Cardi B surpasses Lauryn Hill with longest-running No.1 by solo female rapper

It's official.

Last month, Cardi B—accompanied by "Bodak Yellow"—became the first female rapper in nearly 20 years to go to No.1 without any other featured credited artist.

The Bronx native is taking over.

Following her achievement, Cardi detailed her upcoming album, promised fans a freestyle, and shared a snippet of a new song.
