Nicki Minaj, Pusha T and More Congratulate Cardi B for “Bodak Yellow” Going No. 1
Cardi B's "Bodak Yellow" has landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, usurping pop goddess Taylor Swift in the process. In the wake of that accomplishment, MCs from all over the map have stepped forth to give the Bronx rapper her props.
One of them was Nicki Minaj, who further damaged any narrative about a perceived beef with the ascendant Bardi. "Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement. Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it💕💞🎀 @iamcardib," wrote Nicki, who broke Aretha Franklin's record for most songs on the Hot 100 earlier this year. She was far from the last to show some love.
Also giving it up for Cardi was Pusha T, who tweeted, "Congrats @iamcardib #1 spot... 💪🏿💪🏿💪🏿." YG, who, like Cardi, reps the Blood gang, also threw some praise Cardi's way. "Kongrats to Cardi B going #1, Blood gang 👌🏾," he said.
Missy Elliott knows more than a thing or two about hitmaking, so it wasn't a surprise to see she also took the time to recognize Cardi B's achievement. "Congratulations @iamcardib for having a #1 record in the country that's not as easy as it seem this huge🙌🏾 May u have continued blessings🙏🏾," said Missy on Twitter.
For her part, Cardi was as gracious as can be. "Every single FEMALE RAPPER CONGRATULATED ME TODAY .Is the best feeling cause I listened to ALL OF THEM," she wrote in a tweet, recognizing the FemCee solidarity at work.
