It's been a year since Cardi B left Love & Hip-Hop New York, VH1's popular reality series that helped catapult the budding rapper to fame.

Last year, her most identified hit, "Bodak Yellow" which went platinum, broke an extensive record, a almost 20 year one, making her the first female rapper to dominate the no. 1 spot on the Hot 100 chart preceding the great Lauryn Hill's 1998 "Doo Wop (That Thing)".

On Jan. 13 the "Bodak Yellow" singer was tied with Beyoncé with four singles on the chart at the same time.

Her tracks "Motorsport", "Bartier Cardi" and "Bodak Yellow" sit at No. 4, No. 7 and No. 10, respectively.

Thanks to her guest spot on Bruno Mars' single, "Finesse Remix", she is now number one on the list.

In the R&B chart's 60-year history, Cardi is the first woman and the third artist to have five singles in the Top 10 in a week. She landed on the number five spot in the top 10 of the January 20 list. The only other female artist to achieve such a feat was Lauryn Hill back in 1998 with her chart-topper, "Doo Wop (That Thing)".

With "Finesse" now holding the No. 3 position on the Billboard Hot 100, there's a chance the track could become Cardi's second No. 1 single. TMZ spilled the tea that Becalis could be on her way to breaking records at the box office after signing her first movie deal. According to a TMZ source, Cardi has turned down other gigs because she'll be filming during that month. The song has also been nominated for two 2018 Grammy awards: Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.
