Rumors about his personal life aside, it’s pretty good to be Travis Scott these days.  His Astroworld: Wish You Were Here arena tour is bringing in big bucks, and his former #1 hit “Sicko Mode” has set a new Billboard chart record.

According to Billboard, “Sicko Mode” is the first hip-hop song in the history of the Hot 100 to have spent at least 30 weeks in the top 10. In its 30th week, it currently sits at #10.

In the 60-year history of the chart, only seven songs in all have managed that feat, but all the others are pop hits, like Ed Sheeran‘s “Shape of You” and Maroon 5‘s “Girls Like You.”  Both of those songs hold the record for the most weeks in the top 10 — 33 — though “Sicko Mode” could tie that record if it hangs in there for a few more weeks.

Meanwhile, Billboard also reports that La Flame’s Astroworld tour has so far grossed $34.3 million in its first three months.  That means it’s already out-earned similar arena tours by other hip-hop stars in the past two years, including treks by J. Cole, Post Malone, Future, Childish Gambino and Chance the Rapper.  Only Kendrick Lamar‘s DAMN tour earned more: $40.7 million.

The numbers have yet to be tallied for the last 21 shows of the tour, which wraps March 26.  If he ends up earning more than $50 million, he’ll have out-grossed Kanye West’s Saint Pablo tour, which took in $48.7 million before canceling a month’s worth of dates.
