Sexyy Red was buzzing with excitement after being named one of Billboard’s hottest female rappers right now.

Today, Billboard revealed its list of the hottest female rappers in the game, and Sexyy Red snagged the number two spot, just behind Nicki Minaj. This comes as no surprise given her phenomenal breakout year in 2023.

Sexyy Red catapulted to fame with her mixtape ‘Hood Hottest Princess’ and a slew of high-profile collaborations. Just last month, she dropped a new mixtape that debuted in the top 20 of the Billboard 200. With this momentum, her inclusion in Billboard’s top 10 seemed almost inevitable.

Overjoyed, Red took to Instagram to share her reaction, writing, ‘SHOUT OUT TO US WE WINNIN 🤩🎀 BIG THANKS TO @billboard.’ She followed it up with another comment, ‘It’s not about the rank we top 10 dats coo wimme 🤷🏽‍♀️ stay blessed.’

Among other big names on the list are Flo Milli, JT, Latto, GloRilla, Cardi B, Ice Spice, Doja Cat, and Megan Thee Stallion. Being in such illustrious company only highlights Red’s stellar rise in the rap industry.

Red’s new mixtape ‘In Sexyy We Trust,’ features another collaboration with Drake. Their track ‘U My Everything,’ which humorously includes Drake rapping over the viral ‘BBL Drizzy’ beat, debuted at number 44 on the Hot 100 this week. This marks their second collaboration following last year’s hit ‘Rich Baby Daddy’ from Drake’s album ‘For All The Dogs.’

With her skyrocketing success and a place among the top names in the industry, Sexyy Red has plenty to celebrate. Her reaction sums it up perfectly: it’s not just about the rank, but the recognition of talent and hard work.
