Cardi B Makes Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs History
Cardi B has dethroned Queen Bey, becoming the first woman with five simultaneous top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Tying both Drake and Kendrick Lamar, she becomes the third act overall to reach this milestone. Drizzy did it eight times in 2016 while K-Dot did it once last year.
Bardi, who is the first artist to reach this feat with her first five singles, was previously tied with Beyoncé with four hits on the chart.
This week, Cardi has the No. 1 song on the chart with Bruno Mars’ “Finesse.” It’s her second No. 1 after “Bodak Yellow,” which topped the chart for six weeks in September and October of last year. “Finesse” is also No. 1 on the Digital, Streaming, and Airplay Gainer charts, and it’s No. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100. Elsewhere on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, Cardi is featured on G-Eazy’s “No Limit” (No. 3), Migos’ “MotorSport” (No. 4), “Bartier Cardi” (No. 7), and “Bodak Yellow” (No. 10).
Cardi celebrated the achievement on social media. “I’m so happy,” she gushed, while praising her Hot 100 run. “I’m so proud of myself.”
