Cardi B Equals Beyonce’s Billboard Chart Record




Cardi B joins Beyonce as the only two female artists in history to have four songs on the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart top 10.

The “Bodak Yellow” rapper keeps getting into more exclusive clubs when it comes to the Billboard chart and streaming charts history. It’s no secret that Cardi B had a phenomenal year in 2017 and the new year is already off to a banging start. Not only has she dropped some new music, they all charted on their debut week and now she is the second female artist in history to hold four spots in the top ten of the Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart.

On Thursday, her new lead single “Bartier Cardi” featuring 21 Savage, reach the top ten on the chart. Her breakout hit “Bodak Yellow” is currently at No. 5, “Bartier Cardi” is at No. 9, “MotorSport” with Migos and Nicki Minaj is at No. 3, while “No Limit” with G-Eazy is at No. 2 on the chart. On the heels of her new milestone on Billboard, Cardi B is getting ready to perform at the upcoming Grammy Awards ceremony in New York later this months. She is also nominated for two Grammy’s and is hoping to at least walk away with one. No doubt a Grammy would help cement her place as a new force in hip hop to be reckoned with.

While Cardi B is only the second woman to achieve 4/10 on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip Hop Songs Chart, a couple male rappers have done it already. Eminem, 2 Chainz, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Drake, and Lil Wayne have all achieve the 4/10 on the chart.

Cardi B is currently working on her debut album, a project that she says that she is holding close to her heart to make sure its done properly. There are no release date or title for the project but I guess it will have something to do with Bardi, Cardi, or Bodak.

Kendrick Lamar Recording New Music For “Black Panther” Soundtrack




Kendrick Lamar preps some new music for the “Black Panther” soundtrack and it sounds fire.

After dropping the video for his single “LOVE” featuring Zacari, K-Dot hinted that he has some new music coming out. The Compton rapper has one of the best, if not the best hip hop album of the year, and he is already working on some new music for the new year. One of the projects that he is reportedly working on is the soundtrack for the upcoming Marvel movie Black Panther.

In the middle of the music video “LOVE” a banner quickly appeared then disappeared that reads “B. Panther. Soundtrack. Coming Soon.” The movie is set for release on February 16 which means that we can expect some new music from Kendrick Lamar sometime within the next month. You will likely have to rewatch the video more than twice to catch the hidden message, but eventually you will see it. This shouldn’t at all come as a surprise since Marvel used Kendrick’s classic single “DNA.” in the trailer for the movie that they previewed recently at Comic-Con H in San Diego.

2017 has been a big year for Kendrick Lamar and next year is shaping up to be an even bigger year starting with the upcoming Grammy Awards ceremony where he received seven nominations from his album DAMN. including Album of the Year and Record of the Year for “HUMBLE.”
