Eventually signing with Atlantic Records, she dropped her debut single, Bodak Yellow earlier this summer on June 16, 2017. Her breakout hit, it ended up topping the US Billboard Hot 100 for three consecutive weeks, making her one of only a handful of female rappers to have ever achieved such a feat.
