People Really Want Cardi B to Knock “Despacito” From Top of the Music Charts

She makes money move and now her fans are looking to help her make major moves on the Billboard charts.

On Monday, Billboard announced that Afro-Dominican rapper Cardi B’s summer trap anthem “Bodak Yellow” rose to #3 on its weekly Billboard Hot 100 chart. Concurrent with that news, Billboard announced that the inescapable Spanish-language smash “Despacito” had reached its 15th week at #1, putting it only one week away from the record set by Mariah Carey and Boyz II Men’s “One Sweet Day.”

In response, Cardi B and Carey’s fans have devised a plan: if Cardi B can hit #1, not only would a woman have the #1 song for the first time in 2017, Carey’s record will remain intact.

A lot of fans on Twitter have been calling for “Bodak Yellow” to nab the top spot.

Some fans even pointed out that, like “Despacito,”“Bodak Yellow” is available in Spanish for those who are looking for their Cardi B fix in another language. Along with two versions of the single, Cardi B will get some major promo this weekend when she performs at MTV’s 34th annual Video Music Awards during the preshow.

With versions in two languages, a televised performance, and the combined forces of Cardi B stans and the Lambily, can “Bodak Yellow” stop “Despacito” in its tracks and give a female rapper the number one song in the country?
