Cardi B's Hit Song 'Bodak Yellow' Just Broke An Important Record

Three weeks ago, rapper Cardi B became the first female rapper in 19 years to reach the number 1 spot on Billboard's Hot 100. Her song, Bodak Yellow, knocked Taylor Swift's Look What You Made Me Do off the top spot.  

And now, Cardi B has broken a new record. According to Billboard, her reign has now outlasted the only other single from a female rapper to reach the top spot. Lauryn Hill’s Doo Wop (That Thing) held the number 1 spot for two weeks in November 1998, and Bodak Yellow has now beaten that record. 

It may have some issues holding onto the number 1 spot, though. Post Malone and 21 Savage’s Rockstar is holding onto the number 2 spot, and has already taken over Bodak Yellow on the Streaming Songs chart. 

J Balvin and Willy William's single, Mi Gente, featuring Beyonce, is also a threat, with the song jumping from 21 last week to number 3 this week. 

People seemed divided by the news. 

What do you think of this song?
