The Times Have Changed: What 'I Like It' Hitting No. 1 Means to Latin Music

July 4, 2018

 Much has been made of the fact that Cardi B is the first female rapper with two Billboard Hot 100 No. 1s.     

But the far bigger story is the fact that that second No. 1 -- “I Like It” -- is a fully bilingual song where Cardi B raps in English and her two fellow artists, Bad Bunny and J Balvin, rap in Spanish. Out of a 13-track album featuring a bounty of collaborations, the one that got to the top is the only one that is bilingual.    

“I Like It” reaching the summit comes almost exactly a year after that other bilingual track, “Despacito,” hit No. 1 on the Hot 100 (May 27, 2017), and stayed there for a record-tying 16 weeks.
