Cardi B. Makes History

Dominican Republic Native Cardi B makes it big in today’s music industry. Many have heard of her or have become familiar with her as a result of the hit tv show, Love & Hip Hop. What some don’t know is that she’s also an artist. Cardi’s smash-hit single entitled, Bodak Yellow has become a hot commodity! You’ve probably heard it before, as the song is being blasted on the radio, as well as being played on almost everyone’s Snapchat story.

This is record-breaking because Cardi B the first female rapper to have a song hit #1 on the charts, without a featuring artist, since Lauryn Hill in 1998. This is a huge! Considering that she is an upcoming artist, the fact that she’s female makes her underestimated by many. However, her gender does not hold her back.
The Mecca of Excellence is rooting for you Cardi, and can’t wait for you to come out with more smash hits!
