While Bronx rapper Cardi B owned a latter of 2018, Detroit artist Lizzo has this year in the bag. Despite being released in 2017, Lizzo’s “Truth Hurts” is breaking numbers on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song didn’t really see much popularity until her third studio album Cuz I Love You in addition to going viral on the TikTok app. Fast forward to now, it’s competing with Cardi’s “Bodak Yellow.”
“Bodak Yellow” released in 2017 as well, but caught a flame much earlier due to it being a remix of Kodak Black’s 2014 song “No Flockin.” It serves as the Bronx first song to reach the Billboard charts, but definitely not her last. The song also ended up on Cardi’s debut album Invasion of Privacy, which won her a Grammy Award later on. When the project initially dropped, ten of the thirteen songs charted as well. Which song are you rooting for, if any?
