Megan Thee Stallion’s single ‘Hiss’ has officially sprung into the top spot sitting at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The rapper grabbed her third lead with the debut of the diss track following her two songs in 2020 grabbing that same spot: “Savage,” with Beyoncé, for a week that May, and Cardi B’s “WAP,” on which Megan Thee Stallion is featured, for four weeks beginning that August.

The Hot 100 blends all-genre U.S. streaming (official audio and official video), radio airplay and sales data, the lattermost metric reflecting purchases of physical singles and digital tracks from full-service digital music retailers; digital singles sales from direct-to-consumer (D2C) sites are excluded from chart calculations.

‘Hiss’ was released independently on Hot Girl Productions. The rapper signed an agreement with Warner Music Group, with Roc Nation continuing to be involved in managing her as of February 2nd.

The song starts as the 1,163rd No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 65-year archives, and the 75th to debut at the summit.

In its first week, the song garnered 29.2 million streams, 2.9 million airplay audience impressions, and 104,000 downloads sold January 26-Feb1, according to Luminate.


Megan also went on to release the original clean and explicit version, and even one titled “chopped ‘n screwed’ debuting on January 31.

The single went on to be in the top among the the Streaming Songs and Digital Song Sales charts. Megan Thee Stallion adds her fourth leader on the former, following “Savage” (one week at No. 1), “WAP” (10 weeks) and “Body” (one), all in 2020. She also lands her fourth No. 1 on the latter, after “Savage” (three weeks) and her Cardi B collabs “WAP” (two) and “Bongos” (one, last September).

“Hiss” concurrently opens atop the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts, which use the same methodology as the Hot 100, marking Megan Thee Stallion’s third No. 1 on each ranking. “Savage” and WAP” ruled Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for a respective two and 10 weeks and Hot Rap Songs for three and eight frames, respectively.

Jack Harlow’s “Lovin on Me” dips to No. 2 on the Hot 100, following a career-best four weeks at No. 1, while adding a third week atop the Radio Songs chart (75.9 million, up 3%). It leads Rap Airplay for a seventh week and Rhythmic Airplay for a sixth frame and ascends to No. 1 on Pop Airplay, where it’s Harlow’s second leader, after “Industry Baby,” with Lil Nas X, for one week in November 2021; “Lovin on Me” also topped Mainstream R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay for two weeks beginning in January.


Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” fell from 2-3 on the Hot 100, following four nonconsecutive weeks at No. 1 beginning in October; Teddy Swims’ “Lose Control” holds at its No. 4 high; and Tate McRae’s “Greedy” drops to No. 5 from its No. 3 best.
