"I Like It," Cardi’s song with Bad Bunny and J. Balvin, follows her single “Bodak Yellow” in the No. 1 spot.

The record means Cardi has surpassed four female rapers who each had a No. 1 on the chart: Lauryn Hill, with "Doo Wop (That Thing)" in 1998; Lil' Kim, with "Lady Marmalade," with Christina Aguilera, Mya and P!nk in 2001; Shawnna, as featured on Ludacris' "Stand Up" in 2003; and Iggy Azalea, with "Fancy" featuring Charli XCX in 2014.
