Cardi B’s “Up” rises to #1 on this week’s edition of the Billboard Hot 100.

The song, which was #6 last week, seizes the throne from Drake’s “What’s Next.”

The Cardi B song enjoyed another strong week of sales and streams, as well as growing radio activity. Beyond its ongoing buzz, the song received a lift from the artist’s high-profile performance at last weekend’s Grammy Awards.

“Up” follows “Bodak Yellow,” “I Like It,” “Girls Like You,” and “WAP” as Cardi B’s fifth career #1 on the Hot 100. Cardi B is the only credited performer on “Up” and “Bodak Yellow,” making her the first female rapper to reach #1 with two separate solo songs.

Bruno Mars & Anderson .Paak’s “Leave The Door Open” rises two spots to #2 this week, while Olivia Rodrigo’s “drivers license” ascends two spots to #3. The aforementioned “What’s Next” takes #4.

Up two places, The Weeknd’s “Save Your Tears” grabs #5 on this week’s listing.
