Cardi B makes history again with simultaneous top 10 hits

Raven VaronaCardi B has made Billboard Hot 100 history once again, thanks to hit "Bodak Yellow" and her feature on G-Eazy's "No Limit." 

With both tracks at number 7 and number 8 on the chart, respectively, Cardi has not only scored her second consecutive top 10 on the chart, but can now say that her first two Hot 100 entries have both reached the top 10.

This achievement now makes her the fourth female rapper to have her first two Hot 100 hits reach the top 10. 

The other three female rappers to ever accomplish the same are Neneh Cherry in 1989, Lil Mama in 2007 and Iggy Azealea in 2014.

However, Iggy and Cardi are the only two female rappers have their first two Hot 100 hits in the top 10 simultaneously.   

Iggy did it in 2014 with "Fancy" and "Problem."

If "No Limit" goes to number one on the Hot 100, Cardi will become the first female rapper with back-to-back number one hit tracks.

Cardi also has the chance to be the first female rapper to have three Hot 100 entries land in the top 10 of the chart with Migos' "Motorsport." She, along with Nicki Minaj, are featured on that song. 

"Bodak Yellow" helped Cardi make Billboard history when it hit #1 on the Hot 100 chart in September. She was the first female rapper to top the chart -- without the help of any other artist -- since Lauryn Hill in 1998.

She also became the fifth female rapper in the history of the Hot 100 to hit #1.
