Grab a bucket and a mop… Cardi B‘s back at the top of the charts.
The 27-year-old half-Dominican American rap superstar’s smash single “WAP,” featuring Megan Thee Stallion, has rebounded for a third week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.
“WAP” has dethroned BTS‘ “Dynamite,” which spent its first two weeks on the Hot 100 at No. 1, at the top of the chart.
The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming, radio airplay and sales data.
“WAP,” released on Atlantic Records, notches a fourth week at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart with 48.2 million U.S. streams (down 18%) in the week ending September 10, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
On the Digital Song Sales chart, which it led for two weeks, “WAP” rises 3-2 with 16,000 downloads sold (down 20%) in the same span. The collab ascends 32-27 on the Radio Songs chart with 27.3 million radio airplay audience impressions (up 11%) in the week ending September 13.
With its third week at No. 1 on the Hot 100, Cardi B matches her longest career domination as a lead artist, as “WAP” ties 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 feature artist on Maroon 5‘s “Girls Like You” (seven weeks, September-November 2018).
“WAP” logs a fifth 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.
