It’s been a big week for Cardi B. The rapper’s single “Bodak Yellow” (watch the video above) hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart after a steady 12-week ascent. To congratulate her on the achievement, Cardi B got a slew of presents from her peers including a Fenty Beauty gift from the cosmetics line founder, Rihanna, as well as a bountiful bouquet of flowers from Taylor Swift, whose “Look What You Made Me Do” was replaced by “Bodak Yellow” at the No. 1 spot. Check out Cardi B’s Instagram post of her gift from Taylor below.
According to Billboard, “Bodak Yellow” became the first single by a solo female rap artist to top the charts since Lauryn Hill's “Doo Wop (That Thing)” in 1998. Also recognizing her chart success was one of Cardi B’s idols. On Sept. 25 Missy Elliott tweeted her congratulations to her fellow female rapper. You can check out Missy’s tweet below.
