Cardi B

Cardi B's journey from reality television and social media fame to becoming a worldwide record-making superstar is a unique blueprint in hip-hop that remains unmatched to this day. Hailing from the Bronx, she is a significant part of the current surge of women in rap, experiencing unparalleled success in the genre's history. Her breakthrough hit in 2017, "Bodak Yellow," not only became a certified anthem, but also topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart for three consecutive weeks. Prior to her chart-topping success, Cardi B had already captivated audiences with her raw and infectious personality, showcased during her appearances on the VH1 reality television series Love & Hip Hop: New York in 2016 and 2017.

As Cardi B's career progressed, she established herself as an artist, reflecting her raw lifestyle through her music and creating an energy in her tracks that resonated with listeners. Her debut studio album, Invasion of Privacy, made history in 2018 by winning the Best Rap Album Grammy award, making her the first woman to achieve this feat. Her introductory album reached the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart and has since been certified quadruple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Noteworthy tracks like the Latin crossover record "I Like It" featuring J. Balvin also reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, and standout songs such as "Be Careful," "Bartier Cardi," and "Drip" (featuring her husband Offset's group Migos) further solidified her artistry and showcased her range.

Continuing her impressive trajectory, Cardi B shows no signs of slowing down. Her recent chart-topping hits like "WAP" and "Up" have further cemented her status, while she also lends her support to emerging female rappers like GloRilla on Glo's hit single "Tomorrow" and Latto's "Put It On Da Floor." As an Afro-Latina, Cardi B continuously pushes boundaries and leaves an indelible mark on the music industry.
