Cardi B Just Made History Again With Her Latest Single “Up”

Cardi B is in the business of making history, and she did so once more this week when new single “Up” debuted at number one on Billboard‘s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. As Billboard notes, the feat makes her the first to debut in the chart’s top spot with two consecutive singles as lead artist (the former being last year’s “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion), and the first woman to hit the top spot with two consecutive singles of any type. Drake set the latter record back in 2016, after featuring on Rihanna’s “Work” then releasing his own single “Summer Sixteen.”

What’s more, “Up” debuted at number two on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, making Cardi the first female rapper to debut so high without any features since Lauryn Hill hit number one with “Doo Wop (That Thing),” back in 1998. On Twitter, Cardi celebrated her massive success, writing, “I want to say thank you to all my fans and supporters this is BIG for me .I wanted to beat my last solo single number & I over succeeded.First time a female rapper debut top 5 since Lauren.This is pop girl shit but I’m not pop.”
