Cardi B Nabs Third Number One Single On Billboard Hot 100

Third time's a charm.

Cardi B’s incredible 2018 just keeps getting better. The Bronx-bred MC just nabbed her third number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

She is featured on Super Bowl LIII halftime performers’ Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You,” which has been hovering near the number one slot for weeks. The song dethrones Drake’s monster-hit “In My Feelings,” which was at the number one position for a staggering 10 weeks.

“F**K WITH ME AND MAKE SOME MONEY !!!!” Wrote Cardi on Instagram accompanying a picture of a tweet noting that she is the first female rapper with three Hot 100 number one songs. “Thank you @maroon5 !CORONAS on me !!!”

This is Maroon 5’s fourth number one since 2007, and this is the first pop song to hit the number one slot since January 2018. During this trip around the sun, hip-hop has reigned supreme on the charts thanks to Drake and other musicians in the genre like Childish Gambino, XXXTentacion and Post Malone.

“Maroon 5 takes full control of the lead among duos or groups for the most Hot 100 No. 1s in the 2000s and 2010s; the band passes The Black Eyed Peas, Destiny's Child and OutKast, each with three since the start of that span,” writes Billboard. “Among all acts, Rihanna leads with 14 No. 1s this century (all since her first, "SOS," in 2006).”

Solange's Performance Piece 'Witness!' To Premiere In September

Solange is the composer and director of a special performance piece titled "Witness!" The piece will be performed on September 17 at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany.

"So excited to announce “Witness!” a special performance piece composed and directed by myself at the phenomenal @elbphilharmonie (photo’d here:)," she wrote on Instagram to accompany a photo of the event flyer, which features the picturesque venue. Tickets for the performance go on sale on May 31.

The Houston native is no stranger to elaborate stage productions and intricate, detail-driven performances. She's performed in places such as the Guggenheim and Marfa's Chinati Foundation, so we're sure "Witness!" will be one to remember.

Earlier this year, Solange dropped her performance slot at the Coachella Music and Arts Festival, citing "major production delays" as the cause for cancellation. "She sends her sincerest apologies, and looks forward to performing at Coachella in the future," the official Coachella Twitter page read.

The performance coincides with the release of her latest studio-album, When I Get Home. Check out her announcement below.

YG Releases '4REAL 4REAL' Album Featuring Meek Mill, Tyga, And More

After a brief delay, YG’s fourth studio album, 4REAL 4REAL is finally here. The 14-track project arrived on Friday (May 24) and features guest appearances by Meek Mill, Tyga, Kamaiyah, DaBaby, and more.

The album's release date was initially suspended in light of Nipsey Hussle's untimely death in March 2019. YG included a song, entitled "My Last Words (Nipsey Hussle Tribute)." The track includes audio from YG's speech at Nip's memorial service.

Just hours ahead of the album's release, YG announced that he would be giving a percentage of his album sales to Nip's two children. "I’m giving his kids a percentage of every song on the album,” YG said in a recent interview on Big Boy's Neighborhood. “By the time they get 18, from me, they’re gonna have a bag sitting there.”

YG To Give Percentage Of Album Sales To Nipsey Hussle's Children

YG is gearing up for the release of his new studio album, 4REAL 4REAL. Ahead of the album's Friday release, YG stopped by Big Boy's Neighborhood on Wednesday (May 23), where he discussed his friendship with Nipsey Hussle. He also revealed his plans to donate a percentage of his album sales to Nip's two children.

YG revealed his thoughtful plan when he was asked about the epitaph that is included on the album's cover art.  "I put that 'In Loving Memory of Nip' on the album because I'm giving his kids a percentage of every song on the album. So by the time they hit 18, from me, they gonna have a bag," YG explained. He also noted that he is considering making donations to the family for the next six albums.

Nipsey and YG have been friends since 2010. "I think we did some music the same day," YG said of their first encounter. "After that, we just kept running across each other on some L.A. shit. From that, it just started to build... He ended up being like a big brother to me," YG says. "The brand shit was the thing we talked about all the time, building a brand that's gonna [outlast] you."

4REAL 4REAL was slated to drop earlier this year but was pushed back in light of Nipsey's untimely passing. It now drops this Friday (May 24).
