Queen Bey has lost her U.S. chart crown to Cardi B.
The “Bodak Yellow” rapper owns the best-selling album in the U.S. right now, the Billboard 200 chart-leader Invasion of Privacy, and she’s snatched another slice of history with 13 entries on the singles survey, the Billboard Hot 100. The latter feat sees Cardi pass Beyonce for the most simultaneous titles on the list by a solo female artist. Beyonce previously ruled with 12 tracks on the Hot 100 in May 2016, in the week that her sixth studio set Lemonade vaulted to No. 1 on the albums chart.
Cardi’s career has been nothing short of meteoric
Freakish, perhaps. Last December, she made history among female rappers when she became the first female MC to see her first three entries crack the U.S. top ten, led by her signature tune “Bodak Yellow,” which dethroned Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” from the No. 1 slot on the Billboard Hot 100.
Her giant-killing ways are just getting started. The Bronx rapper joined Jimmy Fallon last week as the first ever co-host of The Tonight Show, and she performed Coachella festival in Indio, California. And she’s getting it all done with a baby bump.
