Roddy Ricch officially bests Justin Bieber to get No. 1

On Monday, it was officially announced that Ricch’s “The Box” would be No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Bieber’s “Yummy” came in at No. 2.

Folks had been critical of Bieber as of recent, due to the fact that he reposted graphics made by his fans that encouraged them to buy and stream “Yummy” so it could get to No. 1

Not only did Ricch hit No. 1 on the Hot 100, his album, Please Excuse Me For Being Antisocial, also returned to No. 1 at the Billboard Top 200 albums chart.

Bieber congratulated Ricch on Twitter, writing, “Thanks everyone. So thankful. #yummy. @RoddyRicch You had to go and make a banger smh! Haha ur the man!! Love the song!! congrats on your first #1!! Everyone go stream #thebox”

People don’t think Justin Bieber’s congratulations were sincere

“This is so fake lmao he tried it,” commented one fan. Another person said, “
Let’s not act like a couple [of] days ago you were hatin on the kid.”

Some people even thought that Bieber was being shady by putting the “first #1” in the tweet as well. “That was shots fired, ‘Your first 1#’” wrote someone.

However, Bieber did have some fans stick up for him. One said, “Y’all are continuously toxic af!!!!!! had he said something rude y’all would have been mad now here he is congratulating this man and y’all still find a negative in that as If y’all know him to know his intentions why y’all gotta find the negative in everything!?”

Bieber’s next album is scheduled to come out soon.
