Before the latest September 10-dated rankings, Philadelphia rapper Fridayy had not appeared on a Billboard chart, but he is now a Billboard Hot 100 hitmaker.
According to Luminate, the title track from DJ Khaled’s new album God Did, which features Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, John Legend, and Fridayy, debuted at No. 17 on the Hot 100 with 17.1 million US streams, 1.4 million radio airplay audience impressions, and 8,000 downloads sold in its first week (Aug. 26-Sept. 1).
As previously reported, the album debuts as DJ Khaled’s fourth Billboard 200 No. 1 with 107,500 equivalent album units.
Fridayy gets his debut Hot 100 entry, while Lil Wayne gets his 183rd (the third-most in the chart’s history). Jay-Z (105), Rick Ross (53), DJ Khaled (47), and John Legend (22) all add to their impressive totals. The song, published by We The Best/Epic Records, is presently ranked third and sixth on the multi-metric Hot Rap Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, respectively, and fifth on the all-genre Streaming Songs survey.
Fridayy (actual name: Francis Leblanc) co-produced “God Did” with DJ Khaled, STREETRUNNER, and Tarik Azzouz, and has worked with Chris Brown, Rae Sremmurd, and Wiz Khalifa, among others. Brown’s “Till The Wheels Fall Off,” featuring Lil Durk and Capella Grey, and “Need You Right Here,” both co-written by Fridayy, peaked at Nos. 12 and 23 on the Hot R&B Songs chart in July.
