Drake and Lil Durk‘s “Laugh Now Cry Later” is opening this week’s Billboard Hot 100 at No. 2, failing to overtake Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s “WAP” as the latter spends its second consecutive week atop the chart.

According to Billboard, “Laugh Now Cry Later” sold a total of 21,000 units in its first week and garnered 69.8 million streams. This marks Durk’s first top 10 entry and Drizzy’s 41st Hot 100 top 10, and further extends his lead for the most overall Hot 100 entries at 225, top 40 hits at 114 and most titles to open in the top 10 at 26.

Meanwhile, “WAP” is the first song to spend two weeks on top of the Hot 100 since Ariana Grande‘s “7 Rings” in February 2019, taking home 36,000 downloads in its second week. Cardi and Meg’s collaborative joint still holds the title of most streams in its first week of release with 93 million.
