Cardi B Makes History with Five of the Top 10 Hits on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart

Move over, Beyonce… There’s a new R&B/Hip Hop charts queen…

Cardi B has become only the third act, and the first woman, with five of the top 10 hits on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in a single week since the list began in 1958 (when it was called the Hot R&B Sides chart).

Cardi B

The 25-year-old hald-Dominican American singer places five in the top 10 of the list dated January 20.

Among all acts, Cardi B ties Drake and Kendrick Lamar for the most concurrent top 10s. Drake has done it eight times (all in 2016) and Lamar has managed the achievement once, in 2017.

Among women, Cardi B was previously tied with Beyoncé, with four — a feat Cardi B matched in the previous two weeks (January 13 and January 6).

Further, Cardi B is the only artist to achieve the feat with her first five chart entries.

The Cardi B collection starts at the top of the new chart, as her collaboration with Bruno Mars, “Finesse,” roars 16-1 in its first full tracking week. The song debuted on the January 13 list, as its January 4 release date allotted for one day of sales and streams’ contributions in the prior tracking week.

The ascent gives Cardi B her second No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, after “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” amassed a six-week stint in September-October 2017.

With the burst, “Finesse” seizes the triple crown of the chart’s Digital, Streaming and Airplay Gainer prizes. The tune powers 5-1 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart and clocks a 189 percent burst to 87,000 downloads in the week ending January 11, according to Nielsen Music. “Finesse” also debuts atop R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs, pulling 38.3 million U.S. plays, and darts 31-20 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay with 11 million in radio audience, a 62 percent spike for the week ending January 14.

In addition to “Finesse,” Cardi B ranks in the top 10 of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs with a featured role on G-Eazy’s “No Limit,” which slides from its No. 2 high to No. 3, “Motorsport,” a collaboration with Migos and Nicki Minaj, which retreats 3-4, “Bartier Cardi,” up 9-7 and “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)”, a non-mover at No. 10.

Cardi B Lands Four Singles in Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart

Cardi B is the company of music royalty on the Billboard charts…

The 25-year-old half-Dominican American rap, who was 2017’s breakout star, joins Beyonce, aka Queen B, as the only two female artists to have four songs land in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs chart at the same time.

Cardi B

G-Eazy’s “No Limit,” featuring Cardi B, sits at number 2, Migos’ “Motorsport,” with Cardi B, follows at No. 4. “Bodak Yellow” sits at number 5, while her latest single “Bartier Cardi” is currently at No. 9.

Beyonce accomplished the feat in 2016 with songs from her Lemonade album. This included “Sorry,” “Formation,” “Hold Up,” and “6 inch,” featuring The Weekend.

The news of Cardi B’s recent Bey-sized accomplishment comes only a few months after rumors of a possible Cardi B-Beyonce collaboration.

Previously, Cardi B became the first female artist since Lauryn Hill, to top the Billboard Hot 100 chart, without a feature. She scored three songs in the top 10 simultaneously. To start the New Year, she was featured on the In Living Color themed, Bruno Mars’ “Finesse Remix,” which she’ll perform at the Grammys.

The two-time Grammy nominated artist, joins a list of other accomplished rappers to achieve the same feat in the past. This list includes Drake, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne, 50 Cent and 2 Chainz.

Cardi B Joins The Beatles & Ashanti in Rare Billboard Hot 100 Feat

Cardi B is making Beatles-size history…

The 25-year-old half-Dominican American singer has become just the third act – and the first rapper – to place her first three Billboard Hot 100 entries in the chart’s top 10 simultaneously, joining only The Beatles and Ashanti in achieving the feat.

Cardi B

Cardi B earns the honor as G-Eazy‘s “No Limit,” featuring A$AP Rocky and Cardi B, lifts from No. 5 to a No. 4 high on the new January 6-dated Billboard Hot 100 chart; Migos, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B’s No. 6-peaking “MotorSport” holds at No. 7; and her former three-week No. 1 debut smash “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” returning to the top 10, rising 12-10.

As Cardi B places at Nos. 4, 7 and 10 on the Hot 100, she joins elite company in ranking in the top 10 with her first three charted titles in the same week.

The Beatles first tripled up at the heights of early Beatlemania, as, on the Hot 100s dated February 29, March 7 and March 14, 1964, their first three entries all charted in the top 10 together. In the last of those three frames, the band monopolized the top three, with their first three hits at Nos. 1, 2 and 3, respectively: “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “She Loves You” and “Please Please Me.”

The feat remained unmatched for 38 years, until Ashanti reached the Hot 100’s top 10 with her first three charted titles simultaneously. On March 30 and April 6, 2002, she appeared in the tier with her own “Foolish” and as featured on Fat Joe‘s “What’s Luv?” and Ja Rule‘s “Always on Time.”

Cardi B is the first artist overall to chart three songs in the top 10 simultaneously since The Chainsmokers, who became the first duo to earn the distinction on the March 18, 2017-dated Hot 100. She’s the first woman to do so since both Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande on August 30, 2014.

Cardi B, Azalea, Grande, Adele and Ashanti are the only women with such a top-10 triple.

The only other acts to chart three Hot 100 top 10s simultaneously (dating to the chart’s Aug. 4, 1958, inception): Bee Gees, 50 Cent, Usher, Akon, T-Pain, Chris Brown, Lil Wayne and Justin Bieber (thus, making Cardi B the 15th act to join the club).

The honor is the latest for Cardi B, who, when “MotorSport” zoomed 15-6 on the December 30-dated Hot 100, became the first female rapper to reach the top 10 with her first three Hot 100 entries.

Cardi B’s current trio of top 10s is driven most heavily by streaming, as “No Limit” leaps 7-4 on the Streaming Songs chart with 34.2 million U.S. streams, up 18 percent, in the week ending Deember. 28, according to Nielsen Music; “MotorSport” reverses 5-7 (30 million, down 4 percent); and “Bodak Yellow” holds at No. 9 (24.2 million, down 1 percent).

Not to be forgotten among Cardi B’s bounty this week: at No. 4 on the Hot 100, “No Limit” marks a new career high for both G-Eazy and A$AP Rocky, the latter of whom surpasses his prior No. 5 peak, as featured on Selena Gomez‘s “Good for You” in 2015.

Meanwhile, Cardi B adds to her haul this week, earning the Hot 100’s top two debuts with her fourth and fifth Hot 100 entries. “Bartier Cardi,” featuring 21 Savage, bows at No. 14 on the Hot 100, as it launches at No. 10 on the Digital Song Sales chart with 45,000 first-week downloads sold in the week ending December 28 and at No. 11 on Streaming Songs (21.1 million opening-week U.S. streams). The song’s No. 14 Hot 100 entrance matches Cardi B’s best, tying the arrival of “MotorSport” (Nov. 18).

Plus, Ozuna and Cardi B’s “La Modelo” debuts on the Hot 100 at No. 52, starting on Digital Song Sales at No. 40 (19,000) and Streaming Songs at No. 41 (11.7 million). It opens at No. 3 on Hot Latin Songs (where it marks Cardi B’s first appearance).

Camila Cabello‘s “Havana,” featuring Young Thug, keeps at No. 3 on the Hot 100, after reaching No. 2, while topping Radio Songs for a fourth week (130.4 million, down 3 percent).

Cardi B Releases New Single “Bartier Cardi,” Featuring 21 Savage

Cardi B is back with new music…

The 25-year-old half-Dominican American hip-hop artist, a first-time Grammy nominee this year, has released her latest single, “Bartier Cardi,” featuring 21 Savage.

Cardi B

While Cardi B has been ever-present in 2017 — she’s currently featured on– G-Eazy’s “No Limit” with A$AP Rocky, Migos’ “Motorsport” with Nicki Minaj, and Ozuna’s “La Modelo” – “Bartier Cardi” is the official follow-up to “Bodak Yellow,” which topped the Billboard Hot 100 for five weeks.

While “Bodak Yellow” is her first hit, Cardi B has been in the spotlight for several years, thanks to her role on the VH1 reality TV series “Love & Hip Hop: New York,” where she made her debut as a cast member in 2015 during season six. She released her first single “Cheap Ass Weave” during her first year on the show and an appearance on reggae superstar Shaggy’s single “Boom Boom.” She left the show last December and signed with Atlantic Records early in 2017. She inked a worldwide deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing back in October.

The Bronx, New York-born MC is currently working on her first studio album, which is expected to be released in early 2018.
