Cardi B’s had quite the year. After releasing her first studio album Invasion of Privacy, she reached her second No. 1 Billboard’s Hot 100 single with her Bad Bunny and J Balvin collab “I Like It.” Now, Cardi’s celebrating a new chart-topping milestone, as her collab with Maroon 5 “Girls Like You” reached No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot 100.
On Monday, the Bronx-born rapper became the first female rapper to have three singles on the No. 1 spot, making her also the first person of Dominican descent to reach this mark. And, of course, she took to Instagram to celebrate.
The rapper shared a screenshot of a tweet spreading the history-making news with the caption, “F*ck with me and make some money!” a reference to the chorus of one of Cardi’s biggest features “No Limit” with G-Eazy. Bardi also thanked Maroon 5, who are set to perform on the SuperBowl half-time show, for having her on the song, later inviting the band to have a couple of Coronas.
Cardi also took time to greet her fans on Instagram and share the good news from her hotel room in Paris. “Bonjour, bitch!” she said. The rapper then said her verse on “Girls Like You” was almost not approved because her team felt it was too early in her career to have another feature on a pop song, after she appeared on “Girls,” alongside Rita Ora and Charlie XCX, and the remix of “Finesse” with Bruno Mars. But Bardi stood strong and assured her team “Girls Like You” was a hit. “The first time I heard this song it made me want to cry,” she said.
The rumor mill surrounding Cardi B has been rolling wild in the past couple of weeks. After her loaded encounter with Nicki Minaj at a New York Fashion Week party, the rapper has been laying low, until this week when she hit up Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks. TMZ is also reporting Cardi B might be negotiating her own solo time on Maroon 5’s SuperBowl half-time show, making her one of the few Latinos who’s performed on this stage, such as Gloria Estefan, The Miami Sound Machine, and Bruno Mars.
