Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B's undeniable smash "WAP" owns the latest Billboard Hot 100 chart, entering at No. 1 with the most first-week streams ever. It also earned the biggest sales week of the year, racking up 125,000 units sold.

"WAP" is Cardi's fourth chart-topper, most among all female MCs – quite the feat. Meanwhile, Meg is celebrating this achievement for the second time in her career following the remix for "Savage" featuring Beyoncé in May.

Together, Meg and Cardi created the first original collab between two female rappers to debut atop the Hot 100.

Cardi expressed her excitement and thanks via an IG video. "Thank you to my fans Megan fans, Thank you the world for listening," she wrote in the caption. "Im just soooo thankful I can’t even type it. Imma get like a bad b***h and tell ya later." Indeed, she later flexed a matching Louis Vuitton fit in 94-degree weather.

Meg celebrated on the 'Gram too, writing, "me and cardi just got off the phone screaming." She then passed a brief note along to her partner: "thank you for all your words of encouragement, thank you for all the laughs, & thank you for having me on the record."

Yet Cardi took her appreciation a step further, gifting Meg a brand new tiger-themed Hermès Birkin bag.

Elsewhere in the Billboard universe, The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" set a new record for the longest time spent at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart, tallying an incredible 19 straight weeks.
