At the end of March, Desiigner's energetic single "Panda" was at No. 72 at the Hot 100. The following week, the song made a huge jump to No. 33. After that, the track's rapid rise continued unabated, and today "Panda" dethroned Rihanna's "Work," claiming the top spot on the Hot 100. According to Billboard, it's also No. 1 on the Streaming Songs chart and the Hot Rap/R&B songs chart. The last rapper to reach the pinnacle of the Hot 100 with a debut single was Iggy Azalea.


Drake's "One Dance" made strides this week as well, pushing up to No. 3. Check out the whole top ten breakdown here.
