If Cardi goes #1, Nicki is going to be pissed. Nicki Minaj has never gone number one solo. Only Lauryn Hill has done it... Brief Cardi B is in reaching distance of the #1 spot. Literally. The reality star turned real rap star is enjoying colossal success with her single ‘Bodak Yellow,’ which this week has climbed to a new peak on the US chart. Full In the newly publicized edition of the Billboard Hot 100, it’s been revealed that ‘Yellow’ has moved #3 to #2. By doing so, the track officially makes history. For, it has become tied with Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Anaconda’ as the highest charting solo female rap song of the decade. Its numbers will be expanded on in our upcoming Chart Check, but what is immediately clear to see is that Cardi is on the cusp of staging a major unseating. Take from that what you will. She has her work cut out for her given the stiff competition from the likes of Taylor Swift and Sam Smith. But never say never.
