Cardi B continues to make history on the Billboard music charts.
Migos’ song “MotorSport,” of which she appears on with Nicki Minaj, leapfrogged from No. 15 to No. 6 on the Hot 100 tally. This marks the first time a female rapper has earned three top 10 singles (within the calendar year).
Let’s break it down: First it was “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” which was No. 1 on the Hot 100 for three weeks in a row. Then came G-Eazy’s “No Limit,” featuring A$AP Rocky and Cardi, which is currently at No. 10, and now “Motorsport.”
Outside of the Hot 100 chart, "MotorSport" jumped from No. 9 to No. 5 on the Streaming Songs chart with 31.7 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen Music. The song also sold 15,000 downloads last week sold, up 44 percent), as it moved from No. 37 to No. 34 on the Radio Songs chart.
Cardi B passes two other female rappers who had two Hot 100 entries in the top 10. Lil Mama first achieved the feat with her 2007 debut hit "Lip Gloss" and her collaborative song "Shawty Get Loose," featuring Chris Brown and T-Pain.
Iggy Azalea became the second female rapper to achieve the feat with her 2014 debut single "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, and with Ariana Grande's collabo single "Problem," which finished at No. 2 in the same year.
Congrats to Cardi B—she's still making money moves.
