Kanye West’s ‘Carnival’ Dethrones Beyonce, Setting New Record on Billboard Hot 100

Kanye West’s “Carnival” song surpassed Beyoncé’s “Texas Hold ‘Em” to become the number one single on the Hot 100 chart.

According to Billboard, the song was released on February 10 as part of the collaborative album Vultures 1 by Ye and Ty Dolla $ign on the former’s YZY label.

West’s fifth No. 1 single, “Carnival,” has earned him the distinction of being the only rapper to top the Hot 100 in three successive decades: the 2000s, 2010s and 2020s.

Luminate said that “Carnival” became the 1,165th No. 1 in the Hot 100’s 65-year history, with 33.7 million streams, 3.9 million radio airplay impressions, and 3,000 downloads for the March tracking week.

Since his track “Carnival” achieved No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, West has been criticizing Drake, Adidas, and others that collaborate with the garment firm.

In a deleted social media post, West praised Rich Ty Carti and his supporters for their unwavering support. This number one is for you. It is for people who refuse to be manipulated by the system.

“And f*** Adidas and everyone who works for or with them. Anyone who goes to school with someone whose parents work at Adidas. According to HipHopDX, despite attempts to destroy him, he currently has the world’s number one song.

He also criticized Drake for “taking” Durk to join his It’s All a Blur — Big as the What? tour. “That’s how I feel And it’s f*** Drake for taking Durk right at the beginning of the Vultures role [sic] out I’ll come back to yall if I think of more f*** you’s.”
