“WAP” is just the third female-led hip-hop song to rule the singles chart Down Under, and the first in almost three decades, ARIA reports. The only others are Dimples D’s “Sucker DJ” (March 1991) and Salt-N-Pepa’s “Let’s Talk About Sex” (January 1992).

With Cardi B’s Billboard Hot 100 leader now on top in Australia, Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo’s “Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)” slips to No. 2.

Cardi B’s previous chart high was “I Like It,” featuring Bad Bunny and J Balvin. The track peaked at No. 14.
