Rich The Kid’s “New Freezer” Featuring Kendrick Lamar Enters Billboard Hot 100
Rich The Kid collects a big-time W for himself and his Rich Forever imprint. On Tuesday (Feb. 6), Billboard revealed that his Kendrick Lamar-assisted 2017 single, "New Freezer," had debuted at No. 75 in Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
This is Rich's first song to ever enter the Billboard Hot 100. The significance of the accomplishment wasn't lost on the Atlanta-based rapper, who tweeted about the feat shortly after news broke. "That’s a blessing!!," he wrote. "Coming for #1!"
With its electric instrumental and the equally dynamic flows of K. Dot and Rich The Kid, it's not actually all that surprising to see the track's finally made its way to the Hot 100. Now, Rich will look to repeat that same success throughout the rest of 2018.
Speaking with XXL, Rich, who promises his album will be the "greatest album of 2018," said K. Dot foresaw the success of "New Freezer."
"He was excited about it when he heard the record," Rich recalled. "He was like, 'Everybody is gonna listen to this everywhere,' and he was right! A lot of people really didn’t expect for me to have a record with Kendrick, but I proved them wrong. It's not easy to get Kendrick on a record, so it was a huge deal for me to have him featured on the song."
