This song sure took it's sweet time once it hit #1. It also spent a week in almost every position in the top 10! It spent about as much time climbing as descending though because I simply could not get enough of this song. "I'm in a good place right now and I want to stun," Cardi B explained to Billboard. (Billboard, I think she said stunt, btw). Well, she sure stunned - only the second female rapper to hit #1 unaccompanied (the first was Lauryn Hill nearly twenty years ago, and she sang on her song as well as rapped).
This rap cruises on Cardi's personality - she tells her story of rising up - no more dancing, she's legit working to get her money. She's deservedly proud of her accomplishments and takes down anyone who thinks less of her or her success. notwithstanding jealous bitches who could only hope to fix their teeth or be paid to appear at clubs. It couldn't have been a better opening salvo, and 2018 is already starting to look like her year.
