Her monster track 'Bodak Yellow' is posing a threat...

Fans of Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift are joining forces in the hopes of keeping Cardi B's 'Bodak Yellow' away from the number one spot.

The rising rap starlet is currently sitting pretty at number two following a steady summer climb, meaning that the track could potentially top the chart in coming weeks. 

However, after the release of her new single 'Look What you Made Me Do', Taylor Swift's loyal fans are determined to see their idol nab the number one spot instead.

In addition, Billboard report that 'Bodak Yellow' has also become the highest-charting song by a solo female rapper since Nicki Minaj's 2014 hit 'Anaconda' - which doesn't sit well with Minaj's fans.

Despite the Cardi claiming that the rumoured beef between her and Minaj has never gone down, fans of the 'No Frauds' star feel threatened by the media's perception of Cardi as "the next Nicki Minaj".

In an attempt to dethrone Cardi, Swfities are Barbz are repeatedly streaming 'Look What You Made Me Do' in a bid to keep the song at #1.

The fandoms are encouraging each other online using the hashtag #LWYMMDStreamingParty, sharing screenshots and gifs of the ongoing campaign.

However, it looks like Cardi B's fans aren't going down without a fight.

The fandom have also taken to Twitter to encourage each other to purchase and stream 'Bodak Yellow' in an effort to catapult it to number one.

Nicki, Taylor and Cardi are yet to respond to the efforts.
