The same credit score change occurred final yr when Nicki Minaj was faraway from the Sizzling 100 itemizing for Doja Cat’s “Say So.” On the time, Billboard defined, “After two weeks of Minaj exhibiting as a featured artist on ‘Say So’ on the Sizzling 100 and different charts that make the most of the identical methodology, solely Doja Cat is now listed, as the unique model, with out Minaj, is now driving the vast majority of total exercise for the music; the change doesn’t have an effect on any of Minaj’s achievements on these charts the previous two weeks, and he or she continues to not be credited on the music on any airplay charts, because the overwhelming majority of the music’s airplay remains to be for the unique model.”
The DaBaby model of the music remains to be doing on different charts, although: On this week’s Sizzling 100, it rose from No. four to No. 3, only one spot away from its all-time peak.
