MEET CARDI B, THE FIRST FEMALE RAPPER TO HAVE A NO. 1 SONG IN NEARLY 20 YEARS

If you don’t know Cardi B, it’s time get acquainted.

The Bronx-born former stripper’s debut single, “Bodak Yellow,” climbed into the No. 1 spot this week, making her the first solo female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 in 19 years.

The track’s performance ended the three week-long reign of Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do.” Watch the moment Cardi got the big news below:

The curvy beauty worked as an exotic dancer in the Bronx before breaking into the music industry in 2015 on a remix of Shaggy’s “Boom Boom.” More show biz breaks followed after she joined the cast of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York that same year.

The 24-year-old rapper has also been a featured artist on a number of singles. Perhaps her most notable collaboration was alongside A$AP Rocky on G-Eazy’s“No Limit.”

Cardi has yet to release a full-length record of her own.
