Doja Cat has ended rap's long draught on the Billboard Hot 100.
This week, Doja's new track "Paint The Town Red" will become the first number-one rap song since Nicki Minaj's "Super Freaky Girl" topped the chart last summer.

Last month, Travis Scott's Utopia bundled its way to becoming the first rap album to top the charts in over a year.
Is commercial rap back, or is this just Doja and Travis specific?
