More than just a good luck, Cardi B made history as the first female rapper to hit number one without any features since Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)" back in 1998.
Cardi received a platinum plaque along with an intimate celebration with her closest friends and family following her hitting number one.
