If you don’t know Cardi B, it’s time get acquainted.
The Bronx-born former stripper’s debut single, “Bodak Yellow,” climbed into the No. 1 spot this week, making her the first solo female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 in 19 years.
The curvy beauty worked as an exotic dancer in the Bronx before breaking into the music industry in 2015 on a remix of Shaggy’s “Boom Boom.” More show biz breaks followed after she joined the cast of VH1’s Love & Hip Hop: New York that same year.
The 24-year-old rapper has also been a featured artist on a number of singles. Perhaps her most notable collaboration was alongside A$AP Rocky on G-Eazy’s “No Limit.”
Cardi has yet to release a full-length record of her own.
