Watching Cardi B rise, the way she has, has been an incredible experience. A lot of people latched onto Cardi B early, back when she was still dancing in the clubs. At a time when bartenders took the game over, Cardi B proved dancers could still dominate.
Cardi B took her popularity to “Love & Hip Hop” and helped bring new life to the show. Immediately, Cardi B was a fan favorite, and she let the people know her second season on the show was her last. Prior to the reunion show, Cardi B signed a huge deal with Atlantic Records.
When the summer hit, Cardi B delivered “Bodak Yellow” and the song became an anthem. Last week, the song reached number two on the Hot 100, with projections to go number one. Finally, Cardi B topped the charts and she is the first female solo rapper since Lauryn Hill, since “Doo Wop (That Thing),” in 1998, to top the charts.
