Cardi B: 1st Female Rapper To Hit No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 Without Feature Since Lauryn Hill

9/25/2017 by Gary Trust Billboard

Cardi B becomes the first female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart without the assistance of any other credited artists in nearly 19 years, as her debut hit "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" rises from No. 2 to No. 1 on the latest chart (dated Oct. 7).

"Bodak," released on The KSR Group/Atlantic Records, makes Cardi B (born Belcalis Almanzar, in the Bronx, New York) just the second female rapper to top the Hot 100 without any other billed artists, following Lauryn Hill's first solo Hot 100 entry (apart from the Fugees), "Doo Wop (That Thing)," for two weeks beginning with its Nov. 14, 1998, debut at No. 1.

Cardi B is only the fifth female rapper ever to lead the Hot 100 at all. After Hill, Lil' Kim ruled for five weeks in 2001 with Christina Aguilera, Mya and P!nk on "Lady Marmalade"; Shawnna reigned as featured on Ludacris' "Stand Up," which topped the Dec. 6, 2003, chart; and Iggy Azalea's introductory Hot 100 hit, "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, led for seven weeks in 2014.

Cardi B is also the first female soloist to top the Hot 100 with a debut track unaccompanied by another artist since Meghan Trainor, whose "All About That Bass" led for eight weeks beginning Sept. 20, 2014.

"Bodak" bullets at No. 2 on the Streaming Songs chart with 46.4 million U.S. streams, up 14 percent, in the week ending Sept. 21, according to Nielsen Music. It bounds 12-3 on Digital Song Sales, up 85 percent to 56,000 downloads sold in the week ending Sept. 21, marking the Hot 100's top gain in download sales (aided by a 69-cent discount price in the iTunes Store). The track also lifts 16-13 on Radio Songs, with 62 million all-format audience impressions, up 8 percent, in the week ending Sept. 24. ("Bodak" spends a fifth week at No. 1 on the Rap Airplay chart and a second week atop R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay; crowns the Rhythmic Songs airplay chart, with a 3-1 rise; and debuts on Pop Songs on at No. 37.)

Notably, for a second straight week, a song tops the Hot 100 but is not the week's No. 1 title in streaming, airplay or sales; still, it accumulated enough overall chart points to reign.

As for Atlantic Records in 2017, thanks to Cardi B's new No. 1, multiple leaders on the label have ascended to their first weeks at the Hot 100's summit in the same calendar year for the first time since 2012, as Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You" ruled for 12 weeks from its debut at No. 1 in Jan. 28. Five years ago, Flo Rida's "Whistle" and Bruno Mars' "Locked Out of Heaven" each ascended to the top for Atlantic.

Cardi B's breakthrough hit also spends a sixth week at No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart and a fourth frame atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.

Cardi B's success falls under the GRAMMY window for Nods...How many GRAMMYS nods do you think she'll get? OR will the GRAMMYS only show her some Rap-Genre Love and let her Rule the Rap category..

We'll see if the GRAMMYS are paying attention....

It's cute, damn everybody hating let her have her win and get these coins.

Shit female rappers at the top are hard to come by, give them an applause shit.

Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

The song is catchy but nothing that special. Her goofy personality is behind her popularity. Like someone says, she's a trashy Nicky Minaj. lol

Isn't Nicki a copy of Lil' Kim though? H.W.A., who was before Kim, might have started that kind of image for female rappers.

Interesting how the 1st Female Rapper who wasn't Cardi B. to Hit No. 1 On Billboard Hot 100 has lyrics describing how not to be a hoe while Cardi's is the antithesis. Go Women!?

Ex:

"Plus, when you give it up so easy you ain't even foolin' him
If you did it then, then you'd probably fuck again
Talking out your neck, sayin' you're a Christian
A Muslim, sleeping with the jinn
Now that was the sin that did Jezebel in
Who you gon' tell when the repercussions spin?"

vs.

"My pussy feel like a lake
He wanna swim with his face
I'm like okay
I'll let him do what he want
He buy me Yves Saint Laurent
And the new whip
When I go fast as a horse
I got the trunk in the front"

Not much different than the other #1s after Lauryn. Lady Marmalade is about prostitutes and the original version by Eleventh Hour came out long before Lauryn Hall had a career. It's also Patti LaBelle's most known hit. The Ludacris & Shawnna song is about being in the club and Iggy's song is bragging about the rich life.

Maybe, but Grace had an androgynous look. Kim looks more like Hoes With Attitudes to me.

True, Labelle's was mainly fantasy while this Cardi seems to be "about that life" given the life story toted in the media. Does Lady Marmalade glamorize prostitution? I suppose...IMO the lyrics are written in a way to promote that question. This seems like one of the more sleazier tunes to get top spot, maybe I'm becoming more puritanical.

It's the Top 40/Hot 100, not the gospel chart. lol Brown Sugar (Rolling Stones) & Bad Girls (Donna Summer) were big hits at one time.

Paul McCartney is in touch. razz He did the mannequin challenge with Black Beatles by Rae Sremmurd playing in the background. Paul also collaborated with Rihanna & Kanye.

I looked her up on YouTube a couple of weeks ago when Wendy Williams kept talking about her. At first I thought she was talking about a male rapper. You right hip hop is done the way we knew it with the classic artists like Tribe,KRS One,Whodini,Ice Cube,P.E. It's a wrap now! That's why I keep my ears closed to the newbies coming in the game now. Nothing I can relate to.

Well I'm sad then. lol Just because you don't like it don't mean it's trash. There's people who don't like your precious 1980s music you're always talking about. People always put down the popular music of the next generation, going all the way back to flappers and big band jazz. It's a hit and that means a lot of people like the song. All you "Get off my lawn whippersnapper" folks must not have anything to do but be grouchy Scrooges.
