History was made by Cardi B, and most people didn’t even notice it. The TikTok friendly songstress landed two consecutive chart-toppers and it also landed her in music history.
Cardi B’s song “Up” debuted on Billboard’s Hot R&B at the #1 spot. That Feb 20 chart-topper saw the rapper etch her name in the record book.
“Up” was preceded by “WAP,” a huge song she dropped with Megan Thee Stallion. That song also debuted at the #1 spot. Those two songs cemented Cardi B in the history books as the first artist to post two straight #1 debuts on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop chart as the lead artist.
Cardi B joins Drake, who landed in that spot with “Work” and “Summer Sixteen,” two songs he featured on.
