Just weeks after the star’s hit single broke records for marking only the second time a female rapper with no featured artists claimed the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100, she’s managed to make headlines again. Billboard reports Cardi B’s jam topped the charts for a third week, making her the only solo female rapper EVER to hold the coveted spot for that long. Previously, Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” made history for achieving that same honor for two weeks total back in 1998. Following her success, Cardi B took social media to indicate that success is not all it’s cracked up to be. She recently tweeted, “These streets really don’t love you,” “fame ain’t what it seems,” and “I feel so down & I wish my man wasn’t so far to hug me up.” Janet Jackson Makes Rare Red Carpet Appearance in Skintight Leather Skirt On Instagram, she shared similar sentiments but also thanked her fans. “I have been having such a sentimental sad day today but I feel sooo much better now,” she wrote. “Thank you, everybody, for streaming and buying and sharing BODAK YELLOW THIRD WEEK.” We’re here for you, Cardi.
