi’s First Official Single Was Bodak Yellow. Lick, Red Barz, Foreva, Pull Up, Washpoppin’, Etc. Doesn’t Count Because Cardi Was Not Signed To Atlantic Records Durin’ That Time. Those Singles Were Were Done Independently.

    Cardi is doing everything Azealia Banks tried to do lol…it must hurt Miss Stanks deeply! PO THANG!

    She’s here to stay

    Perfect example of striking while the iron is hot. Cardi dropped a very catchy song Bodak..when it blew up everyone wanted to feature her. Now that everyone’s still waiting for new music the songs she features on are blowing up cause folks are eager to hear more. Not to mention the songs she’s on are also catchy. I personally think Nicki and Cardi make the Motorsport song a hit

    • XYZ December 18, 2017

      To be honest, if the song would just be the two of them, it would be way better. Migos are so lame with their mumbling

    • Abel Minaj December 18, 2017

      They do, the was always about them. Honestly, Migos should’ve just sang the hook and done a few adlibs in the background cuz their verses really don’t do anything. Cardi and Nicki make the song period.

      • Faf December 18, 2017

        Yeah but don’t forget they had a #1 with bad and boujee they’re hot now

        This could very well go #1 especially if they perform it

    I love Cardi, but we have to stop rewarding artists with accolades they only receive as the result of their work alongside OTHER featured artists!

    • erica December 18, 2017

      yall do it for nicki all the time

    • December 19, 2017

      no, you can’t say that because she is on the song so she gets that credit, right now if this song goes to 1 it would be Nicki’s first 1 song on the hot 100. and Cardi’s second. the song is a joint effort the credit goes to all 5 of them. even though the song was originally one of the migos and Nicki the end of the day all of them made it on the song so the credit goes to all of them.

  6. The Wig Snatcher December 18, 2017

    Nicki Minaj needed Cardi B for another top 10 song this year. Kiiiiiiiiiiiii

    • Caleb December 18, 2017

      Actually this song is top 10 because of the 3 big artists on one song. The song itself is nothing spectacular and if you took Nicki or Cardi off I doubt it’d be top 10 right now.

  7. Yolanda December 18, 2017

    Migos had a #1 with Bad & Boujee. Cardi had a #1 with Bodak Yellow. Nicki’s been in the game longer and never had a #1. This is horrendous for Nicki’s career. There is no other way to spin this. Nicki better pass that freaking 10-year crown over. Simply horrendous.

    • Ohpippy December 18, 2017

      #FACTS!!!! I Love me some Nicki but if this song goes to number 1 … smh..

    • IssaDemigod December 18, 2017

      Not really. None of the artists you named have number 1 albums as nicki does. I mean one of the newcomers you’ve mentioned doesn’t even have an album at all….nicki Minaj and Lauryn Hill remain the only female rappers in history to ever top billboards hot 200 albums chart so…..

      • Caleb December 18, 2017

        Foxy Brown topped that chart you speak of in 2001. So did Eve in 1999 and that’s just two I can think of off-hand.

      • IssaDemigod December 18, 2017

        Sorry. Not according to billboard toots. Foxy peaked at #5 in 2001 with broken silence. Pink Friday and it’s successors are legendary billboard. ??‍♂️

    • Abel Minaj December 18, 2017

      Why do y’all care about whether or not she has a number one song. She has songs that have literally outsold their discographies. 3 multiplatinum albums. When will any of them do it???? You swear that placing at number 1 makes a song bigger than any song in history that didn’t and it’s simply not true. OMG Nicki Minaj doesn’t have a number 1!!!!!! Let’s ignore every other accomplishment this woman has made in her career and claim this new chick is better because it’s the 1 thing she has. When Cardi’s album bombs come back and talk about how far that number 1 carried her

    • Justincredible December 18, 2017

      The fact she had 10 years is a joke in itself

    • XYZ December 19, 2017

      Not a Nicki fan, but no. 1s are not everything. She has proven some longevity and became a major player in the game. She is doing fine, people want features with her and she is successful. So what she doesn’t have a no. 1? There are a lot of legends who didn‘t have as many numbers 1 as others, who no one thinks about anymore

    • December 19, 2017

      dude, you sound ignorant, you want to knock Nicki Minaj for not having a 1 song on the hot 100, right now I bet if credit or the migos could trade there 1hit song for Nicki’s career accomplishments they would do it without a second thought. dude, you clearly don’t know Nicki’s resume, or just playing ignorant.

  8. IssaDemigod December 18, 2017

    Iggy Azalea did this already. #fakenews
    They’re truly destined for the same future I see.

    • Caleb December 18, 2017

      No she didn’t. She had her fist 2 in top 10 not 3.

  9. Ocean December 19, 2017

    First 3 charting but like Nicki she too has flopped singles released this year
