Ariana Grande Congratulates Travis Scott on 'Sicko Mode' Going No. 1 Over 'Thank U, Next': 'So F--ing Dope'
After imploring his fans to help make it happen, Travis Scott indeed notched his first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 Monday (Dec. 3) with "Sicko Mode." With La Flame dethroning Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next," the pop singer decided to show Scott some love for his latest accomplishment.
"So fucking dope. congratulations," she replied to the Cactus Jack frontman on Twitter with a black heart emoji. Scott then wrote back minutes later, "U know it blood gang shit."
Grande also answered one of her fan accounts who hoped that she would throw shade in the Houston native's direction. "if an artist you stanned were that close to having their first # 1 and they did all that they could in their power to get it (and they got it), you'd be celebrating. It's an exciting feeling."
The 26-year-old Scott has been celebrating his first No. 1 with fans throughout the day, and he took some time to put his feelings into words for Billboard.
"I don't know how I'm writing this right now … it's so many emotions. Just super-thankful to all the fans and supporters. Me and Drake been working to make something so crazy for the kids. It's dope that one of our illest collaborations just went No. 1," he excitedly penned. "The whole idea when we made the song was to go 'sicko mode' … and what's more sicko mode than going No. 1?!"
