For centuries, it seemed as if male musicians would continuously rule the Billboard charts. In recent events, songs like “The Box” by Roddy Rich, “Circles” by Post Malone, and “Toosie Slide” by Drake made their way to the No. 1 slot, kicking down all genre-defying artists from getting recognition. But, given the music industries lenience towards women becoming rappers, it’s only right for some to ascend to the top. Now, without further ado, female musicians are claiming what’s rightfully theirs.
As of today, Billboard reported that Doja Cat and rapstress icon, Nicki Minaj’s “Say So (Remix)” is officially No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. Surprisingly this happens to be Minaj’s 109th charted title. Not to mention, Megan Thee Stallion and Queen Bee, a.k.a Beyoncé‘s “Savage (Remix)” follows right after Cat’s song at No. 2. What I’m about to say may come as a double shocker, but this is Beyoncé’s 19th entry on the Billboard Hot 100. And get this? Both songs are remixes!
All things considered, it’s safe to conclude that when you have two female bosses backing you up, you’re sure to win. Following each track on the charts is songs like Drake’s “1993” with Playboi Carti at No. 7 and DaBaby‘s “Rockstar” at No. 9.
In the words of Beyoncé off her song “Run The World (Girls)”: “Make your check come at they neck/Disrespect us no they won’t.”
