Nicki Minaj, Doja Cat, Beyonce, Megan Thee Stallion hit it big landing No. 1 and 2 on Billboard Hot 100

Doja Cat's remix of "Say So" featuring Nicki Minaj hit the top of the charts. On the Billboard Hot 100, the much-awaited collaboration soared high from No. 6 to No. 1, making it the first time for both artists to land their feet highest on the list.  

Doja Cat's remix of "Say So" featuring Nicki Minaj hit the top of the charts. On the Billboard Hot 100, the much-awaited collaboration soared high from No. 6 to No. 1, making it the first time for both artists to land their feet highest on the list. 

"Say So," the highly anticipated remix, was dropped on May 1. Doja Cat-Nicki Minaj tandem comes in after almost six years for two women to make the first Hot 100 No. 1. The last song to achieve this feat was "Fancy" by Iggy Azalea ft. Charli XCX on June 7, 2014. It stayed on the top spot for seven weeks. So far, only six singles from female solo artists doing a duet have made it to No. 1 on Hot 100 from 1979 to this year.

Nicki Minaj had to wait for 109 songs before landing the top spot. Her previous 108 hits made it to the Hot 100 charts, but the elusive No. 1 was slippery for the star rapper. Minaj now breaks the record for the most extended wait for a Hot 100 artist to gain the top rank. She scored the highest at No. 2 in 2014 with "Anaconda."

Minaj holds the record with the most Hot 100 songs on the chart's history among women. Her first appearance on the chart history was on Feb. 20, 2010 courtesy of Lil Wayne's "Knockout." It took her 10 years and three months to mark a first No. 1. "Say So" remix gives her the 18th top 10 on Hot 100.

On her Twitter account under the tag Mrs. Petty, Minaj thanked Doja Cat and her Barbz (Minaj's fan base) for the achievement they made.

The long, arduous wait is worth it for Minaj as she breaks another charted history. 

Meanwhile, not far behind from the first No. 1 hit of Doja Cat & Minaj is another great remix of Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage" with the superstar Beyoncé. The collaboration surges from No. 4 to No. 2. 

The one-two punch from the four ladies marks the first time in music history that four women and from black descent made it to the top of the Hot 100 list at the same time. Megan Thee Stallion, on her Twitter, wrote of her happiness "to be a part of the history made today."

Kehlani, Chris Brown, Tyga are among those who congratulated the ladies for their success.

"Say So" Journey

The original version of Doja Cat was released in November 2019. The song was written by the 24-year old singer-rapper whose real name is Amalaratna Zandile Dlamini. "Say So" is the fifth single from "Hot Pink," her second studio album. The song gave her first Top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, which came from No. 33 to No. 16 in early March.

The song became even more viral and quickly surged the charts from a TikTok dance challenge created by Haley Sharpe.

The team-up of Doja Cat and Minaj has long been speculated as far back November 2019 when she released her album. Doja herself admitted she was a big fan of Minaj during an interview with Billboard last year.
