Cardi B continues to make history with the explosive success of her new single, “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. The blockbuster track, RIAA certified gold in its first week, has quickly broken multiple records including the highest streaming first week by a female artist, the highest streaming first week of 2020, and one of the top 3 hip-hop streaming debuts of all time.
The record-breaking single extends Cardi B’s own record as the female rapper with the most Hot 100 #1s, now four songs with the inclusion of “WAP (Feat. Megan Thee Stallion).” The track also makes Cardi the first female rapper to have a #1 on the Hot 100 in two different decades, and the 3rd female rapper to debut at #1 on the Hot 100 as a lead artist.
Congrats to Cardi!
