Artist of the Week: Migos

Following the release of 'Culture II', the three-piece group has made some histories such as becoming the first group to place 15 songs on Hot R'n'B/Hip-Hop Songs chart in the same week.

AceShowbiz - %cMigos% proves to the world that a hip-hop group can be successful too. Following the release of their highly-anticipated album "Culture II", the hip-hop trio has made some histories including tying rock legend %cThe Beatles% for the most simultaneous entries on Billboard Hot 100 among groups.

Thirteen songs off their latest album appeared on Hot 100. Additionally, the group is featured on %cGucci Mane%'s "I Get the Bag", which also appeared on the chart. In total, they have 14 songs on the chart.

Migos also made chart history on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, placing at least 15 songs on the chart in the same week. It made the Atlanta-based group become the first group and the third act after %cDrake% and %cThe Weeknd% to set the record.

And thanks to "Culture II", which debuted atop Billboard 200 chart, Migos ruled Billboard Artist 100 chart, becoming the first rap group to spend more than a single week at No. 1 on the chart. Migos first led the Artist 100 chart in February last year, when "Culture" arrived at No. 1 on Billboard 200 chart.

Talking about their success, the three-piece group admitted that they could spend money like sultans now. But it didn't make them satisfied, obviously, as they wanted to achieve more in the future.

"I want to sit down, actually, with Ellen [%cEllen DeGeneres%] on the couch. Sit down with %cJimmy Kimmel% on the couch, sit down with Fallon [%cJimmy Fallon%] or something. Really do the things that these real, real major stars doing," member %cQuavo% said. "I want to be part of everything. In high school, I played three sports, and in the industry I'm trying to play three sports as well."

Migos is currently gearing up for their performance on "Saturday Night Live". They will appear as the musical guest in the March 3 episode of the show.
