She’s done it!
After watching her Nicki Minaj-assisted hit ‘Hot Girl Summer’ peak one rung shy of top 10 glory in 2019, rapstress Megan Thee Stallion has finally secured that ever elusive top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 with her anthemic bop, ‘Savage.’
“Megan Thee Stallion achieves her first Hot 100 top 10, as “Savage” surges 14-4 following the midday, April 29 release of its remix with Beyoncé (a day before the streaming and sales chart tracking week ended). It roars 8-2 on Digital Song Sales (26,000, up 160%), 8-3 on Streaming Songs (26.9 million, up 48%) and 36-18 on Radio Songs (40.5 million, up 52%), sweeping the Hot 100’s top Sales, Streaming and Airplay Gainer awards.
(Beyoncé is not credited on the Hot 100 as a featured artist on “Savage” as the total chart points for its remix did not outweigh those of the original in the tracking week; artist credit will be reevaluated next week following a first full tracking week for the remix.)”
