Cardi B Becomes The First Female Rapper To Land Two #1 Hits
She did it (again)! Cardi B makes history by becoming the first female rapper to land two number one hits. The Bronx superstar famously nabbed a chart-topper with major label debut single, “Bodak Yellow,” and now returns to pole position with “I Like It.” The Latin/trap banger, which features Bad Bunny and J Balvin, first cracked the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year as a buzz track for Invasion Of Privacy. That performance was enough to ensure it got a full roll out over the summer.
Impressively, Cardi B’s third number one isn’t far off. She features on Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You,” which is already top five and edging ever closer to the top of the charts. That would put her even further ahead than Lil Kim, Iggy Azalea and Remy Ma (as part of Terror Squad), who all have one chart-topper in their respective discographies. (Believe it or not, Missy Elliott and Nicki Minaj are yet to land a number one hit). Check out the rapper’s summer smash, “I Like It,” below.
