This week the competition was quite tense for artists Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion. Both artists are procuring high-profile remixes of their hit songs, “Say So” and “Savage,” with the help of Nicki Minaj and Beyoncé. But now a prominent winner has emerged.
”Say So” came to No. 1 on the current week’s Hot 100, Billboard reports, figuring out how to push out “Savage” all the while.
There can be only one victor on the charts. However, every one of the four artists is champs in this faceoff, and they’ve impacted the world forever in a few different ways.
This is the first occasion when that a coordinated effort between two female rappers has topped the Hot 100 and the first occasion when that two female rappers in lead jobs have taken the chart’s best two slots. In the interim, Minaj breaks the record for the longest hang tight for a Hot 100 No. 1 hit, and Beyonce turns into the primary craftsman to score Top 10 hits in every one of the most recent four decades (the 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and 2020s).
These are on the whole groundbreaking accomplishments, and the achievement of “Say So” and “Savage” concretes Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion as pioneers of the new class of rappers and pop stars.
Maybe more significantly, however, it demonstrates that there’s space for more than one female rapper to blossom with the Billboard Hot 100 without a moment’s delay, and surely the sound rivalry among extraordinary artists do benefit to those everyone included.
It’s the first No. 1 for both Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj in their respective career and Nicki’s 109th Hot 100 entry.
The previous record was held by Justin Bieber, who had 46 chart entries before his first No. 1 with “What Do You Mean?” in 2015. The last was held by Kid Cudi, who saw 11 years spend between “Day ‘N’ Nite” appearing on the Hot 100 and “The Scotts” coming to No. 1. She recently bested out at No. 2 with “Boa constrictor” in 2014.
