The third time’s the charm for Cardi B…
The 25-year-old half-Dominican rap sensation’s collaboration with Maroon 5, “Girls Like You,” has reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart dated September 29, after six weeks as the Lady in Waiting at No. 2.
The track dethrones Drake‘s “In My Feelings,” which led the list for 10 weeks.
“Girls Like You,” released on 222/Interscope Records and driven in part by the buzz of its female star-studded video, becomes the 1,078th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 60-year history.
The track tops the Radio Songs chart for a ninth week with 127.6 million in audience impressions in the week ending September 23, up 2 percent, according to Nielsen Music.
Cardi B, already the only female rapper with two Hot 100 No. 1s, extends her record, as “Girls Like You” becomes her third. Her debut smash “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” led for three weeks beginning October 7, 2017, and “I Like It,” with Bad Bunny and J Balvin topped the July 7 chart.
“Girls Like You” was originally released by Maroon 5-only on the band’s 2017 album Red Pill Blues; Cardi B joined for its single remix.
