Hot 100: Megan Thee Stallion Secures First Ever Top 10 Hit with ‘Savage’

Published: Monday 4th May 2020 by Rashad

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.’

Details inside:


“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.)”

Check back later this week for the full Hot 100 recap on this week’s ‘TGJ Chart Check.’

    We know why meg got that top 10. Congratulations and shoutout to bey for helping her out.

    • Yolanda May 4, 2020

      Too bad it didn’t help Nicki Minaj. Flawless Remix peaked at #41 and Feeling Myself peaked at #39. Give Megan her props. The original Savage was a big enough hit for Beyonce to even want to jump on it.

  2. Clarks0o0ñ May 4, 2020

    Number one next week and beyonce will be credited cause the remix version is selling more than the original

    I cant say the same for doja cat’s say so
    The nicki minaj remix isnt selling well and nicki will not be credited if the song hits number one.
    Sorry barbs.

    U guys always laugh at Camila cause she has 2 number 1’s with features, do u see how hard it is to get a number one with a feature.

    Camila makes it look easy that why u guys think it’s a piece of cake to get a number one with a feature.

    And it’s above say so 🤣🤣🤣 congrats meg!

    • Xtina4ever May 4, 2020

      Lol Um say so was in the top 10 way before savage and managed to gets further before the remix. So what are you talking about?

  4. Clarks0o0ñ May 4, 2020

    Remember this .
    I predicted it.

    April 23, 2020

    The song is predicted to rise next week.
    It has no music video
    Its rising on radio

    This song is gonna hit number one if her team does things right.
    A hot ground breaking music video
    A good remix

    A good remix is what he team delivered and now she’s about to get her first number one.
    I have to applaud megan thee stallion team. They know what their job

    The music video is going to be fire.
    2 bad bìtches
    Bey and megan

    How are they gonna film the music video with the whole C***** virus social distancing shìt going on?

      Meg takes the W?..Poor Doja,Nicki injected her toxic into her career just like she did Ella Mai rmx..Ella Still hasn’t recovered.Nicki is poison..Doja deserves better.Should of putt The Weeknd,Bruno Mars or Adam Levine on the rmx.

  5. Clarks0o0ñ May 4, 2020

    Remember this
    I predicted this shìt

    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.

    When it comes to music dont argue with me
    I know a hit when I hear it
    I know a star when I see one.

    • Kenny May 4, 2020

      Stfu. Doja already in the top 5.

      • Sam May 4, 2020

        The rmx a flop

  7. Fancy BISH May 4, 2020

    Congrats Meg! 🥳 Well deserved! #Meg&Bey

  8. Tyty May 4, 2020

    A video of the remix would break the internet and pretty much guarantee the remix tops the chart.

    • Fancy BISH May 4, 2020

      Yep, and they should wait a bit to drop it until after Drakesha finishes bombing the Hot 100 with his album and the coast is clear chile 😂 Get that real hot girl summer #1, but don’t rush it! Let the song build some more 💯 #1’s are tricky to get *Mimi voice*

    • Yolanda May 4, 2020

      I don’t understand the process. Can the original and the remix chart at the same time? If so, that’ll be cool. I’d rather the remix go to #1 instead of the original. Megan wouldn’t have pressure to release more #1’s if the remix went #1. The public would consider it a Beyonce song and ease the pressure off Megan.

      • Fancy BISH May 4, 2020

        I think the remix is the version that will be the one that is credited if Savage goes #1 and/or going forward…the remix will have more “points” next week…they chart as one song, the original and remix both help the song’s overall “points”…but it will now say featuring Beyonce on the actual chart!

      • Yolanda May 4, 2020

        Thanks for the explanation. Got it now.

    • Real Facts May 4, 2020

      Congratulations Girl! U own it!

    • Doja Cat SaySo May 4, 2020

      Good for Camila😇 congrats!

  9. G-bby May 4, 2020

    Good for Meg! I am not really a fan but this is a good look for the culture and female rap. I love the remix more than the original.

  10. Gabby Wells May 4, 2020

    That’s good and all but Cassie song Makeup Featuring Nicki Minaj leaked and that’s what should be on billboard 🤷🏼‍♂️

  11. Nicky May 4, 2020

    😂😂😂. Dope!

    Hit. Camicky doing a remix to try something. Desperate


    • Clarks0o0ñ May 4, 2020

      Honey megan is about to score a number one song with a feature remix

      I thought u said she didnt need a remix ?

  12. Yolanda May 4, 2020

    Congratulations. Thanks for bringing lineage back to what we created: RAP!

  13. Yolanda May 4, 2020

    I know this sounds selfish, but I don’t want Meg to get a Hot 100 #1 this early in her career. I know it would open doors for acting, etc., but it could also stagnant her career. Fancy, CardiB, 50Cent peaked too soon. Michael Jackson’s music was always compared to Thriller and Whitney Houston/I Will Always Love You. PLUS, if Megan peaks too soon, she will be forced to use Pop artists on her future music, and I want the music to stay in the streets where it originated.

  14. SayHey May 5, 2020

    Beyonce’s last 4 top 10 s are or will be all be features or collabs..

  15. Onika+The+R*****+Whisperer May 5, 2020

    Megan will be a one-hit-wonder.

    Her face just looks too much like a horse for her to be successful in the long run
