Chart Check: Megan Thee Stallion Lands Career Hot 100 & Billboard 200 Peaks in Same Week

Published: Tuesday 12th May 2020 by Rashad

Megan Thee Stallion was one-fourth of one of the most heated races for the Billboard Hot 100’s summit last week as her Beyoncé-assisted hit, ‘Savage,’ challenged Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Say So’ remix for the title.

As revealed yesterday, Stallion and co. claimed the runner-up spot – bested by the ‘Say So’ duo (who benefited from single bundling as well as a surge in sales, streaming, and Pop radio airplay).

However, the second place landing is by no means a loss.

In addition making history for being part of the first time two female rappers occupied the top two spots, ‘Savage’ was also awarded Meg’s highest tenancy on the Hot 100 thanks to 42.1 million U.S. streams, 50,000 digital downloads, and 51.3 million impressions on radio.

As she celebrates that win, look inside to see who joins her in the top 25 on this week’s ‘TGJ Chart Check’:

As if that win wasn’t enough to celebrate, the tune’s parent project – ‘Suga’ – soared to #7 on the Billboard 200 this week.  As of time reported, this is highest rung she’s reached on that tally (besting the previous #10 peak of its predecessor, ‘Fever’).

Look below to see who joins her in the top 25 there as well.

    I would’ve preferred this hit number 1 instead of Rataj

      This is a marathon, not a sprint! 💯 Savage will continue to build chile…don’t rush it, cause look Tekasheesha 69 came out of nowhere with his mess 🤣 Let him do whatever he’s gonna do and let other songs enter…THEN Meg & Bey can plan their next move at the right time!

        lmaooo keep deluding yourself, it ain’t gonna happen, Floppage is already freefalling lmao 😂

      • Fancy BISH May 13, 2020

        You a mess and a whole half, but I do laugh at your comments 😂 What are you talking about? It’s #5 on ITunes, it hit #1 on Streaming Songs this week and it’s building at radio…girl be gone, this is looking like a real hit 💯 Summer starts June 20th BISH *Meg voice* 🤣

    It’s such a shame megan couldn’t get a number one.
    She underestimated doja big time
    She thought beyonce’s name was enough to carry the song to number one.

    Savage is already losing streams daily.

    Does she still have a shot? I doubt it
    The official music video with beyonce may help the song.

    That child m*****èr rat with colourful hair is coming next week.
    Arianna and bieber are also coming

    Lil uzi vert is coming again

      Make no mistake, if Savage was released with a Video it would have went straight to #1 based on just 1 or 2 days out jumping 14+1 without even needing to compete with Doja.

        If but it never will ha ha

      You start a lot of drama on this site amongst fan bases mincing words of artist. Who and WHERE did you read that Megan Thee Stallion underestimated Doja Cat? Savage was a solid bubbling hit just like Sayso was as well. And they both were solo singles. Savage stayed consistent with that #SavageChallenge that people from all ages were doing, which spiked organically. It’s like you don’t want people to like Megan. Kind of like what you’re doing with Normani…. In which who’s been on Quarantine for some months now… MIA! Yet she’s constantly being ranted and raved about in your comment sections daily! You quote CONSTANTLY about the “free promo” Normani got last year but you can’t stop talking about her? Worry about Camilla’s prejudice, culture appropriating ass. Her days are definitely numbered. I honestly think she’s a industry PLANT at this point.

        So u wrote this thesis with your whole chest and u think u are sensible.
        An idiot , that’s what u are

        Ur a waste ti society but u dont even know it.

        An immigrant girl from Cuba who was on a reality show is an industry plant. Smh
        U are more stupid than onlyflops

        megan did underestimate doja by not preparing merch bundles, dance video with beyonce in it, etc in time. Releasing the remix one Thursday instead of Friday

        Doja literally released 6 different versions of say say last week. Bundles, dance video, a live performance etc. Released the remix on friday, the beginning of a tracking week. She came prepared.

        U are daft and silly.
        Hold the L

      • High Price May 12, 2020

        Fool, there’s no “L”! If Doja did all of that A WEEK before then there was no preparation!!! She did it on a humble. Same thing Megan COULD have did. #Sayso was just a solid ass hit and had been generating buzz organically WAY BEFORE Megan even dropped her mixtape with the #Savage track on it. Stfu! My last time acknowledging your ignorance.

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 12, 2020

        U scum
        I have nothing against megan or doja
        I don’t even give a f**** about say so or savage.

        I said what I said

        I hope corona takes u from the world this year.
        We love to see it.

      • Bogus May 13, 2020

        Again That Grape Juice!! What the f*** aren’t you moderating comments?!! This is the THJRD TIME THIS SCUM S*** TROLL HAS WISHED DEATH ON SOMEONE VIA CORONA VIRUS AND YALL ARE LETTING IT SLIDE

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 13, 2020

        Die u rat
        I have driven u insane
        We love to see it

    • Rosy May 13, 2020

      I don’t even like Nicki Minaj but the song is good and catchy Beyonce and Meghan song sucks

  3. Covid-19 UNBOTHERED May 12, 2020

    I’d love to know how it wouldve played out if SAVAGE and SAY SO Remix were both released on the SAME DAY. I personally think Savage 2nd Week of tracking still should have gotten enough Airplay to Beat Dojas First week especially since bey has Multiple Hits with 200 Million Audience Impressions… ‘Check on it’ being one.

    • ??? May 13, 2020

      lmaoooo shoulda coulda woulda, keep the excuses coming fatso, roach takes yet another L because she thought her name was enough to get to #1 and got her wig snatched by a newbie instead….again lmfaooooo. now watch your dumb ass respond with an essay full of made up numbers for roach lmfaooooooooo

    • Rosy May 13, 2020

      That would not make a difference Doja appeals to the young kids Beyonce dried up voice killed Meghan’s song little girls love colors and freaking balloons doja appeals to everyone I’m grown and found myself listening to the song

  4. Pat May 12, 2020

  5. Nicky May 12, 2020
