Cardi B has become the first female rapper to score two number one singles on Billboard Hot 100. 

The Billboard Hot 100 is the music industry standard record chart in the United States for songs, published weekly by Billboard magazine.

Cardi B's track "I Like It" marks her second chart-topper, after her breakout track "Bodak Yellow".

Her reaction to the news was priceless. She screamed, "Number one! I'm so excited I could win number one! I'm so excited!"

She added, "Now we're just waiting on baby girl," referring to her pregnancy.

The 25-year-old singer confirmed she was pregnant with rapper Offset during a live performance of "Be Careful" on Saturday Night Live in April.

On Twitter Cardi B thanked her fans for helping her achieve the coveted number one spot again, saying they worked "they ass off" to get her there. 

"I got the best fans in the world hands down!!!" she said.
