If you asked anyone at the beginning of 2017 who would be the breakout star of this year’s music scene, few would have predicted Cardi B. But that’s the very title the Bronx-born Afro-Dominican rapper and former star of Love & Hip Hop: New York snatched. Her juggernaut track “Bodak Yellow” turned everyone’s heads, forcing them to pay attention to the pint-sized rapper with the huge personality. When the track landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, she became the first female rapper to have a solo No. 1 hit since Lauryn Hill in 1998. However, it’s not just her music that’s caused people to stan. From her iconic “high/low” fashion looks to her shoutout to Colin Kaepernick at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, Cardi B has become a consummate entertainer on and off the microphone.
