Cardi B's breakthrough year keeps getting bigger, and now the rapper has earned a historic first on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart: She becomes the first woman to chart her first three entries on the list in the top 10 simultaneously.
On the Nov. 18-dated chart, the Bronx native's former six-week No. 1, "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)," holds at No. 2, while she debuts at No. 5 with "Motorsport," a collaboration with Migos and Nicki Minaj. The latter opens at No. 2 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales chart with 37,000 downloads sold in the week ending Nov. 2, according to Nielsen Music.

On Wednesday (Nov. 1), N.E.R.D. kept their word and unleashed their comeback record "Lemon," featuring Rihanna, on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show. The effervescent single is accompanied by a new video, which briefly features the Bajan songstress and a bald-headed model, who eventually steals the show.
From the onset, Riri is sitting at the edge of the bed with some hair clippers in hand. Then, she proceeds to shave off the hair from the model, who later becomes a dance-happy machine. As the newly bald model struts throughout an empty bike store in her tank top and baggy jeans, Riri's boastful verse serves as her soundtrack.
"This ain't a scrimmage, motherf*cker we ain't finished, I told you we won't stop," raps Riri with zeal. Despite their absence in the video, N.E.R.D.'s front-man, Pharrell Williams, punches in with a colorful verse of his own. "Hate! Bad b*tches wanna be my bae/ Hate! Hold me down like the C.I.A/ Hate! Side of my car, tryna see my face/ Hate! Want me to beat it like the T.I. case," raps Williams.

Nicki Minaj has stepped forward to address critics of her collaboration with Cardi B and Migos.
Since her shot to the mainstream this summer, Cardi B has been rumored to be having beef with Nicki Minaj and now that they will be featured on the same tack together for the first time, here comes the conspiracy theorists. Some folks on Twitter are alleging that Nicki didn’t know about the collaboration because she believed that it was just another song with Migos, but the Young Money rapper is calling the claims bogus.
“I was on the song w/Quavo. No one else was on it. He called & asked if I think we should put Bardi on it, I said “ok let’s do it”. The end,” she wrote on Twitter before adding, “Migos weren’t even on it yet. Just Quavo. The conspiracy theories r just so tired. Relax. Breathe. Imagine me not knowing who on a song w/me.”
“Anything w/my name on it gets approved by me. It can’t even go on a streaming service w/o me hearing it & giving written approval,” she added. “These are men in our culture who simply refuse to let it go. They don’t do this to male M.C.’s. But yo #Motorsport #1 added on urban radio.”
