Camila Cabello Earns First No. 1 on Hot 100 with 'Havana'

This is a huge week for Camila Cabello as not only is she number one on the Billboard 200 albums chart with her debut solo album Camila, she also just went to number one on the Hot 100 singles chart!

The 20-year-old singer’s smash hit song “Havana” just went to number one after many weeks at number two. She is now the first artist to spend her first weeks at number one on both charts, simultaneously, since Beyonce did it in 2003.

“Havana” was just certified by the RIAA as a triple-platinum song and it has achieved the longest run at number one on Top 40 Radio by a female artist in five years.

Camila‘s album has gone to number one on iTunes in 100 countries, shattering the record for most number one iTunes peaks for a debut album by a male or female artist.

Congrats on all the success!

Cardi B Is Making Billboard History, Ties Record with The Beatles & Ashanti

The 25-year-old rapper currently has her song “No Limit” with G-Eazy and A$AP Rocky at number four, “MotorSport” with Migos and Nicki Minaj at number seven, and her solo song “Bodak Yellow” at number ten.

Cardi joins The Beatles and Ashanti as the only acts to ever achieve the cool accomplishment!

Julia Michaels, Khalid, & SZA Star in Billboard's Grammys Preview

Julia Michaels, Khalid, and SZA pose for the cover of Billboard‘s latest issue, which offers a preview at what we can expect at the 2018 Grammy Awards.

All three of the artists are safe bets for the Best New Artist category and there’s a good chance they might get nominations in other categories as well.

The three singers revealed who they’d take to the Grammys if they’re nominated:

SZA: “My mom and my nana, who both narrate my album. My granny is scared of flying. She said she would fly if I had a baby or got married. And the Grammys is like having a baby, so…”

Julia Michaels: “I’m going to bring my manager, Beka Tischker, with me. I couldn’t do this without her.”

Khalid: “I’d bring my best friend Carlos and my mom. After my dad passed away [when I was 7], my mom became my rock. She’s the one who inspired me — she sings as well. So when I sing, I’m like a mirror image of her. If the nomination comes, I want her to see the hard work that she [fostered in] my brain.”
