Cardi B Bodak Yellow is the first female rapper to hit the number one spot on Billboard hot 100 since Lauryn Hill’s “Do Wop/That Thang” with no features. 19 years ago Lauryn Hill dominated the top of the charts with her massive hit, “Do Wop/ That Thang” a single off her debut album apart from The Fugees. Today Cardi B reigns with Bodak Yellow from number two, to number one, no features, or assistance, a solo record making Cardi only the 5th female in rap to do it.
Cardi B is also the first female solo artist since 2014 to hit number one with no features with a debut track. With fans and radio stations all participating in the epic swift promo #CardiBForTheCulture a plight to move Cardi to number one, not only did it work, but it proved our power. Now if only we could gather like this for everything, no one would ever get a chance to hit number one!
