“ Up” arrives with, no surprise, a high streaming sum. As per MRC Data 31.2 million U.S streams registered in the week ending Feb11. And hence this total allows for a No.1 start pm the R&B/Hip-Hop streaming songs chart making it the fifth leader of her career. Tracks No.24 debut last week (on the chart dated Feb13) marked Cardi’s highest entrance among 20 singles on the R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, white its 24-18 increase on the current chart ties “ Motorsport,” her collaboration with Migos and Nicki Minaj, as her best second-week rank of those entries. “Up” ascends as it registers 8.7 million in audience impressions in its first full tracking week on the radio format, which wrapped on Feb.14.
