You know who she is, right?

She’s Cardi B.

Let’s make it then !!!!

A post shared by Cardi B Official IG (@iamcardib) on

And last week the singer made history after her song “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” knocked Taylor Swift’s “Look What You Made Me Do” from the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart.

Not too shabby: The Bronx native, whose real name is Belcalis Almanzar, is the  first female rapper to reach that milestone as a solo artist since since Lauryn Hill in 1998.
Cardi also released a Spanish-language version of her single soon after.
Did we mention it was her debut single?

So yeah. The Dominican-Trinidadian hip hopper is hot stuff.

How hot?

Hot enough to warrant a New York Times article, a spot in Paper magazine and an feature in The New Yorker.

“The phenomenon of Cardi B is just that: an anomaly in the culture rather than a confirmation of it. She threatens the rules,”  says the story by Doreen St. Félix. “Gloating young male rappers like Black and xxxTentacion are currently scaling the heights of Internet-based popularity while being openly abusive to women; Cardi B is open about the abusive relationships she has endured, and what she has had to do to get out of them.”

Miley Cyrus even covered her hit on “The Tonight Show.”

Unclear if Cyrus knows what the title means, but it’s a riff on the name of Florida rapper Kodak Black, whose song “No Flockin” is said to have inspired Cardi B’s hypnotic rhymes.

Now the 24 year old wunderkind,who inked a lucrative deal with Atlantic Records back in February, is coming to Miami Beach.

The outspoken “Cheap Ass Weave” singer will be attending the BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 at The Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater.

The music industry newbie will join fellow nominees along with Miami’s DJ Khaled, who hosts.

Taping is on Oct. 6 at The Fillmore Miami Beach and premieres at 8 p.m. Oct. 10.
