This is the first time the song has found its way into the upper echelon of the chart in its 17-week history.

It is no secret that the music industry sees a lot of turnover between popular artists and it is a difficult task to stick around. However, Jack Harlow may stand to test the odds. Thanks to a dedicated work ethic, Jack has remained consistent since signing his record deal. Releasing three projects since 2018, Loose, Confetti (2019), and Sweet Action, his most recent effort in 2020. Furthermore, looking at the Kentucky rappers’ body of work, he has consistently dropped an album or mixtape every year. With a focus on the future and making hit records, this is an artist to watch!
