Cardi B Shades Taylor Swift After Dethroning Her on Billboard Hot 100
Cardi B didn’t have to dance her way to number one on the Billboard Hot 100; she just made Taylor Swift move — literally. The rapper managed to make her way to the number one spot, push T-Swizzle down to number three and make history all at the same time.
According to Billboard, the “Bodak Yellow” rapper is the first female rapper to hit number one on the Hot 100 chart without another credited artist in 19 years. Nine. Teen. Years. With such a historic feat under her belt, Cardi decided to celebrate her big win in New York City.
While she thanked those who helped her get to the top of the charts, the rapper also took the opportunity to have a little fun at the expense of the former #1 single holder, Taylor, in this hilarious Instagram video:
The shaaaaaade! But that was all in good fun, of course. The 24-year-old did make history, so we don’t blame her for having a little bit of fun during her victory speech both on Instagram and at the party thrown for her at Atlantic Records. Even if it did entail a liiiiitle bit of shade thrown at the “Look What You Made Me Do” songstress.
Not only did Cardi get a little party thrown in her honor, the rapper also received a TON of love from her fellow peers. Everyone from Missy Elliott to Offset to even Nicki Minaj — who many thought was feuding with Cardi– sent the rapper messages of congratulations on Twitter.
