Lauryn Hill & Cardi B Make History… The Only Female Artists With A #1Hit on Billboard’s Hot 100

For the first time in 19 years, a female rapper has hit #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart without any assistance from another credited artist, according to Billboard.

Cardi B, the wildly outspoken Love & Hip Hop: New York star, has nabbed the crown with her breakout hit, “Bodak Yellow.”

The only other woman to accomplish this feat was Lauryn Hill in 1998 when she released “Doo Wop (That Thing)” minus The Fugees.

Overall, Cardi is only the fifth female rapper to ever top the chart. She joins Hill, Lil Kim, Iggy Azalea and Shawnna, who was featured on Ludacris’ “Stand Up” in 2003.
