Tyler, The Creator Now Has His First Ever Song on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart
In May 2011, Tyler, The Creator released his first official album with Goblin. So it's amazing that six years later, he's finally earned his first ever song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with "Who Dat Boy."
The chart dated July 22 finds the lead single from his Scum Fuck Flower Boy album landing at No. 87 on the chart, and Tyler was ecstatic about the news on Twitter. "WOW I DONT THINK IVE EVER HAD A SONG ON THE CHARTS THATS HARD!" he wrote.
He has had one song chart on the Canadian Hot 100 ("Domo23") in 2013, but no other songs, so congrats to Tyler on a major career accomplishment. Now we wait for the album.
In case you missed it, we talked to the artist who did Tyler's album cover about how it came about and what some of the rapper's early ideas for the cover art were.
Tyler's dropped three songs from the album so far—"Who Dat Boy," "911/Mr. Lonely" with Frank Ocean and "Boredom."
