Cardi B‘s latest single “UP” has taken the top spot on this week’s Billboard Hot 100, officially extending her lead as the woman rapper with the most No. 1s in history.

According to Billboard, the track saw a surge in streams and downloads after the artist performed a medley of “UP” and “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion at the 2021 GRAMMYs. The single logged 22.7 million U.S. streams and 18,000 downloads in the week ending March 18, jumping up five spaces from last week’s No. 6 position.

Bardi took to social media to announce the news and give thanks. “I want God to come see me in my dreams when I take my nap today so I can kiss his feet and tell him how much I love him !!! Yoooooo sh*t is amazing yoooooo .I got no words .Actually I got a lot of words but I can’t type it all,” she wrote. “NUMBER 1!!!!!

“UP” marks Cardi’s fifth overall No. 1 following “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion in August 2020, “Girls Like You” with Maroon 5 in September 2018, “I Like It” with Bad Bunny and J Balvin in April 2018 and “Bodak Yellow” — which just received a diamond plaque — in October 2017. The single also makes her the first and only woman rapper to have two No. 1 entries without an accompanying artist.
