Cardi B is off to a good start this year after she beat Beyoncé as the first woman with five simultaneous top 10 hits on the Billboard Top Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
Cardi B, born Belcalis Almanzar, is the first woman and the third act to have five songs on the chart in a span of one week. Among her songs that landed on the Top Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart are collaborations with various artists including Bruno Mars, G-Eazy, Nicki Minaj, and Migos.
The rapper's collaboration with Bruno Mars' New jack swing-inspired "Finesse" is at the top of the charts. The 1990s-inspired track reached 16-1 in its first full tracking week, following its debut on the Jan. 13 list. This feat marks Cardi B's second number one on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. It succeeded "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" which accumulated a six-week stint from September to October 2017.
"Finesse" is also a triple winner after it pulled impressive numbers on the chart's Streaming, Airplay Gainer, and Digital prizes. The upbeat track had 87,000 downloads in the week ending Jan. 11 and landed on the top of the R&B/Hip-Hop Streaming Songs charts with 38.3 million U.S. plays. It also amassed 11 million in radio audience for the week ending Jan. 14 under the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay charts.
Aside from "Finesse," Cardi B also landed in the top 10 of Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for her collaboration with G-Eazy in "No Limit." The song dropped from its number two spot to number three. "Motorsport," Cardi B's work with Nicki Minaj and Migos, slid to number four from number three and "Bartier Cardi" climbed up the charts to number seven from number nine. Meanwhile, "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" maintains its number 10 spot on the charts.
Cardi B topped Beyoncé with her latest feat on the Top Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts. She and the "Drunk In Love" singer initially tied with four songs, a feat the rapper accomplished in the week ending Jan. 13 and Jan. 6. The U.S.-native also beat other artists to tie the knot with famous rappers Kendrick Lamar and Drake for the most concurrent top 10 songs. She landed on the number five spot in the top 10 of the Jan. 20 list.
The New York rapper may soon have six songs under her name. Cardi B is working on another track with Yo Gotti. The "Juice" singer gave a preview of the track on social media.
