Cardi B Joins The Beatles & Ashanti As Third Artist In History With First 3 Hot 100 Hits in Top 10 Simultaneously; First Rapper To Ever Do So

Posted January 2, 2018

The new year just started, and already Cardi B is continuing her epic winning streak that reigned on most of 2017.  This week, it was announced that she has become the first rapper and the third act ever to have their first three Billboard Hot 100 entries simultaneously in the top 10, following only The Beatles and Ashanti.

Cardi B becomes just the third act – and the first rapper – to place her first three Billboard Hot 100 entries in the chart’s top 10 simultaneously, joining only The Beatles and Ashanti in achieving the feat.

The Bronx rapper earns the honor as G-Eazy’s “No Limit,” featuring A$AP Rocky and Cardi B, lifts from No. 5 to a No. 4 high on the new Jan. 6-dated Hot 100; Migos, Nicki Minaj and Cardi B’s No. 6-peaking “MotorSport” holds at No. 7; and Cardi B’s former three-week No. 1 debut smash “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” returns to the top 10, rising 12-10.

In 1964, The Beatles achieved the same milestone with “I Want to Hold Your Hand,” “She Loves You,” and “Please Please Me.” Ashanti did it in 2002 with “Foolish,” Fat Joe’s “What’s Luv?,” and Ja Rule’s “Always On Time.” Last month, Bacardi also became the first female rapper to reach the top 10 with her first three Hot 100 entries.

Cardi took to Instagram to thank fans for the milestone.
