Hip-Hop’s New Princess of Rap Cardi B has recently signed a Worldwide Publishing Contract with Sony/ATV Music. She became the first unassisted female rapper to top the Billboard Hot 100 in nearly 19 years. Her record ‘Bodak Yellow spent 3 weeks on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Cardi B said: “Oooo, I’m so happy to be with my new family Sony/ATV. ‘Bodak Yellow’ is only the beginning and we’re just getting started.”
The Bronx native behind “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” is “one of a rare breed of unique artists who the industry only witnesses occasionally,” said Sony/ATV co-president Rick Krim in the announcement.
“Cardi B is honest, real and refreshing and has the confidence to say exactly what she is thinking and feeling,” said Sony/ATV senior director of A&R Jennifer Drake. “It’s tangible and you can connect to that. We are so proud to be able to work with a talented artist like Cardi and excited to see her push the culture forward.”
‘Bodak Yellow has over 242 million views on YouTube. The song has sold nearly 500,000 digital downloads in the U.S. and has been streamed more than 440 million times, according to Nielsen Music.
