“Congratulations to a fellow NEW YAWKA on a RECORD BREAKING achievement,” Nicki tweeted to the Bronx native. “Bardi, this is the only thing that matters!!! Enjoy it￼￼￼ @iamcardib.”
The history-making feat makes Cardi the first female rapper in almost a decade to earn the top spot for a solo single since Lauryn Hill’s 1998 “Doo Wop (That Thing)”. She’s also the first Latina rapper to take No. 1 during Latinx Heritage Month.
