The 🔥🔥🔥 summer anthem "I Like It," which features Bad Bunny and J Balvin, has been a favorite among fans and casual listeners since the release of the Bronx native's debut album, Invasion of Privacy, which dropped in April.

Of course, this isn't Cardi's first time atop the Hot 100. Last year, she scored her first No. 1 with "Bodak Yellow," a knockout song that enjoyed a steady ascent to the top spot.

Cardi originally made history when "Bodak Yellow" went No. 1 and marked first time any woman rapper had a hit atop the chart since Lauryn Hill's "Do Wop (That Thing)" in 1998. Cardi isn't just breaking new ground in the rap arena. She's the first woman solo artist to have two No. 1 singles from a debut album since Lady Gaga did it with The Fame, released in 2008.
