Benefiting from the GRAMMY effect following Cardi’s performance at Music’s Biggest Night, the track has climbed five places to officially snatch the top spot.
The rapper’s latest win means she’s netted #1s with two successive singles (see: predecessor ‘WAP’).
So how did Belcalis pull off the feat?
Over the course of the U.S tracking week, ‘Up’ racked up 22.7 million streams, 18,000 digital downloads, and a radio audience of 34.9 million.
It means Cardi extends her record as the female rapper with the most Hot 100 #1s.
Cardi now the first female rapper in history with two #1 hits on the Hot 100 with no accompanying acts (‘Bodak Yellow,’ ‘Up’).
She adds to a success narrative that includes being the only female Rap artist to achieve chart-topping singles in two decades (2010s and 2020s).
Released on February 5, ‘Up’ became the highest-debuting solo song by a female rapper on the Hot 100 since Lauryn Hill’s ‘Doo Wop (That Thing)’ in 1998.
Cardi’s previous #1s are ‘WAP’ featuring Megan Thee Stallion (2020), Maroon 5’s ‘Girls Like You’ (2019), ‘I Like It’ (2018), and ‘Bodak Yellow’ (2017).
