Even with rumors of Offset cheating, Cardi B is still flourishing. Last week, Billboard announced that the Bronx rapper had tied with Beyoncé in securing four of the top 10 tracks on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart. Now, Cardi has surpassed Bey to become the first woman to have five songs in the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart's top 10. Her guest spot on Bruno Mars' "Finesse" took the No. 1 spot; her assist on G-Eazy’s “No Limit” with ASAP Rocky came in at No. 3; her feature on Migos “Motorsport” alongside Nicki Minaj took No. 4; her 21 Savage-supported track "Bartier Cardi" landed at No. 7; and her breakthrough hit "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" is at No. 10.
Drake and Kendrick Lamar are the only two other artists to accomplish this. Drake did it eight times in 2016, while Lamar did so once in 2017. And to top it off, no other artist has ever had their first five chart entries in the top 10—except Cardi B.
Cardi has spent the last few months accomplishing chart milestones. At the top of the year, it was revealed that she was the only rapper to have her first three Hot 100 singles concurrently in the top 10. At the end of 2017, she was named the first female rapper to have her first three singles in the top 10. And last fall, she became the first female rapper in almost 20 years to top the Hot 100 chart without any guest assists.
