Last year may have been the year of “Bodak Yellow,” which we named as the #2 song of 2017, but it looks like Cardimania is still poised to run wild all through 2018. We’re not even a week into the new year and Cardi B has already hit a major music milestone. Her first three singles are all in the Billboard top ten, a feat only twice accomplished before in the entire history of music, by The Beatles and Ashanti respectively.
Nearing the tail-end of 2017, Cardi’s Migos and Nicki Minaj collaboration, “Motor Sport,” and her duet with G-Eazy, “No Limit,” both sat in the top ten. Evidently the holidays brought an influx of playing “Bodak Yellow” again, so much so that the track re-entered the top ten as well, thus joining the other two chartbusters and earning Cardi the rare achievement. Given that Cardi’s latest single “Bartier Cardi” debuted at #14 this week as well, it could only be a matter of time before she has four songs in the top ten.
Cardi celebrated the news on her Instagram in true Cardi fashion. The language may be NSFW, but her enthusiasm and unapologetic Cardi-ness makes it pretty much perfect.
Here she is on the In Living Color-inspired clip for Bruno Mars’ “Finesse” remix.
