How Cardi B became the first female rapper to reach #1 on Billboard hot 100 since Lauryn Hill in 1998

American rapper, Cardi B is now officially the first female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 without featuring any other artist since Lauryn Hill 19 years ago.

Her debut hit “Bodak Yellow” has been trending for months and finally sits atop the Billboard charts, rising from the No. 2 spot to No. 1.


Lauryn Hill in 1988 was the last female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 without features.

Post Malone‘s new song “Rockstar” featuring 21 Savage makes it’s debut at No. 2 while Taylor Swift‘s “Look What You Made Me Do” slipped from it’s first spot to the third spot.

This represents a big win for Cardi B and rightly deserved. Congratulations!
