The self-proclaimed “Trap Selena” Cardi B. who’s had the best year, 2017 ever (from the top 10 track “Bodak Yellow” that continues to reign supreme; is never-ending and while her glow-up and charisma remain mesmerizing), Cardi B. is now the first rapper ever to have her first three songs on the Billboard 100 top 10 simultaneously. The Bronx born, New York rapper has “Bodak Yellow” (still on the list at No. 10), G-Eazy’s “No Limit” (No. 4) and “Motorsport” by Migos (No. 7). This record has only been achieved by only two other major artist, The Beatles and Ashanti. In 1964, the swooning UK boy band turned international mega band had “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “She Loves You” and “Please, Please Me” all in the top 10.
No other artist achieved that feat until 2002 when Ashanti had her hit solo debut song “Foolish,” and was featured on both Ja Rules “Always On Time” and Fat Joe’s “What’s Luv” respectively. It’s safe to say that Cardi B. is in great company with this huge achievement; her 2018 is seemingly off to one hell of a good start! Catch her at the Grammy’s in February for a sure to be unforgettable performance and see her on stage at Coachella in the spring.
