Post Malone Earns His First Top 10 Hit on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart
Post Malone is having one of the best years ever so far in 2017, and it's barely halfway over. After his Stoney album became certified platinum by the RIAA this past April, the "White Iverson" artist is earning his first top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for his "Congratulations" single.
The hit song, which also features Quavo of Migos and is produced by Metro Boomin, Frank Dukes and Lousi Bell, jumped from No. 13 to No. 10 on the charts as of this week, according to Billboard. Malone's "White Iverson" hit record of 2015 previously peaked on the Hot 100 charts at No. 14.
This feat on the charts is also the mark of a major Billboard milestone for Quavo as well, as the outlet says that "Congratulations" is the Atlanta rapper's third Hot 100 top 10 as a solo artist, with all of his entries being features on other artist's tracks. His first entry on the chart came on Drake's "Portland" record, which peaked at No. 9 earlier this year, while his second came with DJ Khaled's "I'm the One," which landed the top spot last month.
Malone is having a jam-packed year of success, but one of his highlights came a couple of weeks back when he was able to meet Allen Iverson and listen to the hit song dedicated to the veteran NBA player with him in person. The two snapped a photo together with the rapper raving about the long-awaited meeting in the caption.
