Last week, Urbanislandz.com reported that Cardi B will overthrow Taylor Swift for the top spot on Billboard this week after “Bodak Yellow” shows strong sales over the past week. The former Love and Hip Hop New York star got the news from last week and posted a video of herself dancing. That was just the beginning of the celebration because her label Atlantic Records threw her a surprise party with some of her family and friends turning up.
“Thank you everybody I am very happy and I am very honored,” she said. “Especially since my family is here you know like at first I kept asking and I keep coming to the label like why is my sh*t not playing on the radio I do not understand whats going on and then they just be like you gotta keep working hard to get the record that big record. I said am going to do it am going to give you that record… And then it was just like when it hits the Billboard, you know I don’t know how this music industry work, but then am like everybody listening to this song. If it’s not on the Billboard then it really doesn’t matter.”
Atlantic Records reps said that Cardi B is one of the hardest working rappers in the business. She was also presented with her plaques for the achievement. This week Bardi also created history when she became the first female rapper since Lauryn Hill did it in the 1990s to have a lead number one single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. She did it even before Nicki Minaj who scored No. 2 singles as lead but never reached number one.
“THANK YOU THANK THANK YOU ,I haven’t even showered son with all the running around I loveee you all each and everybody contributed for this .Ya made it happen for me !!!!! The number 1 WAY!!” Cardi B said on IG.
