Amaarae & Moliy's 'Sad Girlz Luv Money' Remix Debuts On Billboard Hot 100
The blazing hot Ghanaian track hits yet another landmark.
Debuting at #80 on the Hot 100 charts this week, "Sad Girlz Luv Money (Remix)" marks both Amaarae and Moliy'sfirst entry into chart.
That's not the only accolade the track's gotten though, as it's also recently risen to #1 on the global Spotify Viral chart, #1 on TikTok U.S. Top Tracks chart, #1 on the Shazam US chart and #29 on the UK Singles chart.
While some publications are reporting that this makes Amaarae and Moliy the first Ghanaians to break into the Billboard Hot 100 we can't confirm that as 1970s GhanaianAfro-rock band Osibisa reportedly made it on those charts previously with their album Woyaya (#66).
