Consider it a cultural celebration: Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” single has finally hit number one on Billboard’s Hot 100. Cardi makes history as the first solo female rap single to reach No. 1 on the Hot 100 since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” did so in 1998.
In addition, the record has also been streamed over 40 million times across all streaming platforms. J. Cole was the latest to show praise for the Bronx rapper.
Also Cardi b I seen your breakfast club interview, loved it. Don’t put all that pressure on your album. You already won. Just drop & repeat
