Cardi B has made history yet again with the summer banger, “Bodak Yellow.”

This time around, the Bronx rapstress obtained her most monstrous accolade yet. Cardi’s “Bodak Yellow” has moved from #2 to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making Cardi the first female rapper in almost 19 years to top the Billboard Hot 100 without the assistance of a featured artist.

The last female artist to accomplish such a feat was Lauryn Hill in 1998 with “Doo Wop (That Thing).”

Prior to reaching #1 this week, “Bodak Yellow” spent 11 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. Cardi’s debut single was first spotted on the chart at #85 on the week of July 22.

Despite the massive success of “Bodak Yellow,” few details regarding the release of Cardi’s debut album have surfaced.

As the 24-year-old Cardi continues in her quest to make “money moves,” she recorded a thank you video straight from the airport, thanking fans, radio personalities, and all those have showed their support for “Bodak Yellow.”

News of Cardi B’s Billboard slay comes as another female MC puts on for the genre. Last week, Rapsody dropped her second studio album, Laila’s Wisdom.
