Cardi B is in a full-on celebration mode after her smash collab with Megan Thee Stallion, “WAP” debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart this week. The single also set a new streaming record the first week it dropped.
Released Aug. 7, “WAP” pulled in more than 93 million streams in the U.S. alone within the first six days, according to data obtained from Nielsen Music/MRC Data by Billboard, the most for any track ever in its first week of release. The song, which was produced by Ayo & Keyz, marks the Grammy-winner rapper’s fourth chart-topping track and Megan, who just notched her first Hot 100 No. 1 with her Beyoncé-assisted “Savage Remix” in May, has now logged her second milestone.
