WAP is the First Female Rap Collab in History to Debut at No. 1

18 August 2020

Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion officially beat Ariana Grande, who previously held the record for most first week streams.

Just a week after WAP was released, it debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and that is the first time that a female rap collab debuts at No. 1. You may think that to be the first ladies in history to achieve a certain record is overwhelmingly exciting, but they broke a bunch of other records too like the record for the most first week streams ever! It’s a decisive record too; 93 million streams while the previous holder, Ariana Grande’s 7 Rings, logged 85.3 million back in February 2019. 

We can go on and on about how incredible the song and video is (more than 20 million views in the first 24 hours says it all), but we’ll just let the data speak for us.

This song has managed to break so many records on the Billboard 100, solely in the first week it was released in. Here’s a list:

  1. WAP is the first female rap collab in history to debut at #1
  2. The song is now the most streamed song during opening week in history
  3. Cardi b is now the first female rapper in history to earn #1 hits in multiple decades
  4. The song has the biggest sales week of 2020 (125k)
  5. Both Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s WAP joined Rain on Me (Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande) to be the only all-female collabs in history to debut at #1
  6. Megan thee stallion has now joined Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and Roddy Ricch as the artists with the most #1 hits in 2020 (2 each)
  7. It extends Cardi B’s record as the female rapper with the most #1’s in history (4 in total)

One thing we do know, is that whatever we have to say about the song, we won’t be able to do it justice. So you’re gonna have to hear and see it for yourself.
