We are barely half way through 2020 but so much has already happened that feels like a whole movie. Doja Cat and Megan Thee Stallion have now made their own contributions to history with the chart success of their latest offerings, Say So Remix and Savage Remix respectively.
Doja Cat this week earned her very first number one single on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming only one of a handful of female rappers to be able to boast this feat.
Real name Zandile Dlamini, the rapper’s triumphant soaring to the top spot comes after Nick Minaj was jumped on the track to add guest verses for the culture. The Say So remix, on which Minaj has now been credited, jumped from the sixth position to be crowned the biggest song in the world! With this milestone, this is the first time a collaboration between two female rappers has topped the chart in it’s history!
Although Doja had already scored a massive hit with Say So, whose visuals have been doing big numbers on Youtube, the buzz around Nicki’s appearance in the remix has definitely taken the hype around it to a whole new level. With the help of Tik Tok challenges and all the promo both girls have given the song, it was able to maximise on all its potential.
Not fair behind is Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé’s Savage remix. The banger, which made headlines last week when it premiered, bowed in the second position on the Billboard chart. Earlier in 2020, the original song’s entrance into the top 10 marked a big moment in Megan’s career. This was an exciting moment for her fans, as she’d managed to score a hit despite the ongoing strife between her and her former record label.
Beyoncé’s guest vocals on the song have helped it shoot up on the chart, thereby adding yet another historical moment for female rappers. This is the first time that four women of colour have occupied the top 2 positions on the chart. This means they basically have the two of the biggest songs in the world!
