‘WAP’ snagged the number 1 spot
Although it’s not that surprising, “WAP” catapulted to the top spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 charts. The song made history in the streaming department with 93 million during its first week, per Vulture.
That’s the highest amount for a debut week and it’s the most streams for track in 2020. Billed as a female empowerment anthem, “WAP” marks the second number one hit for Megan Thee Stallion and fourth for Cardi B.
Megan Thee Stallion scored her first number one back in May when she released the “Savage” remix featuring Beyoncé. Musically, the Houston-bred rapper has been having a great year. She and Cardi thanked fans and the video’s guest stars for showing so much love for “WAP.”
Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion have given money away in the past
Though the “WAP” phenomenon is driving the current wave of generous cash drops, each rapper is experienced in sharing money with social media fans.
As recently as April, Cardi B partnered with Fashion Nova for a coronavirus-related promotion that gave out $1,000 every hour for a full month. Fans were instructed to share their stories of hardship for the opportunity to win.
Since quarantine began in March, Megan Thee Stallion reached into her own pockets to help fans out with bills and other needs. She used Cash App to send thousands of dollars to individuals and in a separate effort, donated funds and tablets to a Houston nursing home facility.
It’s not too late for fans to get in on the latest promotion. Catch the “WAP” cash giveaway on Twitter until Aug. 20.
