Official: Cardi B Becomes First Female Rapper With Two Hot 100 #1 Singles

Published: Monday 2nd Jul 2018 by Rashad


Nearly a year after storming onto the scene with her history-making debut single, ‘Bodak Yellow,’ rapstress Cardi B sees her name colored atop the Hot 100 once more.

The move not only gives her a second run at #1 from her debut album, ‘Invasion of Privacy,’ but also sees her etched in history books among female rappers overall.

Details inside:

Via Billboard:

Cardi BBad Bunny and Balvin‘s “I Like It” lifts from No. 2 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, granting Cardi B an unprecedented feat in the chart’s history, as she becomes the first female rapper with two No. 1s. She first reigned with her debut hit, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” for three weeks beginning Oct. 7, 2017.

Thanks to “Bodak Yellow” and now “Like,” Cardi B passes four female rappers who previously topped the tally with one No. 1 apiece: Lauryn Hill, Lil’ Kim, with “Lady Marmalade,” Shawnna, as featured on Ludacris’ “Stand Up” (one, 2003); and, Iggy Azalea, with “Fancy,” featuring Charli XCX.

Cardi B is the first female soloist with two Hot 100 No. 1s from a debut album this decade, and the first since Lady Gaga, whose The Fame generated “Just Dance,” featuring Colby O’Donis (three weeks on top), and “Poker Face” (one), both in 2009

If only she wasnt obsessed with Thiefyonce,those billion singles and features from the China plastic doll wouldn’t have flooped harder than Everything is flop..

  10. NOBITCHASSNESS July 2, 2018

    Well it was 68cents to buy it.
    Atlantic literally gave this to her.

    Happy for her though.

    • Jasmine (The Real Jasmine) July 2, 2018

      it only costs 99 cents for a song so 68 cents means 31 cents discount. U counting pennies girl but forgetting about all that radio play and streamining that got her a number 1.

  11. The Empress July 2, 2018

    Cardi B is officially the Queen of Rap. Period.

    • whut July 2, 2018

      Lol lets not get carried away. This forum is the main place where folks always shout about how #1s dont mean anything-until their fave gets one. Congrats for Cardi, but she has a few million more albums to sell before she can get that title. And I do mean sell, not stream. Her flow also needs MAJOR work done before she can be put on a Queen level in hip hop.

      • Ri Ri July 2, 2018


      • Keith July 2, 2018

        Yessir, said the congregation. Im still betting against longevity and depth in her career…

      • Cbeylive July 2, 2018

        Streaming and selling are the same thing.

      • Ejai July 2, 2018

        Haterade is what I smell from you! Lol

    • Bodaky Yakky July 2, 2018

      Even with that “flow”, your fave still could not and will never do what Cardi has. TWO whole #1 singles and a #1 album. Yeah you’re shook, sis.

  12. DIABETES UNBOTHERED July 2, 2018

    2 #1s while Nikki has 0 not even with 1000+ FEATURES ? ???? LOL GRANDMA NIKKI should just file for early Retirement… The “?” album will flop hard just like bardi tings and Done Li ?

    • Ri Ri July 2, 2018

      Chun Li made it to #10 on the Hot 100 that’s not considered a flop.

      • Bodaky Yakky July 2, 2018

        It is when it’s not #1 and you’re the “queen”. #DoneLi

    • Yolanda July 2, 2018

      Not just features. Features with AAAAAAAA-Listers. Nicki’s so-called best feature ever couldn’t do it—MONSTER!

    • Meiz July 2, 2018

  16. Yan July 2, 2018

    truly iconic. Also a huge feat for the featured artists

  17. Jeans July 2, 2018

  18. F You July 2, 2018

    That’s a lie.Rihanna had 3#1’s in 2010 from her LOUD album, what’s my name,Only girl,and S and M.Billboard needs to stop lying.

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED July 2, 2018

      All FORGOTTEN… ? Even Rih-SCHEDULED doesn’t perform them anymore on her many FLOP TOURS ?. Roh doesn’t even like her own music anymore hence the long extended breaks and still FLOPS and now playing Extras in random movies ?

    • Drinkmybussyjuice July 2, 2018

      FROM A DEBUT ALBUM SIS. Loud was not a debut.

  19. stan July 2, 2018

    i KNEW it was going to chart high. this song is perfect for the summer.

  20. Kenhern July 2, 2018

    Another thing Nicki doesn’t have. Another number one ???

    • Fancy BISH July 2, 2018

      I read your comment in Mariah’s voice ?

  21. Queen Misdamenor July 2, 2018

    The only thing left for Chunk-EE to do now is to make up with the other female rappers that she once dissed and try to pull off a collab she hasn’t tried from her other 264156545 collaborations.

    • Yolanda July 2, 2018

      YEAH! Nicki spent her career calling Lil Kim old when Lil Kim was 34-35 in 2010 BUT now she’s 35 and cant handle the “old” title. Did she think she would be young forever? She’s lucky Cardi aint calling her old. When Nicki argues, she brings up her catalogue BUT told Lil Kim to stop living in the past while she kept stealing Lil Kim’s past and present.

      • Queen Missy ?? July 2, 2018

        Truth! I remember saying that the same thing 8 years ago. Cardi is too nice to make a song Called Stupid Slore. Now who is looking like a damn monkey.

  22. Bravo!! July 2, 2018

    Even though I speak no English but I love Bad Bunny. But his song “Soy Poer” is nice. I can’t wait till his get his dues in America.

    • Bravo!! July 2, 2018

      I speak no Spanish*

  23. Blak1 July 2, 2018

    Congrats Cardi!

  24. Erica July 2, 2018

    And it seems like the song with Maroon 5 will number soon too

  25. HOWYOULIKEIT July 2, 2018

    I wish Missy Elliott also had a #1 song

    • Yolanda July 2, 2018

      Missy Elliott produced Lady Marmalade Mouline Rouge #1 Hot 100 and Katy Perry’s Remix TGIF #1 Hot 100.

    • Queen Missy ?? July 2, 2018

      Missy produced #1s and has Grammysssssss.

  26. KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) July 2, 2018

    Say it one more time for the people in the back! Nicki needs to finally hang it up. Nobody’s checking for her but the kids

    • July 2, 2018

      You are mad delusional.

  27. DanYiel Iman July 2, 2018

    I say congratulations but what her Andy Nicki Minaj do isn’t considered Rap IMO…

  28. Thando July 2, 2018

    Cardi, Cardi, Cardi. I don’t want to undermine her success BUT do you think her being light-skinned and Latina helped her get these two #1s after other Black female rappers have tried and failed so much. I mean do Foxy Brown, Eve, Missy Elliot, Lil Kim (excluding lady marmalade) have solo #1s? I’m sure a lot of people would agree that they are better than Cardi yet they all failed where she has. Is it a light skin thing or is it a well-earned #1?

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️ July 2, 2018

      She ain’t light skinned she’s caramel. I just think she’s poppin and with social media and streaming it’s helped her a lot. All those other rappers have classic music, something cardi diesnt, and they’re phenomenal lyrical rappers- cardi is not. But she earned her numbers 1s so

    • Yolanda July 3, 2018

      Cardi cant even admit to luck and timing. She really wants to believe that it is ALL due to hard work. If Remy did not come out with Shether and break Nicki’s entire persona, Cardi couldnt have slipped in. Remy broke Nicki’s BET winning streak and said on stage that Cardi was next. When Remy dropped Shether and put Cardi on that Summer Jam stage, Cardi was able to break through–timing, luck, light skin, and hard work.

      • Caleb July 3, 2018

        So do you believe that Cardi wouldn’t have been able to come up if it weren’t for the Nicki-Remy beef?

    • Caleb July 3, 2018

      I don’t think it’s fair to use the word “failed”. Artists don’t necessarily set out with the intention of making a particular single #1 single on the hot 100. It just kind of happens. Many many artists never have a hot 100 #1 and sell millions of albums and have successful tours. People act like the hot 100 is the only chart that matters but the hip-hop/r&b chart is important too. And as for Lauryn Hill it’s hard to argue that she “tried” to get a second #1 single as she never released an album again after her first one was such a MASSIVE seller that has sold more than most rappers entire discographies.
