(AllHipHop News) Desiigner’s smash hit “Panda” is now the #1 song in the country. The Brooklyn rapper’s debut single leads the Hot 100 chart. At just 18 years and 11 months, Desiigner has become the youngest male artist to hit #1 in 9 years.
R&B star Chris Brown was 18 years and six months old when he led the Hot 100 with “Kiss Kiss” featuring T-Pain on Nov. 24, 2007. Desiigner is the youngest artist – regardless of gender – to have a #1 since Lorde’s “Royals” on Oct. 12, 2013. She was 16 years and 11 months old at the time.
Desiigner is also the first rap artist to reach the pinnacle of the Hot 100 with a debut single since Iggy Azalea. The Australian rhymer’s “Fancy” featuring Charli XCX landed at #1 on June 7, 2014.
A music video for “Panda” and a mixtape titled Trap History Month are on the way from Desiigner. He recently premiered snippets of his second single “Pluto” at the SXSW Festival in March.
