Cardi B starts the new year with more "Billboard" Hot 100 success 

Raven VaronaCardi B is kicking the new year off right by making more history on the Billboard Hot 100.

As of Tuesday, Cardi became only the third artist -- and first rapper -- to have her first three Billboard Hot 100 entries reside in the top 10 of the chart simultaneously.   

Only Ashanti and legendary rock band The Beatles have accomplished the same.  

The three tracks in question are Cardi's debut hit single "Bodak Yellow," G-Eazy's "No Limit," featuring vocals from her and A$AP Rocky, and Migos' "MotorSport," which also features guest vocals from Cardi and Nicki Minaj

"No Limit" is currently at number four, MotorSport at number seven and "Bodak Yellow" at number 10 on the chart. 

Overall, Cardi is one of only 15 acts who've ever had three songs period in the top 10 simultaneously, and the first to do so since EDM DJ-production duo The Chainsmokers in March of 2017.   

She's the first female to achieve the feat since Ariana Grande and Iggy Azealea in August of 2014.

Last year, Cardi's "Bodak Yellow" helped her 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.
