AceShowbiz - %cCardi B% has just completed a big musical milestone. Her breakout anthem "Bodak Yellow" is currently sitting comfortably at No. 1 on Billboard Hot 100 after dethroning %cTaylor Swift%'s "Look What You Made Me Do", which previously secured its place atop the chart for three weeks.
Following the announcement, the Bronx femcee took to Instagram to share a video that found her thanking fans for their support. "THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, I haven't even showered son with all the running around," so she captioned the clip. "Loveee you all each and everybody contributed for this. Ya made it happen for me!!! The number 1 WAY!!"
Fellow raptress %cNicki Minaj% later took to Twitter to congratulate Cardi for the achievement. "Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement," the "Anaconda" hitmaker wrote. "Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it @iamcardib."

Cardi's friends and family celebrated the rapper's success with a surprise bash. When attending the party, Cardi couldn't hide her excitement as she thanked everyone who has supported her throughout her hip-hop career. During her speech, Cardi also appeared to throw a subtle shade at Taylor Swift by singing a verse from "Look What You Made Me Do", the former No. 1 which falls to No. 3 on Hot 100 this week.
During an interview with Billboard, however, Cardi claimed that she really loved Taylor's new song. "It was a lovely surprise. It was kinda like a close race. It was like when Obama was running for president," she said. "Like, damn, why'd it have to be Taylor Swift? I like her, I like that damn song."
Despite the buzz, "Look What You Made Me Do" was indeed more short-lived than expected in becoming the chart-topper. Now that "Bodak Yellow" is at No. 1, Cardi B has become the first female rapper to reign on the chart since %cLauryn Hill% in 1998 with "Doo Wop (That Thing)".
"Bodak Yellow" finds Cardi reflecting on her humble beginning as a hip-hop star wannabe and bragging about her newfound success. "I wanted to do a song that is, like, 'You know what? I'm in a good place in my life right now and I want to stun," she said of the track, before adding, "I felt it in my soul--this song is going to be so popping. While I was recording it, every b***h I don't like came into my head."
