Who Just Knocked Taylor Swift Off The Top of The Charts?
Sorry, Taylor Swift can't come to the phone right now. Why? Because [her reign atop the Billboard Hot 100] is dead.
Swift, whose "Look What You Made Me Do" effectively staved off "Despacito" from beating Mariah Carey's record of weeks spent at No. 1, has, herself, fallen off the top of the charts. While she hangs out at No. 3, it's come-from-behind Cardi B and the seemingly unstoppable "Bodak Yellow" that's finally claimed top honors.
"Bodak," which first cracked the Top 10 in August, has officially reached the top spot after a push by fans, according to Billboard. The song notched 6.4 million domestic streams, up 14 percent, the site reported, and claimed 56,000 downloads. Swift managed 58,000 downloads and 32.7 million streams.
Post Malone's "Rockstar" has landed at No. 2 in only its second week on the charts.
With the new ranking, Cardi B becomes the first woman since Lauryn Hill and “Doo-Wop (That Thing)," which dropped in 1998, to have a No. 1 solo rap song. More, she's just the fifth female rapper in history to make it to the top.
