Cardi B's 'Bodak Yellow' Hits One Billion Views On YouTube

Cardi B continues to make money moves!

The rapper has reached another milestone with, “Bodak Yellow,” which just reached one billion views on YouTube, reports Music Times. 

She now has multiple music videos with more than one billion views via her channel, if we consider collaborations and features.

Take her 2018 single “I Like It” alongside Bad Bunny and J. Balvin — for example — which currently has 1.3 billion views.

Cardi’s “Bodak Yellow” first made history after it topped Billboard’s Hot 100 chart for three consecutive weeks following its release.

Thanks to the breakout single, Cardi B’s debut album, “Invasion of Privacy” achieved huge success.

In April, it became the first album by a female rapper to spend three full years on the Billboard 200, dethroning Lauryn Hill for her album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” according to REVOLT. 

On Twitter, Cardi B shared the budget and backstory for “Bodak Yellow” revealing that it only cost $15,000 to make — talk about balling on a budget!

“Fifteen thousand dollars, A billion views later!!!!! Wow that’s crazy ! Super dope,” wrote the Bronx native via Twitter in celebration of the news. “Thank you all for all the support throughout the years… Back to the lab. Love & appreciate ya’ll .”

As of right now, Cardi B is reportedly working on her sophomore album and is expecting baby No. 2 with her husband Offset.

“I haven’t felt like happy, happy…Like I’m happy every single time that I accomplish something,” revealed the 28-year-old in an interview with Stationhead following the pregnancy announcement. “Like when ‘Up’ went No. 1 I was happy, or when I get deals I get really happy. But yet, I’m still overwhelmed because I’m thinking about the next record, what can I do next, what can make me a billionaire. But this pregnancy has [brought] me like a little peace and it’s something that is so dear [to me]. I really feel like I’m starting a new chapter in my house, in my life.”

We love to see that Cardi B is still achieving residual success thanks to the song that continues to take her to the top!
