Cardi B fans collectively said “I Like It” to the rapper’s new song with Bad Bunny and J Balvin,
propelling this hip-hop star to a new record. She is now the first female rapper to land two No. 1 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart between “I Like It” and “Bodack Yellow (Money Moves).”
“I Like It” is a revamp of Pete Rodriguez’s “I Like It Like That.” The 1967 song was also remixed in 2015 by The Blackout Allstars as “I Like It (Like That).”
The latest chart-topper for Cardi B marks another achievement for the rapper behind Invasion of Privacy. According to Billboard, she’s the first artist to land two Hot 100 No. 1 songs from a debut album since the days of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ The Heist. Meanwhile, Bad Bunny and Balvin are celebrating their first song to hit No. 1.
