Cardi B has a new reason to celebrate. She makes chart history by becoming the first woman to score five of the Top 10 hits on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, and she is the only artist to ever achieve this milestone with her first five chart entries. Per Billboard, she claims five songs in the Top 10 ranking dated Jan. 20. She is also the third act in history to accomplish this feat since the chart’s 1958 origin, under its former name, the Hot R&B Sides chart.
Cardi B notably ties Drake and Kendrick Lamar for the most concurrent Top 10 hits. Drake pulled this off eight different times in 2016 and Lamar did it once last year. The “Bodak Yellow” songstress previously tied and now eclipses Beyoncé by one hit among female artists, notching up from four Top 10 singles to five.
Cardi B’s hot new collaboration with Bruno Mars, “Finesse,” currently holds the No. 1 position on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The single marks her second topper on this chart following “Bodak Yellow,” which currently holds the No. 10 spot. Cardi B’s G-Easy “No Limit” feature rests at No. 3 just under Post Malone feat. 21 Savage “Rockstar” at No. 2. Her feature with Migos and Nicki Minaj on “MotorSport” claims the No. 4 position and “Bartier Cardi” featuring 21 Savage currently holds the lucky No. 7 position.
“Finesse” was released on Jan. 4 as a remix from Bruno Mars’ 24K Magic track. It also tops the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Songs chart and debuted at the top of the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs chart. The fun, ‘90s-themed music video for “Finesse” finds Cardi B and Mars in baggy clothes, kicking it ‘90s-style. The pair of former tour mates will hit the stage together at this year’s Grammy Awards ceremony in New York. “Bodak Yellow” is notably nominated for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance at this year’s 60th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, which airs Jan. 28 on CBS.
