Cardi B has notched herself as a chart triple-threat by becoming the first woman to ever have her first three songs simultaneously listed in the top 10 of Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart: "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)" (No. 2), "Motorsport" with Migos and Nicki Minaj (No. 5) and "No Limit" with G-Eazy and A$AP Rocky (No. 10).

All before releasing an album. 

On Sunday (Nov. 19), Cardi provided an update as to why she hasn't felt the need to rush out her debut album after receiving so much acclaim for the singles she's released so far. 

"I have a lot of pressure on me," the 25-year-old MC tweeted. "I have songs stashed up. I just don't think they qualified for my album. Sometimes I think is ready sometimes I think it's not so I'm going to take my time till it's right." 

One day earlier, though, Cardi tweeted a video of her re-discovering a song of hers that might prove worthy of the album.
