Latto Becomes First Rapper In 2023 To Score No. 1 Song On Billboard Hot 100


The ATL rep joins Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion in a very exclusive Billboard club.

Latto has a lot to celebrate this week. Her “Seven” collaboration with South Korean singer Jung Kook is the most popular song in America.

“Seven” debuted at No. 1 on the most recent Billboard Hot 100, giving both Jung Kook and Latto their first Hot 100 chart-topper as soloists. Jung Kook previously made it to the pinnacle of the chart six times as a member of BTS.

Latto is also the first rapper to reach No. 1 this year. Previously, The Rap Game winner’s best showing on the Hot 100 was a No. 3 placement for her 2021 breakout hit, “Big Energy.”

In addition, Latto becomes just the third female rapper to top the Billboard Global 200 chart. Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s collaboration, “WAP,” became the first-ever No. 1 on the Billboard Global 200 in 2021.

Jung Kook’s “Seven” featuring Latto pulled in 21.9 million streams and more than 153,000 sales in its first week of release. The track also landed at No. 2 on the Digital Song Sales chart and No. 4 on the Streaming Songs chart.

“Seven” had already broken several Spotify records. The Circkut and Andrew Watt-produced single earned the biggest streaming debut for a rapper in the history of Spotify.

Last month, Latto also made it to No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 thanks to “Put It On Da Floor Again” featuring Cardi B. The remix of “Put It on da Floor” reached the Top 10 of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart as well.

Latto linked up with Jay Rock and Anderson .Paak for the “Too Fast (Pull Over)” single, which dropped last week. Lola Brooke’s “Don’t Play With It (Remix)” also featured the RCA recording artist as well as Yung Miami.
