Cardi B Earns Third No. 1 Hit as Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” Tops Billboard Hot 100
The perpetual glow-up of Cardi B continues. Today (Sept. 24), the folks at Billboard reported that Bardi had once again secured the top spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This time, it was a guest verse on Maroon 5's "Girls Like You" that earned her the No. 1.
"Girls Like You" marks Cardi's third time reaching the No. 1 spot, also making her the first female rapper to have three songs top the Billboard Hot 100. In other words, this is a pretty big deal.
While out in Paris, Cardi shared her excitement for topping the Billboard Hot 100 on Instagram. "Bonjour, you dirty slut," she said. "We out here in Paris and I'm so happy because 'Girls Like You' is No. 1. This my third No. fuckin' 1. I don't give a fuck if I'm a feature on that song, bitch. I'm on that shit, bitch." She also revealed the history of how the song came together despite her team feeling it wasn't a good look.
It's also worth noting that in going No. 1, "Girls Like You" dethrone's Drake's 29-week streak at the top spot with his song "In My Feelings." The lengthy streak broke Usher's previous record of the most weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100 in a single year since 2004.
Cardi previously reached the No. 1 spot with her breakout single "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" last fall before her Bad Bunny and J Balvin-assisted single, "I Like It," went platinum this past July. With two No. 1 singles from her platinum-selling debut album (Invasion of Privacy) and a new No. 1 hit through a standout guest verse, Bardi is taking no Ls in 2018.
In other Billboard chart news, Eminem's vicious Machine Gun Kelly diss, "Killshot," has unsurprisingly also landed on the chart. This week it holds down the No. 3 spot, and in doing so has earned Em his 20th top 10 Billboard Hot 100 single. The song also broke a YouTube streaming record, being viewed 38.1 million views in its first 24 hours of release.
Congrats to Cardi on her newest achievement.
