Cardi B Scores Third #1 On Hot 100 As Maroon 5 Collaboration ‘Girls Like You’ Blast To The Top

Published: Monday 24th Sep 2018 by Sam

Cardi B has done it again!

Together with Maroon 5, the rapper has rocketed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100 with ‘Girls Like You.’

Details on the blockbuster achievement below…

After six weeks at #2, the mega-hit climbs into the top spot on this week’s tally.

Its rise was powered by a 127.6 million radio audience, 21,000 downloads, and 25.4 million U.S. streams. All amassed in the latest tracking week.

A huge touch-down for both Maroon 5 and Cardi, here are a few key facts:

  • ‘Girls’ now stands as Cardi’s 3rd chart-topper. Belcalis’ previous wins are last year’s ‘Bodak Yellow’ and this summer’s ‘I Like It.’ All three were achieved within 12 months of each other! 
  • Cardi now becomes the first female rapper with three #1 Hot 100 hits!
  • It’s Maroon 5’s fourth #1. Their earlier chart-toppers are ‘Makes Me Wonder’ (2007), ‘Moves Like Jagger (ft. Christina Aguilera)’ (2011), and  ‘One More Night’ (2012) – the latter of which hit the top exactly one year ago to the day.

The news comes at an impeccable time for Adam Levine and co, who multiple sources say are headlining the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show next February.

Word is that Cardi will be joining them too, and after hitting the apex of the charts, her chances look even better!

  28. Selah September 24, 2018

    If Cardi’s label is buying all of these #1’s, why couldn’t Nicki’s do the same in 8 years? Face it, Cardi’s music is hot right now.

    Yawn! Next

  32. JOHNVIDAL September 24, 2018

    Nothing impressive about getting #1s by featuring in songs. I´m sorry, and especially these days. I´m not into rap but from what I know this girl doesn´t seem to be especially talented. Yes I know she is the one in fashion now. But it will end there. She is not a performer either. They will use her for a couple of years. That´s all.

    • Theprinceofchaos September 24, 2018

      Welp on that note..two of her #1s are her tracks soooooooo. Try the f*** again

    • Ejai September 24, 2018

      Most Nicki chart appearancs are features! Please stop! Lol

      • Selah September 24, 2018

        And she’s always bragging about her beating Aretha’s record for most Billboard Entries for a female artist. 97% of her entries are forgettable features that barely cracked the Hot 100 period.

    • Tori September 24, 2018

      No sweetie, there’s nothing impressive about doing 40 features from January to December and NONE of them reach #1.

  33. tika September 24, 2018

    Nice keep gettting it!

    these haters stay man!

    Must suck to be this bitter all the time you nicki fans! hahahaha

    NYC winning!

  34. Truthful September 24, 2018

    Her part in the song sucks so it wasn’t because of her.

    • Fancy BISH September 24, 2018

      You’ll see her at the Grammys and Super Bowl tho! Ya’ll trying SO HARD…awww, PO’ THANGS ?

      • Ejai September 24, 2018

        LMBO….po po thangs!

  35. You better know September 24, 2018

  40. Truth September 24, 2018

    Nicki said her self, competition why yes I’d love some. “Check it out” lyrics

  41. Ropeburn September 24, 2018

    And just think, everybody was clownin them on Twitter when Maroon 5 was announced as the headliner. Congrats to Cardi B. These haters can seeth. #NumbersDontLie

    • Lake Erie September 24, 2018

      • This and That September 24, 2018

        @ Selah ????

  43. Lake Erie September 24, 2018

    I knew it!! I BEEN called this! Lol!!! Congratulations Cardi B! And Maroon 5! Definitely well earned! Whether she’s featured or has her own set, she’ll definitely be at Superbowl 53! I am so happy for her! The constant running her name through the mud but YET she STILL comes out clean! #Goals asf! ?? She #BreakingBoundaries! ?

  44. Lou-Andrew Rodriguez September 24, 2018

    Are you kidding me!?

    This is actually a joke now Atlantic.


    • Fancy BISH September 24, 2018

      But Lou…it’s one of the top selling digital songs of the year! Please DO BETTER..or like Melania says, BE BEST lmaoo ?

  45. Kool September 24, 2018

    The crabs ? in her panties must be supper happy about this one

  46. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. September 24, 2018

    Puh-lease. That song was ALREADY HEADED TO NUMBER 1 WITHOUT Cardi. The original version without her sounds fantastic. She jumped on the 1st thing smokin’.

    • This and That September 24, 2018

      You are such a hater! ????. The song was nowhere near the top 20 before Cardi jumped on it! I love the meltdowns you clowns ? are having. You would think you are benefiting from it either way she wins or lose. Getting a fuccking life dummies!!

  47. BYISI September 24, 2018

    I don’t care what anyone says, 3#1’s this early in her career is impressive. I don’t enjoy her style but obviously others do. Poor Nicki is probably somewhere just over it ??, but you can’t stop a person’s shine if it’s meant to be. If she ever sells over a million albums, she’s going to be queen by default, she already is sorta with having 3#1’s!

  48. Spicy September 24, 2018

    Disgusting slag, billboard chart is meaningless now

  49. Yoni September 24, 2018


  50. Pop September 24, 2018

    She still looks like master splinter from the ninja turtles

  51. Banji September 24, 2018

    The decline in music and taste is upon us

  52. R.i.p September 24, 2018

    The death of billboard, sad day for talent and music.

  53. Really September 24, 2018

    Happy for Cardi but… That song offers literally nothing :rip:

  54. henny September 24, 2018

    He still a t***** crack head

  55. Karma September 24, 2018

    Poor Nicki. That trash of a video for barbie dreams and bitterness at Travis, Kylie and Cardi did nothing for her numbers. At 35, I think its safe to say she has peaked. The label isn’t giving the big budget videos to her anymore, radio isn’t backing her as hard anymore, the numbers are not cutting it and the US tour is in shambles. Nene said it best, you never win when you play dirty, or as Bey put it, its your soul that needs the surgery.

    • Kosher September 25, 2018

      I agree, the Barbie Dreams video while visually appealing could’ve made better by adding some cameos of the rappers mentioned. I also agree that while she has every right to speak her mind — the tone/demeanor of her rant post-album release left a bad taste in some peoples mouth.

      However, Nicki has always had longetivity in her vision. Early on she made investments and business deals (yes, even Kmart) that would give her a foothold in entertainment and provide her financial stability. If I recommend anything for Cardi it would be to follow that blueprint. The music industry is very fickle and the next “Wave” can come and she can be demoted.

  56. FAF September 24, 2018

    Shout out to : Adam Levine Henry Walter Brittany Talia Hazzard Jason Evigan Gian Stone for writing THEIR hit

    • Queen Missy ?? September 24, 2018

      Lol. Let the hate flow through you….

  57. Next September 24, 2018

    But the Song sucks

  58. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B September 24, 2018

    I love the song and video. Maroon 5 have some of the biggest hits in history and now Cardi is on one of them. Congrats to them both

  59. Bianca September 24, 2018

    its some mad ppl up in here lol. just because YOU don’t like something doesnt mean it doesn’t appeal the the WORLD.

  60. Patty September 24, 2018

    A s***** number 1 for a s***** wanna be rapper

  61. Oh September 24, 2018

    The lamest song to go number 1 this year

  62. Imo September 24, 2018

    They’re not even hiding the payola anymore

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine??‍♀️??‍♀️B September 24, 2018

      It’s not Cardi’s label. Maroon 5 just always has hits. Don’t be mad

  63. On go September 24, 2018

    It’s sad people support popularity not talent these days.

  64. Clive Christian September 24, 2018

    Nicki could NEVER. Cardi da official queen of rap.

  65. Okay September 24, 2018

    Pre opp trans are getting number 1s now?

    • Caleb September 24, 2018

      You talking about Adam Levine?

  66. Wig September 24, 2018

    Let me tell you! This 3rd #1 gotta be raising eyebrows from other artist in the music industry! They soon start speaking up on this fradualent sh*t! How a song is the lowest charting out of all streaming services and lowest in sales but radio points through the roof ??‍♂️

  67. Are you kidding me? September 24, 2018

    Nor a Beyonce fan, but you guys ate hella fake.

    Nobody wanted to give her credit for Mi Gente, but give Cardi credit for a “#1”?

    • Are you kidding me? September 24, 2018

      Not a Beyonce *

      • Are you kidding me? September 24, 2018

        Are hella fake *

        Cardi Fan typos smh

  68. Mimi Carey September 24, 2018

    Gratz dahling! Not everyone has a #1 hit to their name….

  69. Jason September 24, 2018

    Congratulations to her writers!! Y’all better used this chick to get these plaques! I’m here for it! #GospelTruth ??‍♂️

  70. I HATE WHYYTE N BLACCK BITCHEZZZZ both not ish September 24, 2018

    Its not her song. Its maroon. 5

    • Kosher September 25, 2018

      As a credited featured artist the song would be considered partly hers as well. So any accolades the song receives she would be entitled to as well.

  71. Mizz B**** September 24, 2018

    Her writers better capitalize on this and rush that next single

  72. KillMonger Was Right (Tyler) September 24, 2018

    Cardi won. She’s the reigning queen of rap right now.

  73. Wonder Woman September 24, 2018

    “Cardi, she just mad cause you took the spot”

    And her barfs are mad too

  74. Justafan September 24, 2018

    Hahaha!!! Nicki is so bothered

  75. #TeamTinashe Stan September 24, 2018

    When will Nicholas?

    • Aretha Franklin September 25, 2018

      Never haha

  76. Kosher September 25, 2018

    Damn, some of these comments are so biased.

    Congrats to Maroon 5 and Cardi B. While it is true that the song might’ve hit #1 even without Cardi due to the immense amount of views the video received (fueled by all the guest appearances in the video) a win is a win.

    It’s crazy that two people cannot co-exist in the same space without belittling the other. Everyone comes and mentions Nicki under Cardi post and vice versa. Nicki has hit milestones and has plenty of “first” to her name — it is nearly impossible to be the first or the only in every category. Similarly, Cardi (while 3 #1’s in such a short time is astonishing) has a lot of ground to cover to be considered “QUEEN” of anything.

    The barbz the first ones to get their panties tied up under a Cardi post, and the Bardigang the first ones to wild out under a Nicki post. I think it is completely possible to enjoy them both, and the internet just feeds the drama. Nicki throws subliminals and Cardi doesn’t write — but at the end of the day, two FEMALE hip-hop/rap artist are very present in the music conversation, which is something to applaud regardless.
