Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” tops the Billboard Hot 100 chart for a third week, marking a new longevity record for a hit by an unaccompanied female rapper. Plus, J Balvin and Willy William’s “Mi Gente” blasts from No. 21 to No. 3, sparked by its newly added featured artist, Beyonce; Imagine Dragons’ “Thunder” rumbles 17-7; and Demi Lovato hits a new best career rank, as “Sorry Not Sorry” rises 10-8 on the latest chart (dated Oct. 21).

With three weeks at No. 1, “Bodak,” released on The KSR Group/Atlantic Records, is now the longest-leading Hot 100 No. 1 for a female rapper without any other billed artists. It passes the only other such leader, Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing),” which ruled for two weeks beginning with its Nov. 14, 1998, debut at No. 1.

“Bodak” dips to No. 2 after two nonconsecutive weeks atop the Streaming Songschart, with 47.6 million U.S. streams (down 1 percent) in the week ending Oct. 5, according to Nielsen Music. It drops 3-4 on Digital Song Sales with 45,000 downloads sold (down 18 percent) in the week ending Oct. 5 and becomes Cardi B’s first top 10 on Radio Songs (11-10), with 72 million all-format audience impressions (up 4 percent) in the week ending Oct. 8.

The breakthrough hit for the Bronx, New York, rapper also spends an eighth week at No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs chart and a sixth frame atop Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.
