Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” Leaps Into Top Five on Billboard Hot 100
"Bad and Boujee" is the biggest song of both Migos and Lil Uzi Vert's careers so far, and now it's gotten an even bigger boost, as Billboard reports that the song has hit No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart for the week ending Jan. 14.
The track jumped from No. 13 on the chart to No. 2, landing only behind Rae Sremmurd's "Black Beatles." It also became the most streamed song of the week, grabbing over 32 million streams. There's little doubt the record was pushed along by all the memes Twitter created for the song's "raindrop, drop top" line recently.
The song has taken off in recent months after being released in late October of 2016. Produced by Metro Boomin and G Koop, it's the lead single off the Atlanta trio's highly anticipated upcoming sophomore album Culture.
On Wednesday (Wed. 4), Migos announced the LP would be dropping on Jan. 27. A day before that, they released the latest single from the album "Call Casting" complete with a video shot in Nigeria.
As hot as Quavo, Offset and Takeoff got years ago with songs like "Versace" and "Fight Night," this feels like a peak moment for the group, especially given Quavo's solo stardom and Offset's growing popularity, thanks in no small part to his monster verse on "Bad and Boujee." Now we wait for the LP.
