21 Savage’s “Bank Account” Is His Highest-Charting Song to Date
If you're just now getting into 21 Savage, we wouldn't blame you for thinking he can't miss, because lately, he hasn't. According to Forbes, his Issa Album single "Bank Account" has become his highest-charting song to date, landing at No. 33 on Billboard's Hot 100. His next highest-charting song was the Metro Boomin and Future-assisted "X," which peaked at No. 36.
"Bank Account," which is produced by 21 himself, sees him at his best, or very close to it. With its simple, slightly ominous sounding instrumental and the Atlanta rapper's jarringly matter-of-fact way of discussing the taking of girlfriends, money and lives, it's a cool, calm and instantly catchy hit.
"Yeah dog I'm for real, dog (21)/Straight up out the 6, now got a house in the Hills, dog (21)/Wanna see a body, nigga? Get you killed, dog (wet)/Wanna tweet about me, nigga? Get you killed, dog (wet)/Killed dog, I'm a real dog, you a lil' dog (21)" he spits on the track without even the slightest fluctuation in tone or urgency.
This news pops up a short while after it was revealed Issa Album landed at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart, moving 77,000 equivalent album units in its first week of release. The only person who did better is JAY-Z, whose 4:44 album moved 222,000 equivalent album units last week.
JAY-Z also had nine new songs debut on the Hot 100 chart, but only one track ("The Story of O.J.") charted higher than "Bank Account."
