Cardi B has a reason to dance…
The 25-year-old half-Dominican American rap sensation has reached the top of Billboard’s Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart (dated September 1) with “I Like It,” featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin.
The former Billboard Hot 100No. 1 (July 7) is the first Dance/Mix Show Airplay leader for all three acts.
Although not a natural dance/electronic song, the track samples Pete Rodriguez’s “I Like It Like That,” which was covered by The Blackout Allstarsas “I Like It.” The latter song reached No. 19 on Dance Club Songsin December 1994 and No. 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 in February 1997.
The Dance/Mix Show Airplay chart measures radio airplay on a select group of full-time dance stations, along with plays during mix shows on more than 80 top 40-formatted reporters.
