Cardi B just earned her first No. 1.

"Bodak Yellow" has toppled Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" to become the No. 1 song in America, rising from No. 2 to the top spot. Cardi B is just the second female rapper to reach No. 1 without any guest features and the first in 19 years, following Lauryn Hill's firs solo No. 1 "Doo Wop (That Thing)" in 1998. 

According to Nielsen Music, "Bodak" is up 85% in download sales, thanks to a 69-cent iTunes discount, but it has also gained 14% in streaming with 46.4 million U.S. streams and 62 million audience impressions on radio, also up 8%.

With "Bodak," Cardi B is the fifth female rapper to hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100, following Hill in 1998; Lil' Kim in 2001 with Christina Aguilera, Mya and P!nk on "Lady Marmalade"; Shawnna and Ludacris' "Stand Up" in 2003; and Iggy Azalea's breakout hit "Fancy," featuring Charli XCX, in 2014.

The chart-topping news continues Cardi B's ongoing big year. She made a splashy live debut at this year's MTV Video Music Awards and she is currently tied with Kendrick Lamar and DJ Khaled for most BET Hip Hop Award nominations.
