Rihanna Congratulates Cardi B on Chart Triumph with Best Gift Ever
Cardi B’s week has been filled with congratulations after her hit single “Bodak Yellow” dethroned Taylor Swift from the No. 1 spot on the Hot 100.
On Thursday (Sept. 28) Cardi posted a video of a massive Fenty Beauty haul on her Instagram story. “Look what I got!” she yelled off camera as she showed off the lavish, killer gift from Rihanna. She added, “I know you make-up artists is jealous.”
After her single pushed “Look What You Made Me Do” to No. 3, Cardi B received a gorgeous arrangement of flowers from Swift as well.
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).”
