Cardi B scores her second No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “I Like It,” her collaboration with Bad Bunny and J Balvin. She also enters the history books as the first female rapper with two No. 1s. She previously topped the chart with her debut single “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves),” which reigned atop the chart for three weeks in October.
Cardi B passes four female rappers who previously topped the chart with one No. 1 each including Lauryn Hill (“Doo Wop (That Thing)”), Lil’ Kim (“Lady Marmalade”), Shawnna (“Stand Up”), and Iggy Azalea (“Fancy”).
The song appears on Cardi’s debut Invasion of Privacy, which opened atop the Billboard 200 in April. She is the first artist to earn two Hot 100 No. 1s from a debut album since Macklemore & Ryan Lewis did it with “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us” off 2012’s The Heist.
Meanwhile, Bad Bunny and J Balvin earn their first Hot 100 No. 1s. Prior to “I Like It,” Bad Bunny reached No. 36 with “Te Bote,” while Balvin peaked at No. 3 with “Mi Gente” featuring Willy William and Beyoncé.
