Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage," featuring Beyoncé, bounds from No. 5 to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. The track, which previously reached a No. 2 high after the arrival of its Beyoncé remix, becomes Megan Thee Stallion's first Hot 100 leader and Beyoncé's seventh.
"Savage," released on 1501 Certified/300 Entertainment, is the 1,102nd No. 1 in the Hot 100's 61-year history.
Here's a deeper look at the song's Hot 100 coronation.
No. 1 in sales: "Savage" concurrently climbs 4-1 on the Digital Song Sales chart, up 55% to 30,000 downloads sold in the week ending May 21, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data, good for the Hot 100's top Sales Gainer award.
The song was on sale in a variety of physical/digital combination offerings during the tracking week, including autographed CD and vinyl copies put up for purchase in Megan Thee Stallion's webstore beginning May 15. Consumers could purchase CD and vinyl singles, each with a digital download; the download would be sent to consumers upon purchase, with physical versions due to arrive at a later date.
Megan Thee Stallion earns her first Digital Song Sales No. 1, while Beyoncé adds her eighth (the eighth-best total in the chart's archives).
Megan Thee Stallion locks up the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart as “Savage,” featuring Beyoncé, rises from the runner-up rank on the list dated May 23. The duo takes over thanks to a 5 percent boost to 27.3 million in audience in the week ending May 17, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data.
With their ascent, the Houston natives return female artists to the chart summit for the first time in nearly a year. The last woman at No. 1 was Cardi B, who posted the last of 20 straight weeks in charge through “Money” (nine weeks) and then “Please Me,” (11) a collaboration with Bruno Mars, on the June 15, 2019, list.
“Savage” gives Megan Thee Stallion her first leader on the chart, after a trio of prior top five showings. Her debut hit, “Big Ole Freak,” reached No. 5 in May 2019, while two later hits both went to No. 3: “Cash S--t,” featuring DaBaby last September, and “Hot Girl Summer,” a collaboration with Nicki Minaj and Ty Dolla $ign, in November.
Beyoncé nabs her eighth visit to the penthouse to tie Alicia Keys for the most No. 1s among women since the chart began in 1993. The superstar also ends a five-year drought from the summit, having last topped R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay with “7/11” in February 2015. Between the two chart champs, Bey logged eight other entries, with six entering the top 10. Lemonade single “Sorry” was the most successful, climbing to No. 3 in July 2016.
Megan Thee Stallion's "Savage," featuring Beyoncé, rises from No. 4 to No. 2 on the Hot 100, sparked by Beyoncé having joined on a remix. (Beyoncé now shows on the title on the Hot 100 for the first time, following the first full tracking week for the remix, which drove the majority of overall activity for the song.) Already the former's first top 10 on the chart, Beyoncé achieves her 19th.
"Savage" jumps 3-1 on Streaming Songs, up 53% to 42.1 million U.S. streams, becoming Megan Thee Stallion's first No. 1 on the chart and Beyoncé's third.
On Digital Song Sales, "Savage" holds at No. 2, gaining by 90% to 50,000 sold. "Savage" was on sale in physical/digital combination offerings during the tracking week, whereby consumers could purchase any of three vinyl singles with a download; the download would go to consumers upon purchase, with vinyl versions set to arrive at a future date.
"Savage" pushes 18-14 on Radio Songs, up 27% to 51.3 million in reach, and hits No. 1 on the multi-metric Hot Rap Songs chart, where Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé each earn their first leader.
Beyoncé broke the internet on Wednesday by teaming up with fellow Houston native Megan Thee Stallion for a remix of "Savage," the rapper's single that went viral on TikTok with nearly 19 million users participating in the "classy, bougie, ratchet" dance challenge.
Queen Bey brings her all-empowered heat in her three verses, paying homage to the song's TikTok fame ("Hips tik tok when I dance); her mother, Tina Lawson ("And my momma was a savage, think I got this… from Tina") and the Texas bombshell's hometown ("H-Town, goin' down").
"I’m literally crying," Megan Thee Stallion wrote on Instagram Wednesday. "Being from HOUSTON MF TEXAS this (expletive) means EVERYTHING to me !!!! SAVAGE REMIX FT THE QUEEN @BEYONCE OUT NOW!"
Both Beyoncé and Megan Thee Stallion are donating proceeds from the "Savage" remix to the Bread of Life, a disaster relief organization working to provide meals to Houston families amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Beyonce has paid tribute to the late basketball great Kobe Bryant.
Queen Bey, a regular guest at Los Angeles Lakers games, the franchise Kobe spent his entire pro career with, shared a series of images on social media remembering the future Hall of Famer.
In one post on Instagram, Bey captioned a now-famous image of Bryant on the sidelines at a Lakers game, kissing his daughter Gianna on the head. The pair both perished last weekend in a helicopter accident in Calabasas, along with seven others.
“I will continue to diligently pray for your Queens,” she writes. “You are deeply missed beloved Kobe.”
Beyonce also posted cute, separate photos of a young Kobe and Gianna, without comment.
Beyoncé has signed with Sony/ATV Music Publishing, Variety has learned.
Beyoncé and Jay-Z have worked closely for much of their careers with Jon Platt, who took the reins at the Sony Music company as chairman and CEO in 2019.
Platt already brought Rihanna over to his new home last fall, after moving to Sony/ATV from Warner/Chappell earlier in the year.
That the Carters would look to follow Platt at some point was close to a given, considering their mutual words of affection and high praise in the past.
Jay-Z called Platt his “brother” and said he was “the Obama of the music industry” when the publishing exec was the honoree at the annual City of Hope Spirit of Life dinner in October 2018. “This man has worked his way up from a Denver DJ to be the highest-ranking black executive,” he said.
Beyoncé performed at that same event. “I’m so honored to celebrate you tonight,” she said of Platt. “Most people in this industry lead with their ego, but you lead with your heart. You’ve touched so many lives, mine included.”
Beyoncé claims honor as the top music nominee for the 51st NAACP Image Awards with eight nominations. The two-hour ceremony will air live for the first time via BET Networks on Feb. 22 (8 pm. ET).
Beyoncé netted six music category nominations, including outstanding album (Homecoming: The Live Album), outstanding female artist, outstanding song-traditional (“Spirit”), outstanding song-contemporary (“Before I Let Go”), outstanding duo, group or collaboration (“Brown Skin Girl” featuring Blue Ivy, SAINt JHN & WizKid) and outstanding soundtrack/compilation album (The Lion King: The Gift). Her work also earned two additional nods for outstanding variety show-series or special and outstanding documentary-television (both for Homecoming: A Film by Beyoncé),
After accruing a whopping 23 Grammy Awards, Beyoncé is one step closer to adding an Oscar win to her list.
On Monday, Dec. 16, The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences announced shortlists in consideration for the 92nd Academy Awards in nine categories, including Music (Original Song). Queen Bey was nominated for her song "Spirit" from The Lion King.
According to a press release from The Academy, the 300-member music brand chose 15 songs from 75 entered. The list will be trimmed down to five when voting for the nominations begins Jan. 2. Nominees will be announced Jan. 13.
