Cardi B wasn't lying when she said "For the record, I set records" in one of her latest hits, "I Do."After the recent release of her new album Invasion of Privacy and widely streamed performance at the Coachella music festival, the rap artist has now made music history by breaking Beyonce’s record for Most simultaneous Billboard US Hot 100 entries by a female.
With a total of 13 tracks, Cardi B bests Queen Bey’s claim of 12, which was achieved when she released her album Lemonade during the chart week of 14 May 2016.
The positions of each song are as follows:
• No. 8: "I Like It" by Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin
• No. 10: "Finesse" by Bruno Mars & Cardi B
• No. 11: "Be Careful"
• No. 21: "Drip" (featuring Migos)
• No. 23: "I Do" (featuring SZA)
• No. 28: "Ring" (featuring Kehlani)
• No. 32: "Bartier Cardi" (featuring 21 Savage)
• No. 38: "Get Up 10"
• No. 39: "Best Life" (featuring Chance The Rapper)
• No. 43: "Bickenhead"
• No. 50: "Thru Your Phone"
• No. 57: "She Bad" by Cardi B & YG
• No. 58: "Money Bag"
Out of the list, 12 of the 13 tracks featured on the chart come from Cardi B's debut full-length album Invasion of Privacy, which was released on 6 April 2018.
The other song is "Finesse," a collaboration she recently did with popstar Bruno Mars.
Her current album now features an array of hit singers such as SZA, 21 Savage, Migos, Bad Bunny, Chance the Rapper, and some which already have Guinness World Records titles, such as Reggae artist J Balvin.
Though fans are impressed with Cardi B’s latest break out achievement in the industry, this isn’t the first time the Hip Hop artist has surpassed Beyonce on the charts.
Earlier in January, she became the Most simultaneous Billboard US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Top 10 entries by a female in one week since the list began thanks to her hit songs "Finesse (Remix)", "No Limit", "Bartier Cardi", "Bodak Yellow" and "Motorsport".
While adding a Guinness World Records title to her collection of accolades is certainly impressive – we don’t expect the momentum of her progress to stop anytime soon.
As of now, she has more record titles than fellow female rapper Nicki Minaj.
