Two Playboi Carti Songs Debut on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart
Update 2 (May 23, 9:23 p.m. EST):
Carti's climbing up the charts every week. For the week ending June 3, "Magnolia" hits No. 55 on the Hot 100 chart and "wokeuplikethis*" moving up four spots to No. 76.
Update (May 16, 11:16 a.m. EST):
Both songs have taken a jump on the charts for the week ending May 27, with "wokeuplikethis*" hitting No. 80 and "Magnolia" jumping up to No. 63.
You had to know this was gonna happen. Just weeks after Playboi Carti's self-titled debut album dropped, two of the biggest songs from the project have debuted on the Billboard Hot 100 chart—"Magnolia" (obviously) at No. 91 and "wokeuplikethis*" featuring Lil Uzi Vert at No. 100. Hear them both below.
"Magnolia" has quickly taken off as the fan favorite from the LP, in no small part thanks to Carti's catchy "In New York I milly rock, hide it in my sock" refrain. "wokeuplikethis*" actually dropped the same night "Lookin" was released, but it looks like the former has been getting a little more traction amongst listeners.
Now we wait for the "Magnolia" video. Congrats to Cash Carti, Pierre Bourne and the team. If you missed it, read our interview with Carti's superstar producer.
