Cardi B Is Now the First Female Rapper to Earn 3 Billboard No. 1's
Cardi B just made history.
Cardi B just earned her third Billboard hot 100 no. 1 song with her Maroon 5 collaboration, "Girls Like You."
The track peaked at the top of the chart on Monday, dethroning Drake's 10-week "In My Feelings" reign. This marks the 25-year-old Bronx rapper's second no. 1 song this year.
Cardi's single "I Like It" featuring J Balvin, and Bad Bunny off her debut album Invasion of Privacy, topped the chart in July.
Cardi now holds the record as the first woman in rap with more than one Hot 100 #1 song. It's been less than a year since her first breakout hit "Bodak Yellow" topped the chart in October 2017.
