Chart Check: Fetty Wap Makes History On Hot 100 This Week

Published: Tuesday 28th Jul 2015 by Rashad

Like The Weeknd last week, Fetty Wap has taken command of the Hot 100’s upper rankings with not one, not two, but three entries!

While his breakthrough hit ‘Trap Queen’ is still getting a royal reception at radio, the New Jersey-native has sailed two other numbers – ‘679’ and ‘My Way’ – right into the top 20.  The latter has also made its way into the history books with a huge 87-7 leap (the largest leap since Katy Perry pounced from #85 to #2 with 2013’s ‘Roar’).  His entries give him three other distinct honors:  4th artist in 2015 to have two concurrent top 10s, first male rapper (as a leading act) to notch two concurrent top 10s since Lil Wayne in 2011, and first male rapper to have three concurrent top 20s since Eminem in 2013.

But, even with all of his chart glory, it wasn’t enough to dethrone OMI‘s ‘Cheerleader’ which is celebrating its third consecutive week on the chart’s perch.

Get the full chart check below:

    5 black male artists in the top ten wow. That’s a good look.

    • Biting Truth July 28, 2015

      Yeah, but they’re all either cheesy or odd. No thanks. Where are the COOL black dudes? These silly swagfags and corny hipsters might as well be white.

      • Walker July 28, 2015

        Basically this. Alert me when BLACK MUSIC returns, not just black faces used to prop POP music because people finally got tired of looking at Bieber and Katy Perry.

      • XoMoDe July 28, 2015

        IRL. What in the hell is a “Fetty Wrap” supposed to be anyway? Sounds like a chicken club at Wendy’s or something. This is a shallow victory. Most of these guys don’t make real R&B or real Hip Hop. It’ll be time to celebrate when real G’s like Biggie/Pac/Snoop/R. Kelly/Jodeci rule the charts again. Until then you can keep that “urbanpop” and “PBR&B” ish.

  2. Legend B July 28, 2015

    Slay Fetty Wap! Im also liking how the top ten has added a lot of color!

  3. Keri Qween July 28, 2015

    Oh now yall like Fetty Wap? I remember when I first had him as my avi people was trying to make jokes about his eye and s***. That’s been BAE! He has hits though. My Way is my s***, the one with Drake is better though, Drakes verse SLAYYYSS yasss

    • lol July 28, 2015

      I can’t believe you’re Slayonce 🙁

      • Keri Qween July 28, 2015

        No Im not. I hate Slayonce , we went back and forth all the time. Why would I be arguing with myself? LOL. Slayonce is a pressed troll and the f** was trolling under my name. If you go back and read the other posts you will see the moderators saying that Slayonce was trolling as slay_hive and other people . It also made an account a few weeks back trolling under my name to make me and Mark look like the same person. I told yall that wasn’t me when that happened too but believe what you want .

      • lol July 28, 2015

        That’s why I said I can’t believe, I knew that h** was fake from the get go I’m glad none of the Navy claimed it

    • lol July 28, 2015

      Congrats to Dancing Like we are making love for just b early cracking the hot 100,hope it rises

  4. JOHNVIDAL July 28, 2015

    Yeah well, today any song can enter the chart. Years ago only radio releases could, so an artist could only have one song or hit at once (except for when two consecutive songs were very successful and they could have them both in the chart, the previous single and the new one, but that´s it).
    That´s why we have people like Nicki Minaj supposedly breaking records for entries LOL

    • Barb-wire July 28, 2015

      She does break records, stay pressedT Sis.

      • Legend B July 28, 2015

        Yessss he stays pressed kii kii

    • Selenator *Good For You* July 28, 2015

      Back then it was much easier to get a hit with payola too. Charts were largely based off radio alone. Now you can be #1 on radio and not even top 10 on the Hot 100 if your streams and sales are poor.

      • JOHNVIDAL July 28, 2015

        Please!!!! Now it is easier. Release 20 singles to itunes every year and probably one will stick and make it to #1 just because of first week sales of those .99 dollars digital singles:)

  5. Jamie July 28, 2015

    He makes music that feels good. I’m all for it. I gotta cop his album!!!

  6. Gee July 28, 2015

    Glad to see the hot 100 be filled with artists of color.

    • african music lover July 28, 2015

      hahahahahaha….she is slowly fading!!i mean look at the “vevo queen” barely cracking 40mil free views on youtube with her third video!!!

      • datreddone23 July 28, 2015

        Yea its age restricted as well. But with almost 7 bill and 17 million subscribers she’s unbothered as The Queen of Vevo. Worry about Taylor snatching Beys instagram crown as she’s bout too soon!

  8. Barb-wire July 28, 2015

    Weird Wap is scary AF! and basic shitt. But congrats tho.

  9. Keri Qween July 28, 2015

    • Pu$$iePopstress July 28, 2015

      hmmm….

      one was premiered in times square with promotion…one was unexpectedly released on an album with 13 other videos.

      you do the math.

      • Ugh July 28, 2015

        Worry about Kelly
        Btw nice screen name dirty laundry

      • Keri Qween July 28, 2015

        @King B

        That’s not what Forbes says you fat black f**. They have your overrrated fave at $250 million. Where does the h.i.v. get $500 million? I think that was her estimated networth before all of those lawsuits kiiiii

        @Absolved

        Successful songwriter, irrelevant b****. Keri has penned many successful songs, multi-platinum songs. Adding one word? LOL! You have her confused with your thieving fave, Keri was a member of a songwriting group named the Clutch who probably wrote some of your favorite songs.

        When will THIEVINGonce? You still didn’t answer the question in your essay.

      • Keri Qween July 28, 2015

        @Absolved

        Successful songwriter is right f**. Keri has been making her coins and will continue to do so. Are you mad? Adding ONE WORD? KIII. You have Keri confused with your thieving fave. NOT A beyonce fan talking about anyone adding one word to a song..the IRONY. Keri was part of a songwriting group called the Clutch. They probably wrote some of your favorite songs.

        When will THIEVINGonce? You didn’t answer the question in your poor essay.

    • Legend B July 28, 2015

      Not LMFAO having a longer career than Miss Floperi Baby kii kii…..I can’t ????????????????????????

      • Keri Qween July 28, 2015

        ^Who is this unknown f**? Keri will always have a career, she is a successful songwriter. Something your illiterate fave can’t claim to be, the only thing she’s good for is shaking her ass and making hood anthems for ghetto bums like yourself

      • Legend B July 28, 2015

        Legend B is somebody who will dragggggggggggggg your shiit stain teeth to Hell ???????????????????? and Back Trollin Biitch. The only career Miss Floperi Baby will have is performing in Neighborhood block parties, until her 3min of fame is up.

      • B. Hill July 28, 2015

        Wake me when Keri manages to write herself a “successful” hit that allows her to no longer have to greyhound buses to play gigs at half empty clubs. LOL

      • Keri Qween July 28, 2015

        @Legend B

        You still just look like an irrelevant basic b**** to me trying to get some shine but you can get some b**** don’t try me.I usually don’t entertain the help but I’ll give you some of my time today UGLY. Worry about your fave and her multiple songwriting lawsuits, how’s that lawsuit for XO going? No wonder her networth was reduced by Forbes, those lawsuits must have put a dent in her bank account

      • Keri Qween July 28, 2015

        @B. Hill

        Wake me up when your thieving fave writes a multi platinum hit like Keri

      • Legend B July 28, 2015

        Fat Ass Hard Face biitch im not lookin for any shine biitch, you’re the thirsty hoee just like Miss Floperi Baby. Can’t that biitch take the hint. We’re no buying her albums kii. And Forbes hunnie….lmfaooo…. The Queen is worth over 500 million, while Floperi is the one losing her networth, since she can’t sale that Tragic A*** Music of hers ????????????????????????????????????????

      • Legend B July 28, 2015

        *not*

      • Absolved July 28, 2015

        “Successful songwriter,” my ass. Where are these successful songs at? When was the last time Keri Hilson wrote a “successful” song and who was it for? Please. Just because she may have been allowed to add a sentence to “The Way I Are” half a decade ago doesn’t make her Diane Warren, okay. Keri is somewhere crawling around of the floor of an apartment that has a eviction notice on the door wondering when Timbaland will finally reply to her texts. She’s basically on the same level as Teairra Mari these days. Does Keri even have a record deal anymore, or has she been reduced to putting mixtapes on Tumblr? Sad. BTW I don’t like that you made slight Keri like that, because she’s pretty and charming enough (in a super generic, no-“IT”-factor sort of way)…but come on now, kid. Don’t put her in the line of fire if you’re actually a fan because taking a shot at her is a little TOO easy. Using her to try and slight Beyonce is like trying to fight a missile with a twig. Both you and her will continue to lose every time.

      • Legend B July 28, 2015

        Lmao Thats what im talkin about. This dumb biitch is trying to come for The Queen, when the thing stans for Big Bird ????????????????????????????????????. You’re suppose to be this successful songwriter but you can’t write a hit to dig your career up ????????????????????????????????

      • Keri Qween July 28, 2015

        @Legend B

        500 MILLION? KIII. That’s not what Forbes says. They have her at $250 million. I think 500 million was her estimated networth before all of those lawsuits kiiiii

      • Legend B July 28, 2015

        Biitch you mad Big Bird is worth a box of ceral ????????????????????????. Big Bird must saw the future when she released No Hoees Allowed. Cause thats what the buying public said about her. That lesser long neck hoee has been Dismissed kii kii.

  10. Legend B July 28, 2015

    Not BEYONCE the album selling more than Keri’s whole discography ????????????????????????????????????????

  11. ratedxxx July 28, 2015

    I’ve never heard any of his songs( I don’t listen to the radio)

    but there something kinda cute about him…..

    good for him..

  12. ratedxxx July 28, 2015

    I’m sorry if you’re going to use an album to drag somebody’s elses favs…I wouldn’t use the dumbest, stupidest album ever…

    beyonce the album was and still is her worst album..

    at least use 4..it had more substance..it showed growth…
    even the “I am, never going to be a legend” album had more substance than that crappy yonce album

    • Keri Qween July 28, 2015

      Exactly Beyonce the album was over sexualized trash

      • Legend B July 28, 2015

        Kii Trash = Miss Floperi Baby Career. The buying public throwed that biitchs career in the trash, where it will stay ????????????????????????????????????????????

    • B. Hill July 28, 2015

      Your mom is a 75 year old transvestite prostitute who can’t get any work. Worry about that, not Beyonce’s album that made more money than 20 of you combined.

    • Legend B July 28, 2015

      Kii Rated Hoee u sound mad durrling kii kii. Many music critics called it her best and the best of the decade. Why would we listen to a biitch without a pot to p*** in ????????????????????????????????????

    • Stavdash July 28, 2015

      That nasty attitude of yours has to be the result of something personal and unfortunate. The nastier the online attitude, the more effed up you know their life is behind the screen. So instead of getting mad at the acrid comments posted by people like RatedXXX, recognize how much of a mess she has to be because of that disposition, pity her and be glad you’re not her! Get well soon, hun.

      • Legend B July 28, 2015

        And biitch who and the hell are u tallking about?? My attitude nor my life is fuccked up. U see my face biitch ????????????????????????????????????????????????????. Im Good Good. So hope your lame a*** outta here biitch.

      • Legend B July 29, 2015

        Hopp

  13. BeyKnowlesBest July 28, 2015

    He’s so cute and I love his personality

  14. Legend B July 28, 2015

    Miss Floperi Baby is a Lesser Biitch who will remain in her ⛺⛺⛺⛺ while The Queen remain in her ????????????????????????

  15. Selenator *Good For You* July 28, 2015

    Good For You is stabilizing without any promo at all. It’s gaining in streams and on radio as well as staying steady on iTunes so expect a return to the top 10. Poor Screami still can’t crack the top 20 with microwavable generic pop.

  16. CocoisChanel July 30, 2015

    Black artist killing it! ????????
