It’s Megan Thee Stallion’s world, and we’re just living in it! The Grammy-winning rapper kicked off Black History Month in the best way possible—by topping the Billboard Hot 100 chart with her latest single “Hiss”, her first solo song to hit No. 1.

“Hiss” debuted atop the Hot 100 chart with 29.2 million first-week streams, 2.9 million radio airplay audience impressions, and 104,000 downloads sold during its debut week. It’s Stallion’s first solo single to achieve this feat and third overall, joining A-list collaborations “Savage” ft. Beyoncé and “WAP” ft. Cardi B.

Seeing “Hiss” hit No. 1 is just the latest in the series of amazing news that the rapper shared with her fans in recent weeks. She also revealed that she’ll embark on Hot Girl Summer Tour later this year, and announced a distribution deal with Warner Music shortly after her chart-topping single hit the shelves.

“Hiss” won a pretty tight race to debut at No. 1, defeating Jack Harlow’s “Lovin on Me”, which dipped to the No. 2 spot this week. Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer”, Teddy Swims’ “Lose Control”, and Tate McRae’s “Greedy” joined them in the top five, while Benson Boone’s “Beautiful Things” broke into the top ten.
