Having their song at the top spot of the Billboard Hot 100 chart is every singer’s dream. Rapper Cardi B is getting to live that dream now with her song “Up” claiming the No. 1 spot on the  Billboard Hot 100 for the first time.

Cardi broke a lot of records yet again as “Up” is now her fifth No. 1 hit. She now holds the record for the most No. 1 songs by a female rapper. This also makes her the first female rapper with two No. 1 songs with no features on them (“Bodak Yellow” being the first). In the period between the week when “Bodak Yellow” went No. 1 in 2017 to now, Cardi is tied for the most No. 1 songs during that stretch, alongside Drake and Ariana Grande.

Cardi was of course ecstatic as she took to Instagram to express her emotions.

“I want God to come see me in my dreams when I take my nap today so I can kiss his feet and tell him how much I love him !!! Yoooooo sh*t is amazing yoooooo .I got no words .Actually I got a lot of words but I can’t type it all NUMBER 1!!!!!”

“Up” is also the second-shortest No. 1 song of all time in terms of song title length, with just two characters. The only No. 1 song shorter than it in name is Britney Spears’ “3.” Crazy right?

We congratulate Cardi B on this momentous occasion and wish her all the best for more successes that are yet to come.
