Cardi B has just completed a musical milestone. Her breakout anthem called Bodak Yellow is currently the no. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 after dethroning Taylor Swift’s Look What You Made Me Do which was no.1 in the chart for three weeks.
After the announcement, Cardi took to Instagram to share a video that found her thanking fans for their support.
‘THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, I haven’t even showered son with all the running around,’ Cardi captioned the clip.
‘Loveee you all each and everybody contributed for this. You made it happen for me!!! The number 1 WAY!!’
Nicki Minaj later took to Twitter to congratulate Cardi for the achievement.
‘Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement,’ Nicki wrote.
‘Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it @iamcardib.’
Cardi’s family and friends also celebrated her success with a surprise bash.
While attending the party, Cardi couldn’t hide her excitement, and she thanked everyone who has ever supported her throughout her hip-hop career.
During her speech, Cardi looked like she threw a bit of shade at Taylor Swift by singing a verse from her song, Look What You Made Me Do.
During an interview with Billboard, however, Cardi claimed that she really loved Taylor’s new song.
‘It was a lovely surprise. It was kinda like a close race. It was like when Obama was running for president,’ she said.
‘Like, damn, why’d it have to be Taylor Swift? I like her, I like that damn song.’
Despite the initial buzz, Look What You Made Me Do was indeed more short-lived than everyone expected in becoming the chart-topper.
Cardi B has now become the first female rapper to reign on the chart since Lauryn Hill in 1998 with Doo Wop (That Thing).
Bodak Yellow finds Cardi reflecting on her humble beginning as a hip-hop star wannabe and bragging about her newfound success.
‘I wanted to do a song that is, like, ‘You know what? I’m in a good place in my life right now and I want to stun,’ she said of the track, before adding, ‘I felt it in my soul–this song is going to be so popping. While I was recording it, every b***h I don’t like came into my head.’
