Cardi B passed Taylor Swift on the charts—and Swift sent her flowers

No bad blood here.

Taylor Swift may have had a rivalry-filled summer, but she was nothing but an ally to Cardi B this week after the rapper usurped the pop star for the number one spot on the charts.

“Bodak Yellow” dethroned “Look What You Made Me Do” after its three-week reign in the top spot, and it’s a historic win for Cardi. She’s the first solo female rapper to top the Hot 100 since Lauryn Hill in 1998—that’s 19 years since a lady MC last held the position.

And there’s no rivalry, apparently. Swift sent Cardi a huge pink bouquet backstage at the Tonight Show—where the rapper was appearing with G-Eazy—as a congratulations.

“Sooo beautiful and lovely,” the Bronx native wrote on Instagram. “Thank you @taylorswift for the flowers… and I freaking love your music.”

What a refreshingly straightforward moment!
