Megan Thee Stallion Becomes First Woman To Top The Billboard Rap Songwriters Chart

It’s been a big year filled with ups and downs for Texas-born rapper Megan Thee Stallion. Like everyone in the world, the star suffered a tumultuous 2020 but still managed to come out on top. 

Megan Thee Stallion first really popped in the hip hop scene last year. The term ‘Hot Girl Summer’ trended for weeks because of the rapper and thus bolstered her into unimaginable fame. 

Since then, Megan has made headlines for her hot record-breaking tunes despite being shot a few months ago. Take a look at how Meg became one of the hottest rappers in the game this year alone.

Billboard launched their Rap Songwriters chart in 2019. Since then, every number one artist on the chart has been a man until Megan Thee Stallion took over this August, making her the first woman to take the no. 1 spot.

Megan Thee Stallion is credited with three hit songs on the latest Hot Rap songs charts. These songs include WAP featuring Cardi B, Savage Remix featuring Beyonce, and Girls In The Hood.

In addition to her rap songwriter achievement, Meg takes the no.2 spot for the Hot 100 Songwriters chart. Her double charting status makes her the highest-charting female rapper ever since the chart’s launch. 

Megan’s reign does not stop there. The seductive Southern belle’s collaboration with Cardi B also breaks records. The duo’s WAP has the most total streams in its release week, with 93 million streams in the U.S.
