Cardi B Teams With Lyft for Special Feature for New York City Riders
Just in time for the weekend, Cardi B has teamed up with Lyft to offer a cool feature for New York City riders. In honor of "Bodak Yellow" hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, the code "BardiGang" will now activate a special feature in New York City where the Lyft vehicle icon gets replaced by a graphic featuring the rapper's face on platinum record.
Cardi celebrated the promotion on Twitter, writing "😍😍😍 Ride wit me on @lyft NYC!! Use code 'BardiGang.'" The promotion will run from Sept. 29 through Oct. 1.
The success of "Bodak Yellow" isn't only benefiting Lyft users. According to Cardi B's dentist, Dr. Cartrise Austin, the song has led to an increase in business. “Since the song ‘Bodak Yellow,’ that just went No. 1 this week, went out, things have been incredible.” She told TMZ, “My business has literally tripled.”
After scoring the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100, Cardi then received her first ever platinum record for "Bodak Yellow." She wrote on Instagram, “PLATINUM!!!!!! Thank you BARDIGANG, FRIENDS, Family, Radio personality ,DJs,ARTIST!!!! Made it happen for me !!!”
Cardi's No. 1 record was also a victory for female rappers, as "Bodak Yellow" became the first song by a female solo rapper to top the chart in 19 years. Before that, Lauryn Hill and the song "Doo Wop (That Thing)" was the last song to achieve the feat.
The achievement led to praise from many of Cardi's peers. “Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement. Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it,” Nicki Minaj tweeted, while Missy Elliot wrote,“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🙏🏾.”
