Roddy Rich has BOTH top spots on Billboard’s Hot 100 and the Billboard 200.
The breakout star that is none other than Roddy Ricch is already breaking major records. The Los Angeles rapper just earned his first ever #1 and he beat out Justin Bieber new track “Yummy”, for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. “The Box” rose from last week’s No. 3 spot and was neck and neck with Bieber this week, but ultimately took the top spot.
Roddy’s single “The Box” currently has 68.2 million U.S. streams and counting according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. Mind you, the track is doing these numbers without an offical music video yet as well! The streaming numbers are also the third-highest for any song, behind Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” with 72.2 million+ and of course Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road,” 143 million+.
“The Box” is off of Roddy’s debut studio album Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, also in the No.1 spot on the Billboard 200 TWICE (Dec. 21 and Jan. 18). Roddy Ricch is also the first artist to hold both top spots on the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 since Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s song “Shallow” from the A Star Is Born movie last March. Congrats to Roddy!!!
