Cardi B just made history and shut down any talk that she’s just a blip on the rap radar. And she dethroned Taylor Swift in the process. The 24-year-old MC has become the first female rapper since 1998 to land a single at no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart unassisted.

The industry record chart reported the “Love and Hip Hop” star’s debut song, “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” hit the top spot making it the first time any solo female MC has done so since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing),” debuted at No. 1.

“Yeah, b—-! I hit number one!” Cardi exclaims at Atlantic Record’s celebration of the achievement Monday, Sept. 25. “I am very happy, I’m very honored especially because my family’s here. At first, I kept coming to the label like, ‘Why is my s— not playing on the radio?! I do not understand what’s going on.’ And then, it’s just like, ‘You gotta keep on working hard to get that record, that big record.’ And then, it’s just like, ‘Oh, I’ma give you a record! I’ma give you a m—–f—— record.'”

Hill’s achievement isn’t the only one Cardi B can check off her list. She’s also the only other female artist besides Rihanna to have a single hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 without a feature this decade — not even Beyoncé’s newest singles have done that!

Online, many of Cardi’s fans applauded her feat.
