“The Weekend” has been inching its way through the Billboard Top 100. It was stuck at No. 3, but has officially made the final leap to No. 1 on the R&B charts, making SZA the first woman to hit No. 1 since Rihanna with “Needed Me” in 2016. According to Billboard, “The Weekend” rose to the top as a result of a huge push in digital sales that raked in 14,000 digital downloads last week, as well as showing up for the first time on R&B/Hip Hop Digital Songs Sales chart. The track not only climbed Billboard, but has also climbed the R&B/Hip Hop Streaming Songs and has stuck at R&B/Hip Hop Airplay chart at No. 8, which is as a result of SZA’s appearance on Saturday Night Live on Dec. 9. The single continues to shine as SZA debuted her Solange-directed visual last week and was also nominated for “Best R&B Performance” with a total of five nominations, making the songstress the Grammy’s most nominated. After the nomination announcement, SZA wrote,

“ I’m so overwhelmingly grateful for this strangeness, I’m so in awe of God’s plan…I just wanna live up to it. Thank you for considering me…thank you for bonding w my thoughts just the way they were. INFINITE GRATITUDE to the Recording Academy for this INCREDIBLE honor. I can’t even believe I’ve been considered. God bless every person who worked on this album or gave it an ear.”
