Right behind it, though, is Migos and Lil Uzi Vert’s “Bad And Boujee,” which jumped from No. 13 last week to No. 2 this week. “Starboy” is now No. 3.
Migos’ sharp ascension is in thanks to streaming. “Bad And Boujee” is No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart, with help from YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music. The highest Migos had charted before “Bad And Boujee” was No. 69 with “Fight Night.”
This is the first time in a year and a half that the top two songs in the country were also the top two on the rap charts, according to Billboard. In May 2015, Wiz Khalifa’s “See You Again” and Fetty Wap’s “Trap Queen” were one and two, respectively.
Slim Jxmmi, Swae Lee, Gucci Mane, Mike WiLL Made It, Quavo, Offset, Takeoff and Metro Boomin all have something to do with the top two songs in the United States right now. What a beautiful thing.
