Congratulations to Maroon 5 and Cardi B!
Although Cardi B disabled her Instagram account and is taking heat on Twitter for possibly lip-syncing at the Grammys, the rapper is still killing it on the Billboard charts. According to the chart tracking publication, Cardi B and Maroon 5's collaboration "Girls Like Me" has officially been sitting in the Hot 100, in the Top 10 section, for 33 weeks.
That means Maroon 5 and Cardi have tied with Ed Sheeran, with the trio of acts hitting the record. Maroon 5's lead singer, Adam Levine, previously explained just why he thought it was so important to have Cardi featured on the song.
"She was in the honeymoon period of her moment,” he said. “She was just beginning to be that female artist that everybody was talking about, and I thought it was an important thing for her to be involved. I knew she would have an interesting take on what was being said, and she would do it in a way that you wouldn’t necessarily have thought of.”
As for a few words of inspiration to Cardi, before she wrote the verse, he told her to "put something down that shows your fierceness as a woman and say it however you want."
