Cardi B ‘Bodak Yellow’ Hits No. 2 On Billboard Hot 100 Right Behind Taylor Swift+Ties Nicki Minaj Billboard Record

Following the word that Cardi B‘s hit ‘Bodak Yellow‘ took the no. 1 spot on the Billboard Hip Hop Songs chart this week, now the single has moved another spot higher on the overall Billboard Hot 100.

The rapper continues to defy all odds and prove her critics wrong as the single jumped from its previously held no. 3 spot to the no. 2 spot right behind Taylor Swift‘s ‘Look What You Made Me Do.’

Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” spends a second week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Sept. 23). Swift also debuts at No. 4 on the Hot 100 with “…Ready for It?,” with both songs previewing her new album Reputation, due Nov. 10.

Meanwhile, Cardi B bumps 3-2 with “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” marking the first time in nearly three years that solo women (in lead roles) rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously on the Hot 100.

With Swift at No. 1 and Cardi B at No. 2, the Hot 100 finds two solo women in lead roles in the top two simultaneously for the first time in almost three years, since the Hot 100 dated Dec. 13, 2014. That week, (guess who) Swift ranked at No. 1 with “Blank Space” (with Dec. 13 doubling as her birthday!) and Meghan Trainor placed at No. 2 with “All About That Bass.” Reflecting the chart’s cyclical nature, however, while Swift and Cardi B this week end the lengthy run of male artists in the Hot 100’s top two, that Dec. 13, 2014-dated Hot 100 completed a whopping 15-week streak of women monopolizing the region (thanks to Swift’s “Space” and “Shake It Off”; Trainor’s “Bass”; and Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda”).

Go Cardi!!!
