It was a battle betwen “rising stars” and “icons” as the top spot on this week’s Billboard Hot 100 chart was contested between four dominating artists of Beyonce, Doja Cat, Beyonce, and Megan Thee Stallion. The women ended up a tight call for number one, but “Say So” took the spot. both vying for No. 1. Now, marking victory in a close-as-hell charts race, the honor goes to “Say So.”
Can't make a blanket statement like that. There is still good music out there. I'm sad for you, T50.
