According to Billboard, Cardi B is the first female rapper to rule without any features since Lauryn Hill in 1998. The fact that Cardi topped the chart without any features says a lot within itself and even more about her as a female rapper.
The 24-year-Old rapper is only the 5th female rapper to lead The Hot 100, her debut hit “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” rises from No. 2 to No. 1 on the latest chart (dated Oct. 7).
Cardi B is also the first female solo artist to top The Hot 100 with a debut track without a featured artist since Meghan Trainor, whose “All About That Bass” led for eight weeks straight beginning Sept. 20, 2014.
Cardi B’s debut hit also spends a sixth week at No. 1 on The Hot Rap Songs chart and a fourth frame atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.
