Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” Has Biggest Debut Streaming Week of All Time


Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s “WAP” is the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart this week, and it debuted with a record number of first-week streams, Billboard reports. The song was streamed 93 million times, surpassing the record previously held by Ariana Grande’s 85.3 million streams for “7 rings.”

The pair released “WAP” at the beginning of August. The video uses the radio-friendly “wet and gushy” edit of the song because the original was “too goddamn nasty” for YouTube, according to Cardi ahead of the video’s release. It features cameos from Normani, Rosalía, and Kylie Jenner, as well as Sukihana, Mulatto, and Rubi Rose.

The single was one of several new releases for Meg this year, who followed her March album Suga with the new single “Girls in the Hood” and a Beyoncé remix of “Savage.” Cardi’s most recent album was 2018’s Invasion of Privacy, though she teased a new album with a freestyle posted to Instagram last fall.
