Blueface Scores First Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 With “Thotiana”
Blueface reaches a major milestone in his blossoming career as a rap star. On this week's chart dated March 9, it's revealed that his breakout single, "Thotiana," has climbed it's way up from no. 13 to no. 9—making for the L.A. native's very first top 10 single.
The track has been steadily gaining traction since its release in late 2018, and it's since gotten the remix treatment from everyone from Nicki Minaj to Cardi B, YG, Desiigner, Young M.A. and more.
In an Instagram post he uploaded Monday night (March 4), the Cash Money West rapper reacted to the Billboard news, sharing a picture of the chart position and adding gold and platinum CD emojis. Elsewhere in the top 10, Post Malone appears twice—alongside Swae Lee at No. 4 for their Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse collab, "Sunflower," and at No. 8 with "Wow." J. Cole is also there, as "Middle Child" jumps from No. 11 to No. 5. Travis Scott's former No. 1, "Sicko Mode," is currently at No. 10.
In other recent news, Blueface was charged with felony gun possession after police showed up to a spot where the rapper and his crew were hanging last month and reportedly caught the 22-year-old with a weapon. He spent one night in jail and was released on $35,000 bail, but his manager, Wack 100, maintains that Blue is innocent.
