AceShowbiz - Cardi 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 Taylor 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 Nicki 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 Lauryn 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."
