She is currently featured on the April cover of Cosmopolitan after several recent cover appearances which include Rolling Stone, The New York Times Magazine, i-D Magazine, and CR Fashion Book to name a few. Cardi B made history last year with the release of her breakout hit “Bodak Yellow.” The now 5x platinum smash hit spent three historic weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 – the first solo #1 by a female hip-hop artist in nearly two decades. Furthermore, “Bodak Yellow” is the #1 certified debut song in the last year and is one of the Top Ten certified songs released in the past year.
Undoubtedly 2017’s greatest hip-hop phenomenon,Cardi B followed “Bodak Yellow” with two massive hit singles, G-Eazy’s “No Limit (Ft. A$AP Rocky and Cardi B)” and “MotorSport” by Migos, Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, both of which reached the top 10 on Billboard’s “Hot 100” and were swiftly rejoined by “Bodak Yellow” to make history as the first female rapper to land her first three entries in the chart’s top 10 as well as the first female artist to achieve the same on the “Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” chart.” As if that were not enough, with the release of “Bartier Cardi” and Bruno Mars’s “Finesse (Remix) [Feat. Cardi B],” the latter of which is now certified 2x platinum, Cardi B made history yet again, surpassing Beyoncé as the first woman to have five top 10 singles simultaneously on the “Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs” chart.
In addition to her recent iHeart Radio Music Awards triumph, Cardi B hasreceived a stunning series of top honors, among them two GRAMMY® nods (for “Best Rap Performance” and “Best Rap Song”), two BET Awards nominations(for “Best New Artist” and “Best Female Hip Hop Artist”), a Soul Train Music Award, and five 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards including “Single of the Year,” “Best New Hip Hop Artist,” “Hustler of the Year,” “Made-You-Look Award,” and “Best Mixtape” (for “GANGSTA BITCH MUSIC, VOL. 2”).
