Just eight months after freaking out over her first encounter with Beyoncé, Cardi B has already broken one of Bey’s Billboard records!
One week after smashing Taylor Swift’s Apple Music streaming record with new alum, Invasion of Privacy, the “Be Careful” rapper has surpassed Beyoncé with the highest number of songs by a solo female act charting on the Billboard Hot 100 simultaneously, according to The Fader.
Beyonce set the record with 12 entries from her last album, Lemonade. The former Love & Hip Hop star also has 12 entries from her debut album, but her Bruno Mars collaboration “Finesse (Remix)” was enough to give her 13, dethroning Queen Bey.
Drake holds the record for the highest amount of songs for any artist, with 24 songs charting simultaneously.
