New York rapper Cardi B‘s here for the long run. The hip-hop diva has served up a hefty reminder to fans and critics alike about her chart-topping status.
Cardi went to Twitter Sunday (August 13) to reveal her infectious “Bodak Yellow” is doing historic numbers on its competition.
This week, a report surfaced about the massive success Cardi’s received courtesy of her “Bodak Yellow” hit.
The ascent makes “Bodak” the highest-charting hit by an unaccompanied female rapper (no other artists on the billing) since Nicki Minaj’s “Anaconda” burst to No. 2 in 2014. The tune leaps 13-6 on Streaming Songs (24.5 million U.S. streams in the week ending Aug. 3, according to Nielsen Music, up 56 percent), rises 35-20 on Digital Song Sales (22,000 sold according to Nielsen Music, up 39 percent) and nears Radio Songs (22 million in audience, up 54 percent).

A few days ago, B invaded rap star Drake’s annual OVO Fest concert.
Over the last week, hip-hop heavyweights from Nicki Minaj to Game have saluted Cardi’s grind.
