Cardi B Makes History, Again, With Three Singles in the Billboard Top 10
The Bronx native is the first rapper to land her first three commercial tracks in the upper reaches of the charts, joining only Ashanti and the Beatles.
Cardi B has done it again. Just months after becoming the first solo female rapper in 19 years to top Billboard’s Hot 100, she’s back and breaking more records.
As Billboard points out, the Bronx native joins the ranks with the Beatles and Ashanti as the the third artist to chart her first three singles simultaneously within the Hot 100’s Top 10, making her the first rapper to do so. As it stands, her features on G Eazy’s “No Limit” and Migos’ “Motorsport,” sit at No. 4 and No. 7 respectively, while her commercial single “Bodak Yellow” rises back to the top ten after 25 weeks on the charts.
Her latest entries aren’t too far behind either, as “Bartier Cardi” trails behind at No. 14, with her feature with Ozuna, “Lo Modelo,” picking up steam at No. 52. She’s already made history twice since her first entry in June, would we be surprised if she dominated half of the top ten? Either way, she’s in great company.
