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

By Mark Pygas

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.
