Cardi B’s ‘Bodak Yellow’ Knocked Taylor Swift Off Number One On The Billboard Chart

Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” just reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making her the first person of Dominican descent and only the second female solo rapper to reach the coveted top spot. It’s the first time a female rapper has hit number one since Lauryn Hill for “Doo-Wop (That Thing)” back in 1998.

Cardi B recently went to Atlantic records to pick up her platinum plaque for “Bodak Yellow,” and according to her Instagram account, was surprised by all of her friends, family, and even coworkers from back in her strip clubs days. It’s a big day for the Trinidadian-Dominican from the Bronx.

Cardi B was surprised by friends and family when she arrived at the Atlantic Records offices to pick up her platinum plaque.

“Talking bout they needed a meeting when I hit platinum and I’m #1 on Billboard, and they surprised me with my family!” Cardi B says in the above video she posted on the day she made history.

If you watch it until the end, you can see Cardi B’s grandma, who she once taught how to twerk, repping in the crowd.

She’s so proud! ?

If you’ve been paying attention, Cardi B recently promised that if her song went to #1, she’d release a new single.

So, now that “Bodak Yellow” topped Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” for the number one spot, will Cardi B be keeping her promise to release new music? She spoke to Billboard about it…

If Cardi B pushes her album back to November, she’d be competing against Taylor Swift, who is also set to drop her new project in November. Maybe she’s enjoying the competition with Taylor Swift.

More than anything, Cardi B is grateful for hitting number one. In tear-streaked mascara, Cardi B thanked her fans, shouting in an airport from the excitement.

Standard behavior from the star.

May the fairy tale continue…

Get it Cardi!

People Want To Know Why Kylie Jenner Had To Be A Cameo In The “WAP” Music Video

Update: Cardi B’s “WAP” music video is something you didn’t know you needed in this quarantine. The super sexual moment in musical history will give you all of the thirst vibes you need. But fans want to know why Kylie Jenner had to be involved.

First, let’s enjoy the majesty of the “WAP” music video.

They did that. The music video is everything we didn’t know we needed to make quarantine better. The rappers gave a very exciting performance as they delivered a music video we will not soon forget to the first song Cardi B has released in nine months. They even had some notable cameos like Normani Kordei and Rosalia. However, everyone has the same question: “Why Kylie Jenner?”

Kylie Jenner’s cameo is just walking through a hallway.

The cameo is a very random placement but might just be the best way to grab some attention. Normani Kordei, Rosalia, Rubi Rose, Sukihana, and Mulatto also appeared in the video and were given far smaller parts. People are just really confused.

Though, on Twitter user pointed out that Jenner is doing exactly what you’d expect. People always give her attention when she shows up somewhere and that attention will help the video. Cardi B isn’t one to overlook things so she likely knew you’d be upset and have to figure out why Jenner was added to the project.

Original: Quarantine just got a little easier.

In a recent post to their Instagram pages, rappers Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion confirmed that they are dropping a new collaboration that we didn’t see coming.

And it’s one that we all could most certainly use right now.

In a post to her Instagram page, Cardi B announced that she’s collaborating with Megan Thee Stallion on a new song called “WAP.”

The new song is the first lead track from Cardi since she dropped “Press” in 2019. Earlier this year in March, Megan dropped her album “Suga.”

“WAP” drops this Friday and by the looks of the song’s cover art, it’s gonna be quite the hit. Or at least be very taste? Megan and Cardi can be seen posing for the cover art wearing matching “WAP” gold hoops and with their hair woven in together into one bun. To top it off, their tongues are sticking out like they’re ready to rock.

The latest pairing is a follow up to Megan’s recent power couple collab for “Savage” with Beyoncé. It also her newest song since her recent recovery from a gunshot wound.

Earlier last month, Megan revealed that she was shot in both of her feet.

Speaking about the shooting, which happened on July 12, Megan said “I see… a lot of people that have been very supportive and sending prayers, and I just really appreciate that” she said during the live stream. “I saw the hotties doing a lot of things, like writing letters on Tumblr and DMing me all the time, and I just want to say thank y’all so much, because y’all have really been the ones helping me get through this.”

“I was shot in both of my feet,” she explained. “I had to get surgery to get the bullets taken out. And it was super scary… Thank God that the bullets didn’t touch bones; they didn’t break tendons. I know my momma or my daddy, my granny, had to be looking out for me with that one because where the bullets hit at it missed everything.”

Of course, Cardi B and Megan fans were quick to flip.

Literally we’re all pumped.

Girl groups are uniting.

And we’re all ready for it to reach #1.

And we all have questions about what WAP is supposed to mean?

It’s all a mystery but we’re here for the guesses.

“WAP” drops this week on August 7, this Friday.

When it comes to the collection of body art, no one in quarantine seems to be quite as productive as Cardi B. The “Press” rapper might be in quarantine like the rest of us but that hasn’t stopped her from getting multiple tattoos and some body bling. Back in June, the rapper revealed her painful effort to obtain two new daring dermal pieces.

Unfortunately, as cute as the lewk was, her body didn’t seem up for it.

The rapper recently shared a video on her Instagram Stories of her body rejecting her chest piercings.

In a graphic video shared to Cardi’s Instagram last week, at least one of the piercings can be seen being pushed out of her body and hanging from her skin. “This is how my piercing has been for the past four days,” she explained in the selfie video.

Back in June, Cardi shared her excitement over her dermal piercing process in a video posted to her Instagram page. The two new dermal piercings were placed in a vertical line down her chest. At the time she’d also opted to remove her top dermal piercing “I got to take this one off because this one is old,” she shared. “You all know I’ve been having this one for a long time, but whatever.”

It’s unknown why Cardi B’s piercing was rejected by her body.

According to Healthline, “Piercing rejection isn’t nearly as common as some other piercing complications, like infections, keloids, and dermatitis. When rejection does happen, it’s usually in a flat area of the body.” Even more, there is no specific reason for piercing rejections. They can range from genetics and skin tightness to jewlery shape and size. Weight changes and emotional stress can also be factors in the body’s rejection of piercings.

Here’s hoping Cardi B gets the dermal piercing she’d originally hoped for!
