Making History: Cardi B "Bodak Yellow" Hits #1 On The Hot 100

Offset is, probably, the celebration, too.

For the first time in 19 years, a woman that the rapper has reached the #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart without the assistance of another artist who is credited, according to Billboard.

Cardi B, the very openly Love & Hip Hop: New York star, has nabbed the crown with his most recent success, "Bodak Yellow".

The only other woman to accomplish this feat was Lauryn Hill in 1998, when he released "Doo Wop (That Thing)" minus The Fugees.

In general, the Cardi is just the fifth female rapper always the top of the chart. She joins the Hill, Lil Kim, Iggy Azalea and Shawnna, which was featured on Ludacris' "Stand Up" in the year 2003.

As if that weren't enough, the Bronx-born, is also the first solo female act to hit #1 with a debut single from Meghan Trainor released "All About the bass" in the year 2014.

2017 has already been a breakout year for the Cardi. Since the release of "Bodak Yellow" in June, she exploded with notoriety and appeared on several high-profile events, including the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards and Rihanna's recent Diamond Ball charity event.

Their debut album was originally planned for October release, but during an interview with The Breakfast Club, commented that the pressure to top "Bodak Yellow" was a factor that pushed the album release date back.

It is not clear when his album will come, but for now, "Bodak Yellow" is obviously treating her well.
