Chart Check [Hot 100]: Doja Cat Earns First Top 5 Hit of Her Career With ‘Say So’

Published: Tuesday 21st Apr 2020 by Rashad

Say what?

Doja Cat‘s breakout hit, ‘Say So,’ slides into new chart terrain thanks to a handsome mix of digital downloads, radio airplay, and streaming.


“Doja Cat pounces to her first top five Hot 100 hit, as “Say So” bounds 8-5. It likewise lifts 8-5 on Radio Songs (78.6 million, up 14%) and rises 10-8 on Streaming Songs (15.2 million, up 4%) and 25-21 Digital Song Sales (6,000, up 1%).”

Now, weeks after becoming her first solo Platinum record (as we reported here) and first top 40 hit (as we reported here), the Dr. Luke-produced cut is cutting into the Hot 100’s top 5.  Again, a first for her short but storied career.

As we celebrate the latest achievement alongside her growing legion of fans, look below to see who joins her in the top 25 on this week’s TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100 edition:

Doja’s success is also a win for her label, RCA Records.

The imprint, despite being the musical home of megastars Shakira, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and more, has failed to see any of its solo female acts head a Hot 100 top 5 hit in years.


“With “Say So” released on RCA Records, Doja Cat is the first woman on the label to earn a first career top five Hot 100 hit in a lead role since Sia, whose “Cheap Thrills” (featuring Sean Paul) led for four weeks in August 2016. Prior to Sia, Kesha reigned for nine weeks with her debut hit “TiK ToK” in January-February 2010.”

    Doja is about to get her first number 1 before Nicki Minaj and will be the 4th female rapper with a solo number 1 besides Lauryn Hill, Cardi B and Lizzo! Haters and snakes never win when they play dirty.

    • Ajm265 April 21, 2020

      But she already won sis lol when u on the tip of people’s tongues and still holding many records and out done everyone in your weight class that’s winning lol. All the girls you mention aspire to be as big as Nicki Minaj.

      • Section8DaGreat April 21, 2020

        Girl Nicki and even as big is she is LOL (meaning in you Garbz head)

      • Hated4myopinion April 21, 2020

        im sure Nicki will cry all the way to the bank as she counts her hundred million dollars

      • FAF April 21, 2020

        Considering you mentioned her F**** she ain’t even been online in 3 mos


    • Only Facts April 21, 2020

      A number 1 with a song that sounds exactly like Katy Perry circa 2010-2013. So you mean Dr Luke is about to get his first #1 in about 6-7 years

    • Fancy BISH April 21, 2020

      You forgot about Iggy ??

    • Fancy BISH April 21, 2020

      Never mind lol…You said solo #1 ?

    • Clarksooon April 21, 2020

      Doja is on the same record label with normani but doja cat’s career is taking of organically while miss normani’s career has stalled, why?

      No industry support or multiple magazine covers , no interviews, no appearances etc for doja cat and she already has a top 5 hit.

      Doja has been given basically nothing but she is still succeeding while normani has been given numerous opportunities on a platter of gold but she’s still flopping.

      A star is a star. U cant force this shìt
      Ur talent will always speak for its self.

      • Only Facts April 21, 2020

        Doja is also on her sophomore album. Let’s not forget her debut album debuted at 138 on billboard and this one debuted at 93 on billboard. Also, say so is Doja Cats 17th single. It took her 17 singles to get a hit and it sounds like a Katy Perry song circa 2012. Yeah, she’s winning long term ??

      • Clarksooon April 21, 2020

        Why u talking to me rat?
        Do.i know u?

      • Only Facts April 21, 2020

      • Clarksooon April 21, 2020

        Somebody is obsessed with me
        I knew this is what u were gonna say, but when I give u facts u run away with ur tail inbetween ur legs

        A clown

  2. Urg April 21, 2020

    Here come Only Fiction screaming Doja is homophobic like the oressed hoē it is.

    • Clarksooon April 21, 2020

      His faves normani hasnt seen the inside of the billboard hot 100 since November 2019

      That’s 5 months of being absent from the charts. Lol

      And they said she was gonna dominate 2020. I have to laugh

      • Bogus April 21, 2020

        You’re dangerously obsessed with Normani and Camila you’ll be the next person sent to prison for eventually stalking them

      • Clarksooon April 21, 2020

        Typical normani stan

        It’s not about me

        Its about normani vs. Camila

        And Camila is winning her and ur mad about it. But u will deal.
        Stupid rat

        U stan nicki the pèdo lover u should not be speaking.

        U will be sent to prison for touching a kid
        I cant wait to see u on the 9 o’clock news.

      • Bogus April 21, 2020

        I’m not mad about s*** you’re the f****** eat all you can do is stalk about Normani who claim to be a flop but you just can’t get her out of your tiny brain lmao poor you all you can think about is her flopping and how Camilas romance era has ended. Keep talking about Normani though that’s all you’re good for.

  3. Only Facts April 21, 2020

    Doja Cat homophobic. Also, the production on the song sounds like Katy Perry circa 2010-2013…this song isn’t original. Good luck with being a one hit wonder.

    • Urg April 21, 2020

      Just like clockwork the pressed hoê is here.

      • Only Facts April 21, 2020

        Just like clockwork, your dad still didn’t show up to visit you did he? Aww. Is he still at the store getting milk?

  4. Susan April 21, 2020

    Congrats Queen Doja! Some people can’t even get in the top 10 …even when they have the hottest rapper featured on the song ?

    • Clarksooon April 21, 2020

      I know right.

      Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100: #16(new) Diamonds, @theestallion & @Normani.


      • Clarks0o0ñ April 23, 2020

        Miserable stoopid , u will die from normanee hate

  5. Clarksooon April 21, 2020

    Dont forget megan thee stallion
    She’s about to get her first top 10 with savage

    This song may hit number one if her team plays their cards right.

    Its rising rapidly with no music video and little radio play.

    The savage dance challenge on tiktok is already dying out tho. She needs to hurry up with a music video and probably a remix.

    Ever since Remy destroyed nicki with that diss track, the gates were flung wide open and so many rap girls started succeeding.
    Nicki minaj monopolized the female rap game but not anymore.

    • DC April 22, 2020

      Umm you do see that me meg the pony falling down stalking at number 14 can’t get a top ten and u say number 1 ??

  6. Clarksooon April 21, 2020

    Gwen Stefani sitting pretty at number 18

    Who would have thought in 2020 punk rock queen gwen Stefani will have a country hit in the top 20.

    I’m happy for her.

  7. Clarksooon April 21, 2020

    The country girls are coming

    Maren Morrison number 13.

    Gabby barrett number 17 (she just released a remix with Charlie puth, so expect this song to rise next week) . She has no album out, this is her debut single . Normani what’s good?

    No hype, no industry support, no shout out from celebrities on Instagram and Twitter
    No rolling stone magazine cover
    No dissing any celebrity in interviews
    No looking for sympathy and pity

    Talent will always win.

    • Bogus April 21, 2020

      Camila the person you’re dangerously obsessed with is at number 12 lmao you said it was gonna be number 1 but it’s not. Romance album never went number one. It’s nowhere on the album charts. Yikes. Don’t talk about Normani. The other successful woman you’re obsessed with.

      • Clarksooon April 21, 2020

        U see why u are dumb
        A song is rising up the chart and ur making mocking it.

        U normani stans are daft

        Time to shut u up with the million dollar question

        Where is normani on the billboard hot 100, itunes 100, spotify 100?

        I’m waiting for answers

        Watch they will keep quiet, just like when normani points her mic to the crowd to sing along.

      • Bogus April 21, 2020

        She’s not on the charts at all!! Nobody has denied that. Why did romance not reach number one when you said it would? Why are none of Camilas songs number one from romance? If Normani isn’t on the charts why are you talking about her everyday and watching her Instagram lives and watching her Tik toks? We need answers crazy b****! Why why why? Would a flop be in your mind all day everyday ? Answer us PIG

  8. POPS Muva April 21, 2020

    mEGAN the flop could never after all these publicity stunts no top 10

    • Bogus April 21, 2020

      ActUlky did cause you mentioned her and she’s on your mind you could never have your dream job like she does

  9. Keith W April 21, 2020

    She deserves it the song is great! Thank Dr Luke for the hit!

    • Clarks0o0ñ April 23, 2020
