Cardi B’s Viral Hit, ‘Coronavirus,’ Makes Its Billboard Chart Debut

Published: Saturday 28th Mar 2020 by Rashad

Sh*t is getting real for a Cardi B parody-turned-viral hit thanks to the ‘I Like It’ diva’s endorsement.

As we reported here last week, after DJ iMarkkeyz fashioned quotes from a video of her ranting about her fears of the spread of coronavirus into a full-on song, the clip became so popular it made its way to her Twitter page.

Once she put her stamp of approval on it, the tune found its way to the top 10 of iTunes charts.  Fast forward to this week, ‘Coronavirus’ (the song) has found tenancy on multiple Billboard charts.

Details inside:

Via Billboard:

“…the remixed tune “Coronavirus” sold 3,000 copies in the week ending March 19, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. The sales total prompts a No. 9 debut on Billboard’s Rap Digital Song Sales and a No. 13 start on the R&B/Hip-Hop Digital Song Sales charts dated March 28.

In addition, “Coronavirus” picked up 626,000 U.S. on-demand streams in the same period.”


Though the stats ring impressive, they weren’t quite enough needed to crack the Hot 100. The song’s out-of-the-box success, however, does indicate just how excited the public is to get any semblance of new music from Cardi.
