This week, Cardi B.’s hit “Bodak Yellow” moved into the number #3 spot on the Hot 100, putting her behind only the juggernaut song “Despacito” and the summer banger “Wild Thoughts” for top song of Summer ’17. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg that has been The Summer of Cardi B.
Cardi B. took to Instagram to proudly share her song’s ascent on the charts.
“Bodak Yellow” moved up 5 spots in just a week to land at #3 behind two of the summer’s biggest hits.
She also spent some time at the Dominican Day Parade dancing and rapping on a float while debuting the remix to her hit, which itself is becoming a hit.
She’s also dating rapper Offset from Migos and an engagement may already be on the way.
It’s no surprise that these two have been reportedly dating. The pair recently appeared on screen together for Cardi B.’s song “Lick,” which features Offset. Besides rumors that he was seen shopping for an engagement ring, possibly corroborated by his own Snapchat account, Offset also showed up at her grandma’s crib in the Bronx, the same way we had our crushes come and visit us in our building. It’s an NYC tradition. I bet they held hands in the hallway and made out on the stairs, too. They’ll be smoking Newports and drinking 40’s on the stoop in no time.
The two are even social-media-boo’d up.

It’s actually really cute and whatever they’ve got going on seems to be based on supporting and inspiring each other. A nice change of pace from, “Girl, you’re so fine,” to “Girl, I believe in you… and you’re so fine.”
Cardi B. also recently achieved a New York dream by guest starring on El Vacilón de la Mañana, a radio staple in NYC Latino households.

You know you’re winning when the New York Times writes a piece on you.
Like a true New Yorker, Cardi B. read this article over coffee and a buttered roll — recently heralded as the true hero of NYC.
Cardi B. is set to finish up the month of August strong, with a performance during MTV’s VMA pre-party.
The only way this could get any better is if she performs in the actual VMAs, while receiving an award for song of the summer, with Offset on one knee proposing to her, while her abuela watches from the front row.
This summer really did belong to Cardi B. and we’re here for it.👏👏👏
