Cardi B Makes Rap History

25 Sep, 2017

Cardi B has knocked Taylor Swift off the number one singles spot and made rap history.

The “Bodak Yellow” artist, 24, became the first female rapper to score a solo No.1 in the US since Lauryn Hill achieved that feat with “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in 1998.

Celebrating her achievement at her label Atlantic Records in New York, she thanked her friends and family for supporting her.

A video acquired by TMZ shows the former Love & Hip Hop: New York star, whose real name is Belcalis Almanza, say: “I’m very happy, I’m very honoured. You know who your real friends is when you open a business. I’ve experienced that this week.

“Because all my friends, everyone I grew up with, everybody posted so I could go to No. 1, without me even asking. They did it every day, just harassing their followers.”

She then apparently began to sing a cheeky rendition of Taylor Swift’s song “Look What You Made Me Do”.

Fellow rapper Nicki Minaj, who was denied a No.1 spot in 2014 with “Anaconda” due to Swift’s three-week reign with “Shake It Off”, congratulated Cardi B by tweeting: “Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement. Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it @iamcardib,” she wrote.

Cardi tweeted after the news was announced: “Every single FEMALE RAPPER CONGRATULATED ME TODAY. Is the best feeling cause I listened to ALL OF THEM.”
