Travis Scott’s ‘Franchise’ Featuring M.I.A. and Young Thug Debuts #1 On Billboard Hot 100

Screen Shot 2020 10 07 at 9.32.55 AM

It’s official: Travis Scott is the “FRANCHISE” player.  

The Houston-bred superstar’s dominant 2020 continues with yet another milestone, as “Franchise,” his latest single featuring Young Thug and M.I.A., debuts at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 today. It is Travis’ third #1 debut on the Hot 100 in the past year, making him the first-ever artist to debut 3 consecutive songs #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 within a year period. 

Not only has Travis broken a record with his third solo no. 1 debut in a year’s time, (“Highest In The Room,” “THE SCOTTS”) but he ties Drake for the most chart-topping debuts for a male act in Hot 100 history, and becomes just the fifth overall act (Mariah Carey, Ariana Grande, and Justin Bieber) to achieve the feat. With just three studio albums under his belt, Travis Scott has become the most reliable hitmaker of his generation.  

“Franchise,” initially teased in July on Scott’s Apple Music show .WAV Radio, was thought to only feature Thug. However, following an attention-grabbing rollout that included original artwork from contemporary visual art legend George Condo, the song and video revealed an additional feature from M.I.A. 

The song follows Travis Scott’s instantly legendary collaboration with McDonald’s, in which he was the first person to receive his own menu item since Michael Jordan himself in 1992, furthering the connection.

Screen Shot 2020 09 25 at 9.07.34 AM

Action Bronson has released his new album Only For Dolphins via Loma Vista Recordings. Leading up to the release of his first full-length project since 2018 Bronson has made an impressive array of appearances, further cementing himself as a beloved rapper and renaissance man. Key appearances include an interview on Late Night with Seth Meyers, a freestyle with Funk Flex from a camping chair on the streets of Brooklyn, interviews and song debuts with Zane Lowe, Ebro, and Hot97, and a rare return appearance to Hot Ones. Last night Bronson kicked off the first day of Bonnaroo’s star-studded Virtual Roo-Ality live stream event with an intimate performance from his studio. He performed several songs including Only For Dolphins singles “Latin Grammys,” “Golden Eye” and Mr. Wonderful classics “Baby Blue” and “Terry.” 

Along with the album’s digital release, Bronson has shared the official music video for “Golden Eye,” a slow-burn reggae send-up produced by Budgie. The video is a journey through Bronson’s mind that ends in an enlightening soliloquy from a yoked dolphin.

MC Eiht Releases “Courted In” Video Featuring Dave East

unnamed 1 3

GEAH!!

For two decades MC Eiht has been one of hip-hop’s most recognizable voices in hip-hop; and undisputedly one of Compton’s finest originators and emcees.

A straight menace, MC Eiht burst onto the scene with Compton’s Most Wanted Music To Driveby.  Released just months after the LA Riots, Music To Driveby was a manifesto for the nihilism, frustration and anger that permeated the region and is universally hailed as a Gangsta Rap classic. Eiht’s follow up solo releases, We Come Strapped, was certified Gold and peaked at #1 on the Billboard charts and his sophomore solo project Death Threatz debuted at #3 on the Billboard Charts.

Lil Baby Becomes First Artist in 2020 to Go 2X Platinum With ‘My Turn’

Screen Shot 2020 09 11 at 6.42.57 PM

Lil Baby called his shot with My Turn, declaring 2020 as his own. The grammy-nominated rapper has seen a monumental year following the release of the lauded and chart-dominating album. Today, My Turn went RIAA-certified double platinum, making him the first and only artist of 2020 to reach that mark. The album is now the #1 selling and #1 steaming album in the US this year with 4 Billion streams to date. His catalog has reached 20 Billion streams globally and he was just named Vevo’s Top Performing Hip-Hop Artist of 2020. His powerful protest anthem “The Bigger Picture” which is one of, if not the most important song of the year has reached #1 on Urban Radio, his 7th #1 in the format. 

In celebration of reaching these career-defining milestones and as a “thank you” to his fans, Lil Baby has shared the music video for “Forget That” feat. Rylo Rodriguez. Rylo is signed to Lil Baby’s 4PF label, where Lil Baby plays a major role in shaping the careers of burgeoning new artists. 

Earlier this year, Lil Baby graced the cover of Rolling Stone, tied Prince and Paul McCartney for Billboard Hot 100 hits, saw his February #1 release of My Turn return to the top of the Billboard 200 three months later, and spent 5 weeks at #1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart (tying Taylor Swift for most weeks atop the list in 2020). With such a rapid rise and a relentless stream of critical and commercial hits, it’s clear that Lil Baby is one of the greatest and most important success stories in hip-hop. At 25, he has been one of the most dominant and critically acclaimed names in rap since his first release in 2017, and with just 3 years under his belt, it’s clear his run is far from over.
