Megan Thee Stallion is currently all over the world Billboard charts with his new single “Hiss”, which arrived a little over a week ago. The song exploded into double-digit charts, opening the top spot on most of them. As he launches atop a specific count, the rapper links up with two other superstars for a bit of history.
“Hiss” opens at No. 1 on the streaming songs chart this week. Billboard compiles and publishes the ranking every frame to show what songs Americans are listening to on platforms like Spotify and AppleAAPL Music. Stallion earns his fourth career No. 1 with “Hiss,” marking his first win in several years.
The rapper assembled her first trio of champions in 2020, which proved to be a hugely successful period for the hip-hop powerhouse. Before the arrival of “Hiss,” Stallion previously dominated the streaming songs chart with all of the following singles: “Savage,” “WAP” featuring Cardi B, and “Body.” These tracks all reached #1 on the streaming-only track list, within a few months of each other.
With a fourth No. 1 under her belt, Stallion is now tied for third among solo female artists on the Streaming Songs chart. She’s currently on par with Miley Cyrus and Cardi, with whom she shares a former manager.
In first place among all women with the most #1 hits on the streaming song chart is, as one might expect, Taylor Swift. The singer-songwriter has earned eight stays in the penthouse so far. Ariana Grande comes in second, with five leaders.
Before this week, Stallion was tied for the fifth No. 1 spot in the history of the streaming songs chart. She was previously on the same level as Beyoncé and Olivia Rodrigo, but she has now surpassed them, at least for now. Either one might find another frontman soon — and Beyoncé might, since she just released two new singles.
By including male artists, the order of top-performing artists in the streaming song chart changes significantly. Drake is by far the winner, with 20 No. 1s. He remains the only name to appear on the list of double-digit leaders. Justin Bieber has scored a half-dozen leaders, Travis Scott is tied with Grande with five, and Lil Baby is tied with Stallion and his contemporaries, with four No. 1s.
