Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” Cracks Top 10 on Billboard Hot 100 Chart
Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" is already at the top of many summer anthem playlists, and now it's making its way to the top of the charts. The smash hit single was previously at No. 14 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and is now cracking the top 10 section of the chart by moving up to the No. 8 slot.
Billboard reports the Bronx native is now the first female rapper with a debut entry to reach the top 10 bracket since Iggy Azalea's "Fancy" single in 2014. The song's progression on the chart is the fastest flight to the Hot 100's top 10 bracket for a female soloist in a lead role since Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass" single from 2014 as well.
Last week, it was also reported she had the highest-charting song by a female rapper unaccompanied since Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" single from 2014, which peaked at No. 2.
"Bodak Yellow" also rises from No. 6 to No. 2 on the Streaming Songs chart, as well as from No. 20 to No. 15 on the Digital Song Sales chart. It's now currently at No. 36 on Radio Songs.
Being that Cardi's climb to the top spot is moving swiftly, we'll have to see what happens in the coming weeks. Currently, Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee's "Despacito" single featuring Justin Bieber is at the top slot, and is making history as the second-longest command in the 59-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Congratulations on another major feat for Cardi B in her rise to the top. Watch the video for "Bodak Yellow" below.
