Cardi B is seriously having the time of her life – and she is not afraid to show it. The Bartier Cardi rapper took to social media to celebrate making history today.
Just a year after storming into the mainstream with her record-breaking single Bodak Yellow, the 25-year-old, who is due to give birth any minute now, is clearly not going anywhere as she becomes the first female rapper with two billboard Hot 100 No. 1s with I Like It and Bodak Yellow.
The heavily pregnant rapper has been dubbed hip hop’s fairy-tale princess thanks to her unlikely and quick rise to fame – and it seems the Cardi train is not slowing down for anybody. Not even for Cardi, who has admitted she struggles with breathing in the last stages of pregnancy.
I look crazy guys but I’m Soo happy #1 on the Billboard !!!!! A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on Jul 2, 2018 at 11:54am PDT Cardi celebrated the news with her husband Offset in an Instagram video in the usual Cardi way as she filmed herself excited about the achievement. ‘I’m Number one!’ she said waved into the camera as Offset sat beside her in a car driving.
‘We are number one!’ She added: ‘I’m so excited. I like it when we number one.’ ‘Now we just waiting on baby girl,’ she said referring to pending arrival of her first child with the Migos rapper. ‘I’m so happy.
Thank you J Balvin. Thank you Bad Bunny.’ I Like It, which also features Bad Bunny and J Balvin, has moved from No. 2 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

According to Billboard the former Love and Hip Hop reality TV star have passed four women rappers – Lauryn Hill, Lil Kim, Shawnna Iggy Azeala who previously topped the tally with one No. 1 each. Cardi B is also the first woman soloist with two Hot 100 No. 1s from a debut project during this decade.
Smashing records isn’t the only thing Cardi has to celebrate in the last year as she recently revealed that she has been secretly married to Offset since September – even though the pair were publically engaged in October.
After speculation around their nuptials mounted, the rapper took it upon herself to explain why she kept the whole thing quiet.
Taking to the social media site, Cardi wrote: ‘This why I name my album Invasion Of Privacy cause people will do the most to be [nosy] about your life. Well, fuck it.’ She added: ‘There are so many moments that I share with the world and then there are moments that I want to keep for myself! Getting married was one of those moments!
