Daughter of a Dominican, Cardi B makes #1 on Billboard Hot 100

American rap singer, Cardi B, became this week the first woman of Dominican descent to grab a Billboard Hot 100 list for her single “Bodak Yellow “(Money Moves). The New York Times called the song “the rap anthem of the summer.”

Cardi B is Belcalis Almanzar, a New York City girl born from a Dominican father and a Trinidadian mother. Cardi B built her career with the support of her friends on the Internet, to later become a regular cast member of the VH1 reality television series “Love & Hip Hop: New York. In February 2017, she signed her first major label record deal with Atlantic Records.

More outstanding, the Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow” is the first solo Billboard Hot 100 no. 1 by a female rapper this century, the second in history after Lauryn Hill’s “Doo Wop (That Thing)” 19 years ago.
The Carli B nickname is from her childhood, and comes from Bacardi rum.
