Move along, Taylor Swift!
Female rapper Cardi B’s song “Bodak Yellow” just hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts, and her achievement symbolises only the second time in history for a female rapper to climb to the top of the charts on her own, bumping Tay Tay’s “Look What You Made Me Do” off top spot.
Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, broke records as it has been 19 years since another female rapper, Lauryn Hill, achieved that milestone as a solo artist. The Latina lass’ success speaks volumes, especially as a representative of a more extensive social background when compared to that of Swift’s.
Most people are commending the rapper for her work, and even Swift had no issue with being dethroned as the “Ready for It” was sweet enough to send her flowers. Cardi said thanks on Instagram, captioning, “Sooo beautiful and lovely. Thank you @taylorswift for the flowers 💐❤️❤️….and I freaking love your music 🎶”
