Cardi B really broke through mainstream hip hop with the single “Bodak Yellow” and the song has now reached a new milestone over the weekend.
A report by Chart Data illustrates that Cardi B is the quickest female rapper ever to reach the billion view mark. This accolade only adds to the already monstrous diamond-certified status of the single.
Cardi B acknowledged the accomplishment on Monday morning (August 2) with explaining the visuals were done with a modest budget of $15,000. She also plans to make more music for her fans.
“Fifteen thousand dollars, A billion views later,” she wrote. “Wow that’s crazy! Super dope. Thank you all for all the support throughout the years….. Back to the lab. Love & appreciate y’all.”
