Quavo, "W O R K I N M E"

The song debuts at No. 32 on Streaming Songs following the release of its music video.

For the first time, Quavo scores a song on Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart completely solo, as “WORKIN  ME” debuts at No. 32 on the Sept. 8-dated ranking.

The Migos member, who has appeared on Streaming Songs 19 times with his group -- scoring one No. 1 with the 10-week reign of “Bad and Boujee” in the process -- now has nine entries on Streaming Songs to his name as a solo artist. However, the first eight either came as a featured artist (such as his lone solo No. 1 as part of DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One” alongside Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne) or as one of multiple top-billed artists on a charting song (see: “Bigger > You” with 2 Chainz and Drake).

“WORKIN ME,” meanwhile, is solely credited to Quavo. The track debuts with 13.1 million streams, according to Nielsen Music. The song’s 76 percent boost in streams (it previously accumulated 7.4 million) is thanks to the first full streaming tracking week for its official music video, which was released Aug. 22.

Concurrently, the song vaults 96-52 on the all-format, sales-, streaming- and airplay-based Billboard Hot 100, earning the chart’s distinction of greatest streaming gainer.

“WORKIN ME” also hits new highs on multiple airplay charts, including No. 32 on R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay, No. 21 on Rap Airplay, No. 30 on Mainstream Hip-Hop/R&B Songs and No. 33 on Rhythmic Songs.

The track was released in conjunction with two other solo Quavo songs, “LAMBTALK” and “BUBBLEGUM,” on Aug. 10.
