Travis Scott is back on top.
The Houston rapper earns his fourth No. 1 as “Franchise” rockets to the top of the Billboard Hot 100. The single, which features Young Thug and M.I.A., becomes his third No. 1 debut on the Hot 100 in the past year, making him the first artist to debut three consecutive songs at No. 1 on the Hot 100 within a year.
He previously topped the chart with “Sicko Mode” (Dec. 2018), “Highest in the Room” (Oct. 2019), and “The Scotts,” his collaboration with Kid Cudi, which began at No. 1 in May 2020.
He now ties Drake for the most chart-topping debuts for a male act in Hot 100 history, and becomes just the fifth overall act to achieve the feat following Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber, and Drake.
Taking to Instagram, Travis celebrated the milestone. “TO THE FANSSS … FUCK THAT!!! YALL FAM TO THE FAM I LOVE EVERY ONE OF LOVE YALL. YALL ARE THE BEST EVER. NOTHING WIT OUT YALL,” he said before thanking Thug. “THE TOP AINT LONELY ALL MY NIGGAS WIT ME AND Jeff @thuggerthugger1 BEEN BLEEDIN FOR 7 YEARS NOW. FROM OUR FIRST TOUR TO TRAPPIN OUT DA SPOT.”
He now plans to return to the studio to work on his next album, which may be titled Utopia. “GOING TO GO COOK UP AND BUILD THESE WALLS FOR UTOPIA. SEE YOU GUYS SOON,” he added.
M.I.A. earns her first Hot 100 No. 1 with “Franchise,” while Young Thug lands his second following “Havana,” his 2018 collaboration with Camila Cabello.
