Cardi was more than excited from the support from swift, telling People, “That was so beautiful; [Swift is] such a sweetheart. I’ve always been a fan. When I knew it was me and her competing for that No. 1 spot, I was like, ‘Oh why it have to be Taylor Swift?!’ I love her. I don’t really like saying, ‘Knock her off’ - she knocked everybody off!”

“Bodak Yellow” is the first No. 1 single on the Hot 100 by an unaccompanied female rapper since Lauryn Hill’s 1998 “Doo Wop (That Thing).”
