Seven years after first bursting on to the major Rap scene, GRAMMY-nominated rapper Joyner Lucas has finally found tenancy inside the Billboard Hot 100’s top 40 (as a leader) thanks to a little help from hitmaking friend J. Cole.
Much to fan delight, the two collaborated on the Hagan, LC, and Palaze-produced “Your Heart” (released in late September) – a heart-tugging jam that sees the emcees trade verses about the heartbreak that stems from failed romantic relationships.
And while it’s yet to be reported what larger project the single is attached to, what is clear is the song is resonating with Hip Hop fans – as evidenced by its promising #32 premiere on the Hot 100 this week. A career milestone for Lucas, the entry comes as the second top 40 hit of his career. However, unlike the #6-peaking, 2018 Eminem hit ‘Lucky You,’ ‘Heart’ is Lucas’ first top 40 placement as a lead act.
