"Bodak Yellow" (alternatively titled "Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)") is the major-label debut single by American rapper Cardi B. It was written by Cardi B, Jordan Thorpe, Klenord Raphael, and produced by J. White Did It and Laquan Green. It was released on June 16, 2017, by Atlantic Records as the lead single from her debut studio album Invasion of Privacy (2018).[4] The hip hop song was influenced by and interpolates the flow of American rapper Kodak Black's song "No Flockin".[5][6][7]

Selected by The Washington Post and Pitchfork music critics as the best song of 2017, it was cited by many publications as one of the songs that defined the 2010s decade. The single topped the US Billboard Hot 100 chart for three consecutive weeks, making Cardi B the second female rapper to reach number one with a solo song, following Lauryn Hill's "Doo Wop (That Thing)" in 1998.[8][9][10] Cardi B became the only female rapper to have a song certified Diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), when "Bodak Yellow" received the certification in 2021 for selling more than 10 million units in the country.[11][12] Filmed in Dubai, its accompanying music video made her the only female rapper to have two videos on her YouTube channel with more than 1 billion views, as it joined "I Like It", and became the fastest solo female rap song to reach that mark on the platform.[13][14]

"Bodak Yellow" received nominations for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song at the 60th Grammy Awards.[15] The song won Single of the Year at the 2017 BET Hip Hop Awards[16] and Favorite Rap/Hip Hop Song at the 2018 American Music Awards.[17]
