Travis Scott and Kid Cudi, together, have garnered another feat. The rappers’ collaborative song, “The Scotts,” debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart. This marks Kid Cudi’s first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 (crazy!) and Scott’s third.

“The Scotts” also debuts at No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart and the Digital Song Sales chart. According to Billboard, the song has “ 42.2 million U.S. streams in the week ending April 30, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data and 67,000 downloads sold in the same span.”

Their Billboard debut comes a week after Scott premiered the song at the latter end of his three-day Astronomical virtual event, which started on Thursday (April 23), on Fortnite. The in-game concert was the game’s “largest in-game gathering yet” with 12 million concurrent players tuned in.
