It’s Official: Doja Cat & Nicki Minaj Score The First #1 Hit of their Careers With ‘Say So’

Published: Monday 11th May 2020 by Rashad

Say what?  ‘Say So,’ the disco-tinged tune from Doja Cat, has pounced to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 thanks to a little help from Rap Queen Nicki Minaj.

Details await inside:

In one of the most exciting Hot 100 battles in recent memory, Cat has outpaced the Megan Thee Stallion hit – ‘Savage’ – in the race to #1.  The latter, thanks to an assist from Beyoncé on the song’s remix, enjoyed a massive sales and streaming boost that pushed it to the runner-up spot on the tally.

Yet, despite the hype to accompany it, their combined star-power wasn’t enough to generate a lasting lead against the potent combo of Doja and Nicki who – thanks to the combined sales of vinyl, multiple digital editions (including remixes), and strong Pop radio airplay – crossed the finish line first.

Let’s dive into the numbers. ‘Say So’:

  • soared 966% in sales to 66,000 downloads
  •  scored 96.2 million audience impressions at radio
  • achieved 30.3 million U.S. streams – up 87%

A history-making triumph, the lift to #1 marks the first time ever two female rappers occupied the spot.  Similarly, it marks the first time in history two female rappers simultaneously occupied the #1 and #2 spots on the tally.

In addition to being the first chart-topper of Doja’s short career, the win comes of particular note for Minaj as tenancy at the top spot on the tally comes over 10 years after the release of her official debut single.  In the time since, she’s amassed more entries on the chart than any of her female counterparts.

Now, she can add #1 song to her incomparable Hot 100 resume.

    Congratulations Doja

    • Career Ender May 11, 2020

      And most importantly Queen of Rap Nicki!

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 11, 2020

        Nah, the song would have hit number with or without nicki .

      • CuriousStupidGuy May 11, 2020

        Wait.. so the original without Nicki hit number one. You said without Nicki it would have hit number 1 so I’m guessing the original without Nicki hit #1???

    • Ra May 11, 2020

      Congrats to both

  2. Barbie’s world May 11, 2020

    The lesser girls really thought they ended the Queen. Congrats ladies❤️

    • Career Ender May 11, 2020

      The Bardi gang was found shaking

      • Biancacook May 11, 2020

        For what cardi got multiple #1 and a Grammy for best rap album all in her first go round. Nicki playing catch up and doja is finally getting recognition

      • Tito May 11, 2020

        🤷🏾‍♂️For what Cardi has three #1’s and a Grammy and her first was a SOLO number one congrats Doja and thank you for CARRYING Nikki to the top cause we all know her fans couldn’t do it with out you 🥴😉

      • Tasha+K May 11, 2020

        Shaking?? You sound like a real clown! The Bardi Gang has 3 number 1 songs, the first one with no collab, and it didn’t take her almost 11 years to do so. You are bothered. We love to see it!

      • CuriousStupidGuy May 11, 2020

        HaHa you mean the number #1 hit she got after her label spent massive dollars to get it all over radio and wherever else they could. If you know how the music industry works you would know Cardi owes much of her success to her label who synthetically pushes her music to the top of the charts.

  3. ME+YOU+US May 11, 2020

    Let all the non melinated gay men & becky thots come thru with hate…

    S/o to the QUEEN OF MUSIC..PERIOD..

  4. Clarks0o0ñ May 11, 2020

    Poor megan, she underestimated doja

    Beyonce is not a big draw.
    Her fans make a lot of noise on twitter but they rarely stream her music

    savage can still hit number one tho
    But ariana and bieber are coming next week
    That snitch with colourful hair is also coming next week.

    • Nicky May 11, 2020

      You sound STUPID!!!!!!!

      Doja Was Top 5 before the remix. Megan was top 15.

      How is that dummy Camicky doing with the remix.

      Stay out this conversation = Losers Club.

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 11, 2020

        Honey we are talking about girls with number 1’s

        Camila, doja and nicki all have number 1’s, where is normani?

        Normani is on the same record label with doja but compare their careers todays.

        doja got a number one song without any industry support, 272426252838 shoutouts from celebrities on Instagram and Twitter,

        An organic come up

    • Career Ender May 11, 2020

      Keep the Queen’s mouth out your ratchet tramp

  5. Rashad May 11, 2020

    Congrats to Doja and Megan. But more importantly this weeks charts show how wack streaming counts are. How does Travis Scott go from #1 last week to falling out of your top 10? They need to adjust how much streaming counts bc Travis def should not have any of his #1s

  6. Queen Barb May 11, 2020

    Icon ish!! congratulations to them both.

  7. Onika+The+R*****+Whisperer May 11, 2020

    1. Poor Flopyonce always being second best!!! LMAO!!!

    2. Poor Flopnika needing to clinge on another female rappers hit to get one herself. The first one of her decade long career at that.

    3. Congrats Doja!

    • None+of+your+business May 11, 2020

      Oh well. SHE GOT A NUMBER 1 BTCH!!!! AHHHHHHHH!!!!

      • Onika+The+R*****+Whisperer May 11, 2020

        But will she get one herself like Cardi did? Will she ever get a grammy? Will she ever not support pedôphiles? Lmao

    • Career Ender May 11, 2020

      You are just mad she has her foot on your flop faves’ necks for a while. When last was your fave in Top3 Hot100? 😂😂😂

      • Onika+The+R*****+Whisperer May 11, 2020

        When did your fave have multiple yet alone a single solo #1? When did your fave receive her Grammy? I’ll wait sweety LMAO

      • Yep May 11, 2020

        Not a -72 betting brave lmao. Piggybacking with the emphasis on piggy.

  8. Jeans May 11, 2020

    Congrats Doja & Nicki, even though it’s not an organic win.

  9. Urg May 11, 2020

    Damn Only Frauds is in shambles. Thought he said Doja will never get a No 1 hit. Congrats to Doja.

    • Only Facts May 11, 2020

      Honey, Doja will regret putting Nicki in this song. Nicki and the barbs will forever take credit for getting this song to number 1, and it will ruin Doja. The remix sucks and so does Nicki. Good luck getting another number 1 Nicki. Why didn’t her fans get anything from the last album to number 1? Why didn’t they get megaflop to the top 10? Oh that’s right, they didn’t have a stimulus check to allot them enough money to buy it multiple times. Congrats tho. Go off. 🤣

      • Urg May 11, 2020

        B**** please. I could not give a damn about the old cow Nicki but I know u seething in ur apartment cause Doja who u always acreaming homophobia at got a No 1 now go in ur corner and cry about it B****.

  10. Onika+The+R*****+Whisperer May 11, 2020

    Pedonika is fingering her puss out of joy as we speak. But she doesn’t care about charts she will tell you

    • Bogus May 11, 2020

      Haha you mad doggie ? You mad?

  11. TheOne May 11, 2020

    Lmao Haters swinging in the air right now 🤣🤣. Watch them come on here talking all that bs.. aht, aht save it 🤚🏾. Keep that negative energy over there.

  12. RIH May 11, 2020

    They love to try and count Nicki out. Now they all need to tour together after this C****** mess, That would be major.

  13. my+name May 11, 2020

    congratulations doja!

  14. Onika+The+R*****+Whisperer May 11, 2020

    Beyonce’s fans: we don’t care about charts


    Eggs on your on food stamps and welfare relying beyhive faces!!!

  15. Kyle May 11, 2020

    Congrats ladies! What a great week for music! People Focusing on the music, not drama for once! I really thought savage remix was gonna be #1 tho, It was everywhere, Even #1 for days on iTunes! But I love say so as well! Just not the remix, Either way congrats Nicki & doja!

    • Clarks0o0ñ May 11, 2020

      If u think this was about the music, u are delusional

      • Kyle May 11, 2020

        I meant the public in general. But I know say so remix going #1 wasn’t because of the music or it being better lol

  16. Clarks0o0ñ May 11, 2020

    Doja cat is on the same label with normani, but look at doja getting a number one song, while normani has completely been forgotten by the public.

    RCA records is not the problem.

    Normani = no talent

    Talent will always win

    No amount of hype, or industry support, or celebrity cosign can help ur career if u dont have talent

    • Onika+The+R*****+Whisperer May 11, 2020

      Or just be like Cümila: be a good cöck sucker

    • NawNaw May 11, 2020

      You sound dumb. Doja also almost got dropped by RCA after her first album tanked. Neither of Doja’s albums debuted in the top 90 on the billboard charts. And Doja didn’t get this #1 without Nicki. Nicki is the reason this is #1. Doja won’t have anymore big hits. Maybe two more top 20’s but this is her peak lol

      • Bogus May 11, 2020

        If they actually do a video treatment for all of Doja’s songs on Hot Pink she would very well have more top 20 hits..the other songs on her album are better than Say So

  17. Fancy BISH May 11, 2020

    Congrats to Doja and Nicki! #1 🥳 Only SIX songs by solo women teaming up have topped the Hot 💯 in history:
    Doja & Nicki – Say So
    Iggy & Charli – Fancy
    Rihanna & Britney – S&M
    Christina, Lil Kim, Pink & Mya – Lady Marmalade
    Brandy & Monica – The Boy Is Mine
    Barbra & Donna – No More Tears

  18. Nicky May 11, 2020

    Another L for Camicky the Clown

    Trying to hop on the remix bandwagon and didn’t even go top 200 😂😂.

    Congrats to Nicki, Megan, Bey and Doja

    True talent. All with SOLO hits.

    • Clarks0o0ñ May 11, 2020

      Camila= 2 number one songs
      Doja= 1 number one song
      Nicki = 1 number one song
      Normani = dancing

      • Nicky May 11, 2020

        Beyonce , Nicki, Megan, & Doja all love Normani. They don’t know Camicky. Normani has 3 Hot 100 hits and haven’t released an album of full EP yet.

        Winners pretty girl Circle. Camicky is not invited to sit at the table. 😂😂😂😂😂

        She can sit with Megan Trainer

      • Clarks0o0ñ May 11, 2020

        If beyonce loves normani why didnt she collaborate with her

        Instead bey collaborated with megan, cause she knows talent

        Normani will never sit at the table of girls who have number 1’s.
        She is a dancer

  19. It’s Barbie B**** May 11, 2020

    Main pop girls stats, we love to see that sh*t.

    • NawNaw May 11, 2020

      Main? 🤣

  20. Clarks0o0ñ May 11, 2020

    Nicki welcome to club of bad bìtches who have number 1’s

    Some people cant relate

    After all the industry support and celebrities co sign , that dancer’s career didnt take off.

    • Nicky May 11, 2020

      Nicki was already bad b**** status with her millions of albums sold. Camicky will never relate.

      Camicky can sit with Megan Trainer, Ashlee Simpson and Ciara.


      • Nicky May 11, 2020

        Not Ciara***** edit

  21. It’s Barbie B**** May 11, 2020

    Now release the sales total of the songs to really eff em up. 😂💕

  22. Clarks0o0ñ May 11, 2020

    .@NICKIMINAJ breaks the record for longest wait for a Hot 100 #1 hit, earning her first with her 109th entry.

    Damn, the struggle

    Congratulations nicki
    I’m not a hater
    I will always clap for anybody who wins.

  23. Onika+The+R*****+Whisperer May 11, 2020

    Nicki better enjoy the first and last and only no 1 hit of her career chile

    • Bogus May 11, 2020

      You are pressed about someone you supposedly hate that you don’t even know personally

      • Onika+The+R*****+Whisperer May 11, 2020

        And you defend a pedô enabler. What’s worse b****?

    • Bogus May 11, 2020

      Haha you mad doggie ? You mad?

  24. Kyle May 11, 2020

    Something seems fishy about this. I love both songs, but that say so remix wasn’t touching the savage remix. Maybe if Beyoncé would promote or just make a ig post for Megan the way Nicki did for doja. Idk something seems off about this #1. But congrats ladies!

  25. It May 11, 2020

    Now bardo Gang trying to bring up stripper b’s stats 😂😂 they pressed child….

    • NawNaw May 11, 2020

      Let’s see Doja and Nicki get three number 1 hits between the two of them 🤣🤣 Cardi and her GRAMMY and THREE #1 hits are unbothered. I heard Nicki had a hysterectomy so the old b**** can’t even have babies

    • Yep May 11, 2020

      You’re bothered. How did whale just get her first number one piggybacking after being out since Obama’s first term but you’re thinking about Cardi? Her power.

  26. Golden May 11, 2020

    A real queen and not a stream queen, but we been knew.

  27. Only Facts May 11, 2020

    Doja will regret putting Nicki on this song. Nicki and the barbs will forever take credit for getting this song to number 1. Nicki looks pathetic for having to jump on a song that was already popping for her first #1. I bet Nicki will say this is the lead single from her 5th album 🙄

    • I came to win May 11, 2020

      See when you the queen you can jump on any song, you pressed for what?

      • NawNaw May 11, 2020

        Let’s see Nicki and Doja get three #1 hits between the two of them 🤣 Nicki got cardi big shook.

      • my+name May 11, 2020

        now, now… it took ten years, countless features for the queen who jumps on anything, to actually land a number one hit.
        being bad said that, a real queen would have her own number ones to help carry another artist to number one (that’s true queen and iconic shhh). instead Nikki has ridden the coat tail of a hit and actually delivered some of her weakest bars to date.
        but hey congratulations 🎈 right?

      • my+name May 11, 2020

        *being had said that*

    • Bogus May 11, 2020

      Only Facts calm down Ms. Gurl. In part nicki is reps imo for this jumping to number 1 her fans and Doja’s fans came together to get the song to the top.

  28. &URPOINT? May 11, 2020

    Congrats to Doja and Nicki. It goes without saying Nick will never get another number. If Nick is the reasons the song is number 1 than why she don’t have more number 1’s.

  29. Justice for Chun li May 11, 2020

    Talent finally won! yess lord.

    • NawNaw May 11, 2020

      🤣😂 where’s they talent? They hopped on a song that sounds like it was meant for Katy Perry and begged people to use their stimulus checks to buy multiple copies….and idiots fell for it

  30. Yes!!! May 11, 2020

    Congrats to Doja and Nicki on their deserved Number 1.

  31. Hfh May 11, 2020

    It’s not her song… So…

    • Hfh May 11, 2020

      And i wouldn’t be surprised if Beyonce was helping with buying doja record just to get nicki her first #1 so she wouldn’t have weird vibes when she’s around her.

  32. Nicky May 11, 2020

    Camicky in 2020:

    Flop Remix
    Cancelled Tour
    Flop Solo Singles
    Flop Album

        I dont even know what to write cause the bìtch has no achievements

        I cant even drag drag her cause she has no achievements.

        I cant drag a bìtch with no hair.

        Normani is a bald bìtch

      • NawNaw May 11, 2020

        Normani and Camila f****** suck. Y’all are fighting over who is worse? Joke

    • Nicky May 11, 2020

      While recording her debut album.

      Camicky really thought she was going to get a Grammy 😂. No Dua has it. Another artist who hates Camicky & loves Normani. Talent.


      • Clarks0o0ñ May 11, 2020

        Brit award was not solo
        Rolling stone magazine cover was not solo

        Megan was on the same magazine cover with normani, look at megan’s career today
        Number 2 hit
        Top 10 mixtape

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

  33. I came to win May 11, 2020

    Queen Nicki is prof that you should never give up. Always keep trying and striving for more. I love her

    • NawNaw May 11, 2020

      Nicki and her hysterectomy are pathetic

      • Bogus May 11, 2020

        You have to be an Unamused teenager at home ..talking about hysterectomies? You’d know that is a health issue for women..SEETHE NICKI NUMBER 1 and y’all cannot take it lmao

  34. You wanna Minaj? May 11, 2020

    We luv a calculated queen, just came out of nowhere and snatched that number 1 right up. The bums are steaming lol 😝

  35. Dc May 11, 2020

    Meg was getting to arrogant cheesy ass glad she didn’t get to number 1 so she can brag about being the first rapper with a number 1 from ep ha ha 😂😂😂😂

  36. NawNaw May 11, 2020

    Cardi’s first #1 hit was solo. Some people can’t relate. Let’s see this Nicki and Doja get 3 #1 hits between the both of them 🤣 Nicki is such a clout chaser

    • I came to win May 11, 2020

      She done no one cares about her anymore

      • NawNaw May 11, 2020

        She’s done because she’s on a two year break? Artists in the 90’s and 00’s ALWAYS took two year breaks….then they came out with CLASSICS! Something Doja and Nicki have yet to create 🤣 F****** Demi Lovato or Normani or Daniel Cesar clusmev gotten this song to number 1…it’s a Katy Perry reject produced by Dr. Luke! Lol where’s the artistry? Y’all are bums

  37. Ratexxx May 11, 2020

    Yes…nicki is the queen of rap…for my generation….

    All that ish talking about how she’s a has-been…

    I know her lessors are mad as fugg….

    Beyondfake can’t win for ish…..dead

  38. Tyty May 11, 2020

    Yikes!! This will not be a lizzo moment for doja should have let her original sing go to number 1 without a remix. The barbz and Nicki will make sure this is seen as their number 1 doja will just be pushed in the back ground 🤷🏽‍♀️🥴

    • Bogus May 11, 2020

      No she will not her name is on this. You’re just mad Nicki is attached to it. A lot of y’all haven’t listened to Hot Pink and it shows. That album if the masses actually listen to it has songs on it that are better than Say So..hopefully her song Like That with Gucci Mane will blow up now since it’s been added to radio

      • &URPOINT? May 11, 2020

        Hot Pink is bomb!! Y’all sleeping if you haven’t heard it. This girl will have more number ones!! Boss B**** slays!

  39. Lou-Andrew Rodriguez May 11, 2020

    Haters eat that! Congrats ladies!!!!!!!!!!!

  40. Bogus May 11, 2020

    I don’t care what any of the people who are haters say! Nicki has a number now 1 of the many things y’all held over her head.
    Nicki would’ve been had a number 1 if streaming counted like it does now when she came out with Moment 4 Life, Monster would’ve got her a number 1 that song blew up because people couldn’t get over her verse, Anaconda should’ve been a number 1 y’all keep acting like she never release popular songs
    I hope Meg goes number 1 next week

    • &URPOINT? May 11, 2020

      69 will be #1 . Sorry Meg I don’t see this going to #1. She will get hers too she’s talented

  41. Gag May 11, 2020

    So how do we fell about Beyoncé being one of Nicki’s new sons? Let’s discuss ladies…

  42. Pat May 11, 2020

    Congrats Nikki. Top 2 n not number 2

  43. Jaquala+Fletcher May 11, 2020

    I don’t understand why all the songs I never really hear played get number 1. Savage and the remix are playing heavy on all stations in Ohio. I’m so confused congratulations to doja tho. Y’all making this about nicki when this is Doja song

  44. May 11, 2020

    Congratz to Doja and Nicki. Shout out to stallion and bay same way.

  45. Justmeeeee May 11, 2020

    The level of anger that is being felt by Nicki’s haters is beyond ridiculous.
    AFTER y’all talked ALL of that Trash…LoL

    Eat Cake !!!

    In my Nicki voice, “Dojaaaaa”!!!
    She did it

    So mow no more BS aboutnot having a #1 because SHE DOES NOW 🙂

    Deal with it.
    #Team Nicki

  46. Jennifer May 11, 2020

    Congrats to both Doja and Nicki well deserved.

  47. James May 11, 2020

    Wow! congrats to both Doja and Nicki!! Says So remix is one of my faves of 2020 so far!!🙌🏽🙌🏽🙌🏽
