Houston natives and female music stars, Megan Thee Stallion and Beyonce, have nabbed the No. 1 spot on this week’s Billboard Hot Rap Songs list, with the remix of Stallion’s “Savage”. Their leap to the top comes a day after they made Billboard history, standing tall and proud with fellow musicians Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj. 

Earlier in the week, Doja Cat and Nicki Minaj’s remix of Doja’s hit song ‘Say So’ shot to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Megan Thee Stallion and Beyonce’s remix of Stallion’s ‘Savage’ followed closely, occupying the No. 2 spot on the Hot 100. This marks the first time in Billboard history that four black women claim the top 2 spots on the Billboard Hot 100. 

‘Savage’ – The Remix, continues to be a defining moment in both Stallion and Beyonce’s career. Marking their first No. 1 on the Hot Rap Songs list, the song has also claimed the No. 1 spot on the “all-genre Streaming Songs and Rap Streaming Songs Chart”. The last song by Megan Thee Stallion to hit the Hot Rap Songs list, was the summer hit “Hot Girl Summer”, featuring Ty Dolla Sign and Nicki Minaj, which went on to peak at No. 5. 

Beyonce, too, basks in the glory of the Billboard Rap Songs ranking in a career-first. Her feature on “03 Bonnie and Clyde” with husband Jay-Z hit No. 2 on release.  

The remix of ‘Savage’ hit streaming services on April 30th; announced by an ecstatic Megan Thee Stallion, the track garnered fan attention immediately and has since been streamed 42.1 million times. 

Megan Thee Stallion took to social media to express her gratitude, tweeting: “I’m so happy to be a part of the history that was made today”. “Savage” is out now on all streaming platforms.

Future Announces New Album ‘High Off Life’

This week has been bustling with news of brand new collabs and albums. Now, adding to that mix is none other than Future. The artist just announced that his upcoming album titled, ‘High Off Life’ is slated to drop this Friday, the 15th. Which, might we remind you, coincides with the release of the Jonas Brothers’ new single ‘X’. So, Friday’s going to result in quite the fight for the spotlight, huh?

The best part about Future’s new album is the fact that it features quite the star-studded cast. Future announced that ‘High Off Life’ will feature DaBaby, Travis Scott, Young Thug, Drake, Meek Mill, Lil Uzi Vert and a number of other artists. As you can see, he’s lined up some of the biggest names from the Rap World. Which means that we can expect this album to be quite the ride from start to finish.

What the Tracklist & Cover Art Offer

It looks like a lot of these featured artists are returning the favour by joining Future on this new project. And that’s because, over 2019, he’s also made guest appearances on some of their tracks. In fact, this January, Future joined forces with Drake for two stand-out tracks. These have even gone on to dominate charts across the globe. The tracks are, ‘Desires’ and ‘Life is Good’ which appear on Drake’s latest mixtape, ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’.

Might we also add that Future took to social media to make this big announcement. He revealed not just the album title, release date and cover art, but the tracklist too. The cover art is a simple black and white photograph of Future from what seems like one of his stadium gigs. The tracklist follows the same colour scheme, this time with a photograph of Future with his head hung low.

We’re just two days away from the release, so for now, we can take our time to revel in this fantastic tracklist. 

Dua Lipa x Normani Collab May Be Around the Corner

For all of you still soaking up the retro goodness Dua Lipa’s latest album, Future Nostalgia, brought. Well, we’ve got news for you. Not many know that Dua Lipa actually sat down with both Miley Cyrus and Normani to create some tunes for the album. But why didn’t they make the cut?

Dua Lipa stopped by the ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’ virtual show to chat all things ‘Future Nostalgia’. As expected, this very question popped up.  When pressed by host Andy Cohen, the pop star hinted at the status of collaborations with both artists.

“Well, the one with Miley that we did together, we actually ended up deciding that we wanted to get into the studio and do something different,” Lipa confessed. “But we actually hadn’t had the chance to get back in and work on something new, so hopefully we’ll do something I guess once quarantine is over and we can all hang out again. We’re hoping to do that.”

If we’re drowning under new music right now, you can imagine the flood that will arrive once our lockdown days are behind us…But thankfully, while Miley and Dua Lipa’s collab might be quite a distance away. With Normani though, it’s a different story.

What Went Down with Normani

“The one with Normani, you might hear…soon,” Dua said. So, it clearly looks like there’s a brand new power couple entering the block. And that means that now, more than ever, we’ve got to keep our eyes and well, ears peeled for any hint of a release date.

We should also mention that Normani’s added feather after feather to her cap when it comes to collabs. In the latter half of last year, she joined forces with Nicki Minaj on the track, ‘Bad to You’ which featured in the film ‘Charlie’s Angels’. In 2020, she struck gold, yet again. Normani teamed up with Megan Thee Stallion for the track, ‘Diamonds’ which featured as the lead single for the film, ‘Birds of Prey’.

And whenever her collab with Dua Lipa drops, we can undoubtedly say that it will take the world by storm.
