Migos Earns First No. 1 on Hot 100 with ‘Bad and Boujee’

Raindrops, drop top. Migos went straight to the top.

Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff have landed their first No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Bad and Boujee.” Lil Uzi Vert, who guests on the track, also earns his first placement atop the coveted chart with the popular smash.

Part of “Bad and Boujee’s” success has been attributed to viral influence. Videos and memes playing on the song’s “raindrop, drop top” lyrics have become trendy on social media. Among those are clips of “F.R.I.E.N.D.S.” actors and “Sid the Science Kid” characters dancing to the infectious tune.

“Bad and Boujee” replaces Rae Sremmurd’s Gucci Mane-assisted “Black Beatles” at the top of the chart. Like “Boujee,” “Black” was also catapulted to the pinnacle position with the help of a viral campaign. For “Beatles,” it was the Mannequin Challenge phenom.

“Bad and Boujee” could have staying power. Last night, Donald Glover called it “the best song ever” during his acceptance speech at the Golden Globes, bringing even more attention to the Metro Boomin-produced track. The effects of the superstar shoutout and the subsequent memes will be seen on next week’s chart.

Elsewhere in the top 10, The Weeknd’s Daft Punk-assisted “Starboy” lands at No. 4, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj’s “Side to Side” duet moves up to No. 6, Maroon 5 and Kendrick Lamar’s “Don’t Wanna Know” collaboration sits at No. 7, Drake’s “Fake Love” holds at No. 9, and MGK and Camila Cabello’s “Bad Things” jumps 12-10.
