With its fourth week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, Cardi B rewrites her longest career domination as a lead artist, as “WAP” surpasses the three-week reign of her debut No. 1 “Bodak Yellow (Money Moves)” in October 2017. She has also led with “I Like It,” with Bad Bunny and J Balvin (one week, July 2018), and as featured on Maroon 5‘s “Girls Like You” (seven weeks, September-November 2018).

“WAP,” released on Atlantic Records, notches a fifth week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart with 41.5 million U.S. streams (down 14%) in the week ending September 17, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.

On Digital Song Sales, which it led for two weeks, “WAP” drops 2-3 with 12,000 downloads sold (down 25%) in the same span. The collab climbs 27-21 on Radio Songs with 32.6 million airplay audience impressions (up 21%) in the week ending September 20.

“WAP” logs a sixth week at No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts, which use the same multi-metric methodology as the Hot 100.
