Meanwhile, Balvin told the magazine landing his first No.1 single is a dream come true.

“I’m happy, happy, happy, very happy,” the Colombian reggaeton star said. “I am totally grateful. It is incredible, everything that is happening, and I really have to thank God for this spectacular moment.”

I Like It and Bodak Yellow (Money Moves) are both from Cardi B’s debut studio album Invasion of Privacy. Bodak Yellow climbed to the top of the Hot 100 in October.

Four other female rappers have previously landed No. 1 singles on the Hot 100, including Lauryn Hill with Doo Wop (That Thing) in 1998, Lil’ Kim with Lady Marmalade with Christina Aguilera, Mya and P!nk in 2001. Shawnna was featured on Ludacris’ single Stand Up in 2003, and Iggy Azalea with Fancy featuring Charli XCX in 2014.
