Holy Wow She Did it, Cardi B Takes Number One

Cardi B's 'Bodak Yellow' Hits Number 1 on Billboard Hot 100

Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" to third place after three weeks at the top. "There were many debates as to who would rule the chart this week as 'Bodak Yellow" s popularity continued to soar.

Cardi B has made history this week, becoming the first female rapper to top Billboard's Hot 100 chart without a feature in almost 19 years. Watch that below, via The Fader. Anyone with an investment in a true come-up story was tweeting to stream "Bodak Yellow", while Swift fans insisted on "LWYMMD streaming parties" to keep her single on top.

The last rapper to do so was Lauryn Hill in 1998, when "Doo Wop (That Thing)" ruled the charts for two weeks. "Bodak Yellow" shows women everywhere that the world is changing. "I'ma give you a record".

Earlier this week, a video surfaced on Twitter that showcased Cardi B singing "Look What You Made Me Do" in the back of a hired vehicle with a female friend. To you, and, of course, to Cardi.

Cardi B has officially made it to the top spot on Billboard's Hot 100.

It is not just any woman who can knock Taylor Swift from No. 1.

Looks like Cardi hasn't let the success go to her head; she remains just as humble and as boisterous as her first appearances on Love & Hip-Hop, only now she's got the achievements to back up the big talk. Cardi, born Belcalis Almanzar, is also the first person of Dominican descent to reach no.1 in the history of the Billboard Hot 100, since it was launched in 1958.
