Cardi B can now count all of her No. 1 hits on one hand. Billboard announced on Monday (March 22) that the Bronx rapper notched her fifth chart-topper on the Billboard Hot 100 as “Up” soared from No. 6 to No. 1 this week.

Cardi performed the braggadocios tune as part of her memorable medley at last week’s Grammy Awards alongside Megan Thee Stallion. “Up” reaches the Hot 100 apex in its sixth week on the chart after debuting at No. 2 in February.

“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,” an excited Cardi B wrote on Instagram in response to the news. “Yoooooo shit is amazing yoooooo. I got no words. Actually, I got a lot of words but I can’t type it all NUMBER 1!”

The 28-year-old extends her record of having the most No. 1s of any woman rapper. Cardi’s No. 1 history outside of “Up” includes “Bodak Yellow,” “I Like It” with J Balvin and Bad Bunny, Maroon 5’s “Girls Like You” and “WAP.”

“Up” collected 22 million streams and 18,000 downloads during the week ending March 15. Cardi B hopped on Instagram Live to thank the haters and claimed her spat with Candace Owens and Conservative chatter only added streams to the track.

“I forgot to thank the insane conservatives that was eating me up the whole entire week,” Cardi said. “Y’all brought traffic to my Grammy performance…. This shit brought streams not only to ‘WAP,’ but also to ‘Up.’”

Cardi B made history earlier in March when her breakout hit “Bodak Yellow” went diamond, which made her the first woman rapper to earn a diamond plaque from the RIAA.
