Last month, thanks to "Bodak Yellow," Cardi B became the first female rapper in nearly 20 years to go to No.1 without any other featured credited artist.

Now, she's made history again as the first woman to have her first three song entries land simultaneously within the Top 10 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart, according to Billboard.

"Bodak Yellow" holds at No.2 while her Nicki Minaj and Migos collaboration, "MotorSport," debuts at No.5, and her guest appearance on G-Eazy's "No Limit" rises to No.10.

The rapper took to Instagram to celebrate the achievement, writing:

"Soo dope !!! Billboards say it's History not me 🤷🏽‍♀️🤷🏽‍♀️ Lets get Motorsport & No Limit on the top HOT 100 along with BODAK YELLOW !!! And thank you everybody for showing love.Its all cause of you ...My single on the way !!!"

Meanwhile, Sam Smith is seeing major chart success with his sophomore effort, The Thrill Of It All.

The project nabbed the coveted No.1 spot on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart upon selling 185,000 copies. (His debut album, 2014's In the Lonely Hour, peaked at No.2.)

Smith celebrated on Instagram, as well, writing:

"Completely and utterly overwhelmed. The Thrill Of It All is officially number 1 In America. Truly a dream come true. Thank you all from the deepest part of my heart ❤️"
