Hot 100: Megan Thee Stallion & Beyoncé Make History As ‘Savage’ Remix Rockets to #1

Published: Tuesday 26th May 2020 by Rashad

Two weeks after fans thought Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion lost the race to the Hot 100’s finish line after their ‘Savage’ duet was bested by Doja Cat & Nicki Minaj‘s ‘Say So’ (click here to read more), the Houston hotties have skyrocketed to the chart’s summit.

Details inside:

For the fourth consecutive week, it’s taken the power of two to power to the top of the Hot 100.  After Travis Scott & Kid Cudi ruled with their joint hit, ‘The Scotts,’ Cat and Minaj followed with ‘Say So,’ then Ariana Grande and Justin Bieber behind them with ‘Stuck With U.’  Now, Stallion and Bey – after dropping to #5 on last week’s chart (as we reported here) – have bounded to its pole position.

Here’s a breakdown of the numbers:

  • Streaming: 30.5 million U.S. streams
  • Radio audience impressions: 53.7 million
  • Digital downloads: 30,000

The data combo proved potent enough to dust nearest competitor, The Weeknd‘s ‘Blinding Lights’ (which lands at #3 on this week’s Hot 100 after previously enjoying a non-consecutive four-week run atop the chart).

Finally, while the reign comes as Bey’s seventh and Meg’s first respectively, it pencils them both in history books.  For Beyoncé, she becomes the first songwriter ever to reign atop the Hot 100 in 4 different decades with new songs (1999’s ‘Bills, Bills, Bills,’ 2003’s ‘Crazy In Love,’ 2017’s ‘Perfect,’ and 2020’s ‘Savage’).  As a performer, she’s the first to nab a new #1 single every decade this millennium.  These feats are not to be mistaken with Mariah Carey‘s historic achievement as her latter #1, ‘All I Want for Christmas,’ was the re-peak of a 1994 hit (as we reported here).  Like Carey, Beyoncé is a listed songwriter on each of her #1 hits.

As it relates to Meg, she becomes the first female rapper in history to lead her first #1 single from a project that precedes her debut album.  ‘Suga,’ the EP where ‘Savage’ is housed, is the forerunner to her yet-titled official studio effort.  Shawnna previously held the record for first female rapper to own a #1 hit ahead of her debut album, but she was featured on the chart-topper – Ludacris’ 2003 smash ‘Stand Up.’

Fun fact:  2020 is the first year two different female rappers have owned a #1 hit on the Hot 100.  Also, it’s the first year two all-female collaborations have owned a #1 hit.

    Congratulations Meg!!!

    • Urg May 26, 2020

      Damn u are such a hyprocrite. Weren’t u the same one who said Meg would be left behind in 2019. Now I see u only like who is poppong at the current moment. Pathetic.

      • Only Facts May 26, 2020

        You’ve got me confused, doll face. I like meg, I don’t like Nicki or Doja. ❤️ The only things I’ve said about meg that you may not like is that I think she handled the legal drama wrong with the label. She should’ve let it play out in court rather than going on IG live.

      • Bogus May 26, 2020

        Yep this troll sure did “predict” Meg wouldn’t it hit number one

      • Bogus May 26, 2020

        This was showing Clarkson for some reason when i responded yikes

      • Only Facts May 26, 2020

        Bogus, you’re living up to your name. Not getting a reply from me doll ❤️

      • Urg May 26, 2020

        Guess all that dragging u get from Clarkso0n have left u with short term memory hun. U said clearly we leaving Meg and Nicki behind in 2019. But as I send you only like who is popping at the current moment.

      • Bogus May 26, 2020

        Lmao o got one from you I said I thought I was responding to Clarkson…I still want to meet and discuss your behavior on this site if you really live in LA

      • NawNaw May 26, 2020

        Y’all are dumbAF. People can have a change of heart towards people. TF? They said congrats. Leave it at that. Y’all just wanna argue for argue.

      • Bogus May 26, 2020

        And Naw Naw you’re dumb af like your username for adding your comment

    • Mary J Blige May 26, 2020

      LOL. No one really know bout this trash song. It will come as inferior and will not be legendary compared to Mary J non number one hits. Yonce tried it😂

  2. NawNaw May 26, 2020

    This is dope! Congrats to these beautiful and humble queens. Doja and Nicki, take note.

    • FAF May 26, 2020

      U brought them up …IF i were the standard, i wouldn’t be humble either 👑

      • NawNaw May 26, 2020

        Lil Kim is the standard, the blueprint, the original, and the icon.

        Nice try though, h_oe

      • Queen Barb May 26, 2020

        Lil Kevin is the standard of what not to do with your career or face, you left that part out.

      • Queen Barb May 26, 2020

        *Lil Kim sung*

      • NawNaw May 26, 2020

        Honey, have you seen Nicki’s face? It’s so puffy she looks like a couch cushion. Stop. She’ll look like Kim in a few years. She seems to follow everything mom does lol.

      • E. May 26, 2020

        @NawNaw, how do you know what Nicki look like now? The only recent pics or videos of her is on her social media. Why you watching her pages?

      • NawNaw May 26, 2020

        Nickis face has looked like a stuffed couch cushion since the queen era. She’s filled it to the max with fillers.

      • E. May 26, 2020

        @NawNaw her face is not puffy like it was @ Met Gala. She was bigger then that’s why her face was puffy. It wasn’t from no fillers. She’s lost weight and her face is not puffy anymore, try again.

    • Kenny May 26, 2020

      They already hit number 1 though

  3. Susan May 26, 2020

    And this happens the week Doja gets canceled? And this happened without her saying she’ll show her chesticles like Doja did? Talent always wins! Congratulations!

    • FAF May 26, 2020

      Stay out of black folk business Karen

      Doja canceled didn’t happen until the last 3 days

      Be happy for meg

    • Susan May 26, 2020

      I am black. You know what they say when you assume, right? Dumbass

      • Erica May 26, 2020

        But Doja is talented too despite the s h I t she got herself into. She’s more talented than meg & more diverse than her, but it doesn’t matter cause she’s cancel now 🤦🏽‍♂️

  4. del May 26, 2020

    Good for them

  5. Ratexxx May 26, 2020

    How on earth Beyondfake is listed as songwriter on all her music,
    When the bish can’t barely read…

    That stupid song is so stupid…both bragging about their p**** game..

    Umm if your p**** game on point, how come Joe camel stay cheating with your fake b***

    • Susan May 26, 2020

      Someone is big mad that Doja is canceled and meg is reigning superior.

    • beyalldey May 26, 2020

      Girl please shut the f*** up 😂😂😂

      • hive44 May 26, 2020

        Yeahhhhh you BIG mad 😂😂😂

  6. Susan May 26, 2020

    TGJ YOU TRIED IT! Four different decades?! Remove Bills Bills Bills. That was DESTINYS CHILD not Beyoncé! False reporting

    • lolololol May 26, 2020

      But why you mad!? 😂😂😂

    • King Z May 26, 2020

      it clearly says she has those hits AS A SONGWRITER but only has 3 as a performer.

      if only haters would read before they attack

      • Susan May 26, 2020

        Shouldn’t you be more concerned about Nicki and Doja getting their stomachs pumped because they swallowed so much c-u-m trying to get say so to #1.

      • Bogus May 26, 2020

        What a lame ass come back. As if you know their lives. Sit yo dumbass down

  7. Barb-wire/Stallion+Hottie May 26, 2020

    Congrats to these two Queens!!! This was an organic hit and it was bound to top the charts if it wasn’t for the Say So remix. Now Meg better release that Cash Sh!t video she promised us. #No1Queen

    • I+love+big+black+c** May 26, 2020

      If It wasn’t Queen B, this bland rap song won’t goes to #1. Thanks to B added more spice to it! So tell Megan da t***** get in her knee and lick B’s pretty feet

    • I Can’t May 26, 2020

      Exactly. An organic hit. To those of you who were bitching and moaning about promo, and you know who you are, this is what happens when you let your music sell itself. Worry about the MUSIC, and the success will follow. 🙄

      • Bogus May 26, 2020

        Another idiotic comment. Still deserved to be promoted like Meg did. I love Bey but she should’ve pushed the song

      • I Can’t May 26, 2020

        @Bogus The point, you missed it. What the song “deserved” was 2 artists who always wanted to make a song together and fans who wanted to hear it. And that’s what it got. Artists don’t need to do promote out of a strict obligation to ensure chart success. Beyoncé didn’t “push” the song because she didn’t need/want to. And what for? So it could do what it was going to do anyways? And even if it it didn’t go number 1, she wouldn’t have cared. Why? Because that’s not why she did it. And as someone from the same city, who grew up listening to Beyoncé’s music, and was inspired by Beyoncé’s music, and always wanted to make music with Beyoncé, it’s safe to suppose that Megan wouldn’t have cared either. And even if the fans, like yourself, don’t understand that, I’m pretty sure her peers do. Beyoncé is a dream collaboration for a lot of artists. None of them cite their reasoning for wanting to work with her as, “Because I love the way she promotes”. They just want to make music with Beyoncé, sis. That’s what the people deserve.

        And also, if that’s what you were after, you cannot expect, Beyoncé, a veteran, who never promotes her music, to change for you because YOU want/need a number 1. Makes no sense. 🙄 And furthermore, perhaps the success of your song shouldn’t be solely dependent on Beyoncé’s name…. Especially if you’re still a new artist who hasn’t proven yourself. Just thoughts…

    • Doja Canceled May 26, 2020

      Megan would be nothing without Doja. Remember “I’ve been the stallion, you been the seahorse”

  8. I+love+big+black+c** May 26, 2020

    Thanks to Queen B. Megan da t***** Got lucky this time. Cardi B scored her first solo #1 hit without any features

    • Barb-wire/Stallion+Hottie May 26, 2020

      I think you’re forgetting the “For The Culture” campaign she had or are you suddenly struck with a sudden case of amnesia??? I’m pretty sure even Saweetie flop ass can score a solo No.1 if she had a campaign from all the blogs. #NextCaller

      • I+love+big+black+c** May 26, 2020

        Whatever. Queen B gave her that #1. First of all, working with Nicki and then normani coz she can’t go solo. We all know Megan da t***** is just a one hit wonder. Truth hurts!

      • Barb-wire/Stallion+Hottie May 26, 2020

        Is that why she has numerous BB100 hits before her debut album??? Mad sis? I know her success must have you mad pressed, now go stream Press and cry.

    • biancacook May 26, 2020

      and bodak came out before her debut so idk how they saying meg got a #1 before he debut album and the first female rapper to do it. maybe in this new decade but bodak was an original no feature and no debut album

      • Tori May 26, 2020

        “Bodak Yellow” was the first single from Cardi’s debut album. “Savage” and “Savage (Remix)” are credited towards “Suga”, Megan’s EP. They won’t be listed b on the album, therefore, Megan is the first female rapper to score a #1 BEFORE her debut album.

      • biancacook May 26, 2020

        dont matter tho keyword BEFORE. she didn’t have a debut album out and didn’t for what another 6 months to a year she could of easily left it as a buzz single. and when she did drop the album she got a second #1. meg may not have a debut album but she does have an EP and its the second one following fever. cardi didn’t even have that. bodak did what it did with no feature and no album. congrats to meg but cardi did that.

      • Bogus May 26, 2020

        What are you talking about Cardi had 2 full mixtapes/LPs out on streaming services which are still a available for streaming, Gangsta B**** Music volume 1 then she released volume 2 smh you think you know so much. This was before Bodak Yellow

  9. Barb-wire/Stallion+Hottie May 26, 2020

    Now, where is DC (the stan of a flop w****) who swore up and down that Meg was a fad and that we were leaving her in 2019??? Where is that hoeee, I have numerous questions.

  10. Nicky May 26, 2020


    Queen Bey has another #1
    Meg snagged a #1

    Bey, Meg, Nicki, Rih will be passing the torch for Normani’s debut.

    Winners Table. Slow & Steady always wins the race. While other girls have sprinted and passed out/got canceled

    • Who dat Do that May 26, 2020

      Nor… who?

  11. Solid Split May 26, 2020

    Nicki and Beyonce the most hated by white people and insecure blacks. Watch Nicki win a Grammy when she releases. Watch Bey album have commercial success. Keep hating Trash!

    • Kessy May 26, 2020

      Yesss we love to see all these black queens win. 💕

    • Doja Canceled May 26, 2020

      Nick won’t win a Grammy. Doja will win before Nicholas does. Doja greatest rapper alive.

  12. Clarks0o0ñ May 26, 2020

    I’m so happy

    • Are You Kidding Me? May 26, 2020

      Clarkson congratulating Black women? We are in the end times.

      • Susan May 26, 2020

        He doesn’t know who is who and what is what. He congratulates someone one minute then tries to insult them. He’s mentally unwell and it’s sad. My research leads me to believe he has self-esteem and self-identity issues, hence him being a person of color, yet continually attacks people of color. He tends to attack someone that possesses something he dislikes about himself, hence him attacking black artists particularly. I also anticipate my findings proving abandonment issues, most likely daddy issues.

        Dr. Susan

      • tyty May 26, 2020

        That freak show will be back to dissing them soon enough, It despises black women because it wishes it could be one. That one right there would make a good study case for psychiatrists.

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 26, 2020

        See them, vultures perching under my comment.

        Just because I dont stan talentless normani, u have drawn to a conclusion that I hate black women?

        U see the problem?

        I dont support people based on skin colour, I support people based on talent.

        A number one song is a number one song, unlike u guys who love to discredit artists who have number 1’s with features, I dont.

        I celebrate success of talented people.

        Now cry.

      • Bogus May 26, 2020

        Yea Clarkson said that Meg wouldn’t score a Number one and that Bey should’ve promoted etc etc and that Meg was gonna get left behind. You can see all the trolls comments on the post when Nicki and Doja hit number 1. A flip

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 26, 2020


        U better get help real quick

        U are not gonna find the help u need on TGJ.

        U better see a trained medical professional to help u sort ur mental illness.

        U are basically projecting

        I will pray for u.

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 26, 2020


        This is borderline obsessive disorder.
        U need to see a psychiatrist real quick

        Being so obsessed with someone u dont know on the internet is a problem that should be addressed.

        I am sending u healing
        Love and light

      • Bogus May 26, 2020

        The same way you’re obsessed with Normani a person you don’t know who is a million times more successful in life than you are

  13. Queen Barb May 26, 2020

    Congratulations ladies, we love to see all these queens win!

  14. Paulo May 26, 2020

    I didn’t think they would make it! So glad I was wrong 🤣👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

    • Susan May 26, 2020

      What a backhanded compliment. F*** you

      • Paulo May 26, 2020


        I been Hive before you could learn how to type and embarrass yourself on the internet. I didn’t think the song would go #1 AND WHAT? I still stream the hell out of it and you can choke on a Ms Rona coated d***.

  15. Alex May 26, 2020

    Where the haters at now??? I thought Bey was washed up?? Thought she wasn’t getting another #1 hit?? Lmao!!! She told y’all on survivor “even in my years to come I’m STILL gone be here”!! She’s the FIRST artist to have a #1 hit in 4 different decades! Y’all lucky she really ain’t fully POP like she was in the 2000s, cuz y’all faves wouldn’t stand a chance!! Lmao!!

    • Queen Mimi May 26, 2020

      It’s my queen, Mariah Carey, who’s actually the FIRST artist to have #1 in 4 different decades, both as a performer ans songwriter.

      How bout you re-read the article and try to find the #1s they’ve enumerates for Bey and you’ll see that “Bills, Bills, Bills” was listed there, which is a Destiny’s Child song. That’s not credited for Bey alone

      • Bogus May 26, 2020

        And what does that Matter?? She was attached to the song and sang the lead on it…your point ?

  16. Dc May 26, 2020

    Who cares

    • Urg May 26, 2020

      U do. Must cut u like a knife to see Meg at the No 1 spot.

      • Dc May 26, 2020

        Not at all she will never see cardi success so I’m good Number 1 but probably made no money off it with that bum record deal can’t wait for cardi to return put these arrogant h*** in place

      No, Doja’s success opened up the doors. Doja is the greatest female rapper

      • Dc May 26, 2020

        Doja is a 1 hit wonder

  18. tyty May 26, 2020

    Awww congrats bey and meg should been number 1 weeks ago….. Bey was a massive impact on this hitting the top spot 20 years in the game and her influence is netting newbies number 1 hits. We love to see it.

  19. Dc May 26, 2020


    • Only Facts May 26, 2020

      Megan is on an independent label. You think an independent label has the budget for payola?? Hell, even roc nation doesn’t have the budget for payola (hence all of their artists flopping)

    • Barb-wire/Stallion+Hottie May 26, 2020

      😂😂😂😂 Meg is not an Atlantic artist, clown. We don’t do Cardi B payola over here, nor do we need “for the culture” campaigns for a number 1. I know you’re siccccc to see it.😩😩

      • NawNaw May 26, 2020

        Honey, say so is the face of payola. Don’t you stan Nicki? 🤣

      • Dc May 26, 2020

  31. Diabetes UNBOTHERED May 26, 2020

    Thanks to Bey… Nikki has not one but 2 Opponents (CARDI B & MEAGON) in the rap game to challenge her MEDIOCRITY Long Term cuz SAVAGE wasn’t going #1 without the Queen but Say So could have eventually without Nikki

    Cardi B and Meaghan both have REAL #1 Nikki still has none as a lead act. Sum Queen…

    BEY now has 11 #1 Hits… Just a FEW more and she will Surpass MJ RIHANNA AND MARIAH in that order cuz bey will be the first ever to reach 20 #1 Hits. I still think Daddy Lessons could have Went #1 if it was pushed after Formation instead of Sorry

    • Fenty Beauty May 27, 2020

      LMFAO!!!! Auntie Yonce finally had her 7th #1 after riding Meg popularity. 😂😂😂😂😂 Girl 8 more to catch up Riri. Im sorry to say bit Riri wig is intact. Don’t be counting the other 4 with DC, that is not her solo.

      Riri 15 #1 >> Aunt Bey 7 #1s 😂😂😂😂😂

    • Terny May 27, 2020

      Talk about Delusional Mariah has 19 Billboard Hot 100 #1s and you think Oldyonce’ is gonna be the one to tie the Beatles for that record? Hahaha… You’ve been off ur diabetes meds I can see.

    Whites Kill and Steal from everyone, but still find a way into Heaven. Riddle me that?

  37. Dod Alton May 28, 2020

    Why is bills bills bills considered as a “Beyoncé” hit?
    I owned the album, and I’m sure it said “destiny’s child” on the cover! 🤔
    Funny how people just can’t let Mariah Carey appreciate her records and never seem to admit her accomplishments, why does she provoque so much shade? Is she too white or something?

  38. Strawberry May 28, 2020

    Beyonce is a living LEGEND. Second ONLY to the late great Michael Jackson, she is the greatest female performer of All-Time. All hail the Queen of POP. 4th decade & still going strong ..the Legend continues. Bow down B*TCHES!!!*
    #WATCH the GotDamm Throne*

    • Strawberry May 28, 2020

      ..and one mo thang, .. It’s not that she’s too White. It’s just that Mariah Carey hasn’t had a legitimate #1 Hit since 2008. & was ridiculously given credit for two whole dried-up HIT-Less Decades by stringing a Decades-Old TIRED Christmas song cross the back end of 2019 & the first measly week of 2020 (..NOT EVEN A DIFFERENT dam song!).. & technically that final week didn’t even occur in THIS decade (2020).. it’s just that Billboard releases their new surveys the week AFter on a date that just happened to graze the front end of 2020. On the other hand every member of Destiny’s Child who sang on “Bills,Bills,Bills” is credited as Artists, including their Lead singer BEYONCE. and you can find her Actual name in the Artist credits across ten MORE #1’s for the next Three Decades with ten DIFFERENT jams. (..& not ONE Christmas song in the Bunch)*

  39. Strawberry May 28, 2020

    Honey everybody Knows Destiny’s child IS Beyonce. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

It’s just that Mariah Carey hasn’t had a legitimate #1 Hit since 2008. & was ridiculously given credit for two whole dried-up HIT-Less Decades by stringing a Decades-Old Christmas song cross the back end of 2019 & the first measly week of 2020 (..NOT EVEN A DIFFERENT dam song!).. & technically that final week didn’t even occur in THIS decade (2020).. it’s just that Billboard releases their new surveys the week AFter on a date that just happened to graze the front end of 2020. On the other hand every member of Destiny’s Child who sang on “Bills,Bills,Bills” is credited as Artists, including their Lead singer BEYONCE. and you can find her Actual name in the Artist credits across ten MORE #1’s for the next Three Decades with ten DIFFERENT jams. (..& not ONE Christmas song in the Bunch)*

    Yeah she was the FIRST alright. The first to have THAT many Hits while being able to sing not a Dam ONE of ’em Live without Lowering the key, Lip-syncing, or fighting the air violently with strained expression, trying desperately to reach the fake STUDIO notes the Few times she dared give it a try. The LIE.. is that Mariah Carey is the greatest voice in Pop Music. Alicia Keys, Pink, Kelly Clarkson, Toni Braxton, Celine, Christina, Adele, Ariana, Gaga, Whitney And BEYONCE could all sing circles around that B*tch in their SLeep.*** #FACTS!!!
