Cardi B Becomes the First Female Rapper with Two Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s
At just 25-years-old, the Invasion of Privacy artist is making hip-hop history.
Also known as Belcalis Almanzar, Cardi B is now the first female rapper with two Billboard Top 100 No. 1s since the massive success of her recent song “I Like It” with Bad Bunny and J Balvin. She first scored the No. 1 Billboard slot with her breakout hit “Bodak Yellow” on October 7th of last year, and the jam retained its rank for a solid three weeks.
Thank you to my entire team and to the Bardi Gang for another #1 record!!! You all work so hard and I appreciate every one of you for everything you do for my music and my business! A huge thank you to @jbalvin and @badbunnypr for being apart of this moment!! Thank you to the entire team over at Atlantic Records!! Thank you to @jwhitedidit for producing another hit!!

The young rapper rejoiced at her achievement in an Instagram video, exclaiming, “No. 1! I’m No. 1! I’m No. 1! I’m No. 1! And I’m about to give birth, birth, birth, birth,” and twerking on her bed.
This huge milestone in Cardi’s career is certainly cause for excitement, and to top it off, she is, in fact, expecting her first child with husband Offset any day now. With this groundbreaking accomplishment under her belt, she should feel ready to conquer motherhood without breaking a sweat.
