Cardi B Tops Beyonce’s Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Record
According to a report from Billboard, the "Bodak Yellow" rapper has become the first woman with five simultaneous top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. She is also just the third act to ever accomplish the feat.
Bardi's latest collaboration with Bruno Mars, "Finesse (Remix)," tops the chart, while the G-Eazy collab "No Limit" sits at No. 3. "Motorsport," "Bartier Cardi" and "Bodak Yellow" sit at No. 4, No. 7 and No. 10, respectively. The rapper was previously tied with Beyoncé with four top 10 songs on the chart.
Along with her new Bruno Mars collaboration, the two also linked up for an In Living Color-inspired video and gained a new fan in actor Jim Carrey. The actor, who got his start on the Damon Wayans-produced show, tweeted his support to the artists.
"@iamcardib and @BrunoMars Great song, beautiful memories. Really gave me a kick. Spank you kindly!" Carrey wrote in a tweet that included a link to the video.
While Cardi now has five songs on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart, she may soon have six. The New York rapper has a collaboration with Yo Gotti in the works, and the song sounds like it could be a hit.
"Say where I'm at? K.O.D./Where I'm at? I'm at LIV/What I'm doin'? Poppin' pussy/Where he at? At the crib," Cardi can be heard rapping a preview of the song.
It's uncertain when the song will drop, but be on the lookout for it.
