Cardi B made Billboard chart history as the first woman rapper to have two No. 1 hits. Last year, with her summer anthem “Bodak Yellow,” she nabbed the title of the first solo female rapper to get a No. 1 since Lauryn Hill. Now, she’s done it two summers in a row with “I Like It,” her Spanglish hit featuring J Balvin and Bad Bunny, which landed at the top of this week’s chart. It knocks down XXXTentacion’s “SAD!” “I Like It” is both J Balvin and Bad Bunny’s first No. 1. Another fact : Cardi is now the first artist since Macklemore & Ryan Lewis to get two No. 1s from a debut album, and is the first woman to do so since Lady Gaga.
