Amaarae & Moliy’s ‘Sad Girlz Luv Money’ Remix Debuts On Billboard Hot 100

Buzzing Ghanaian artist
Amaarae continues her incredible run as her and Moliy‘s remix of “Sad Girlz Luv Money” featuring US-Colombian Kali Uchis has broken into the Billboard Hot 100 Chart.

Debuting at #80 on the Hot 100 charts this week, “Sad Girlz Luv Money (Remix)” marks both
Amaarae and Moliy‘s first 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).

OkayAfrica recently spoke with Amaarae for our Decoded series after the release of her debut album, The Angel You Don’t Know. She broke down hit songs like “Trust Fund Baby”, “Jumping Ship” with Kojey Radical as well as her Southern rap musical influences. She also mentions being inspired by an op-ed that she penned for OkayAfrica in 2019, and her mother’s role in helping her coin the album title The Angel You Don’t Know.
