Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion are here to break some records! Fresh off the release of their incredibly catchy song and its equally eye-catching music video on Aug. 7, “WAP” has made one hell of a debut. On Aug. 17, Billboard announced that the song not only debuted at No. 1, but it also debuted with 93 million US streams, which is the most ever for a song in its opening week. “WAP” is the first women rap collaboration in history to debut at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, making it even more special.
The rappers both shared their reactions to the news on social media, and it’s clear they are ecstatic! “Me and cardi just got off the phone screaming 😭😭😭,” Megan wrote on Instagram. “God is so great 🙏🏾 THANK YALL !!! @iamcardib thank you for all your words of encouragement, thank you for all the laughs, & thank you for having me on the record #WAP.” Cardi was equally pumped up, writing, “I’m sooo f*ckin happy. I’m so proud of us . . . I did NOT see this coming I wasn’t even expecting all this yooo.”
“WAP” is Cardi B’s fourth No. 1 hit and Megan’s second. Congratulations to this unstoppable duo!
