Cardi B Hits #1, Is The First Solo Female Rapper To Do It Since 1998

Great but crap.

Not only did Cardi B win NYFW, but she also won #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 with ‘Bodak Yellow’ โ€” and not 24 hours later she went platinum. This is great news. We need more of this. On the downer, it’s the first time a lady rapper has been at the top, with no features, since Lauryn Hill’s ‘Doo-Wop (That Thing)’ in 1998. 1998!!

In fact, only three other female rappers have hit that spotโ€ฆ ever. And they’ve all been with features: Lil’ Kim, Mya, Christina and P!nk for ‘Lady Marmalade’, Shawnna and Ludacris for ‘Stand Up’ and Iggy Azalea and Charli XCX for ‘Fancy’. Ugh.

This make’s Cardi B’s achievements so damn hot. Obviously, everyone is really stoked for her:

And then…

So nice!
