Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" — the lead single from her forthcoming album, Reputation — held the No. 1 slot for three weeks.

While making it to the apex of the Hot 100 is a tremendous honor in and of itself, Cardi also made history in the process.

According to Billboard, Cardi B is only the second female rapper to lead the chart in its 59-year history without anyone else on the featured track.

Lauryn Hill was the last person to accomplish this with her hit "Doo-Wop (That Thing)" back in 1998, which was nearly 19 years ago. That's not bad company to keep, especially considering Hill is a legend in the game. Cardi B's ascent to No. 1 also makes her the fifth female rapper to ever reach the zenith of the Hot 100.

As the news of Cardi's historic feat spread, people on Twitter celebrated with GIFs.

Cardi B going #1 feels like a win for all of us. We did that. I’m singing Bodak Yellow to every Black person I see.
