Chart Check [Hot 100]: Latto Lands Her Biggest Debut Yet with ‘Big Energy’

Published: Thursday 4th Nov 2021 by Rashad

Latto‘s landed herself a winner with her latest single, ‘Big Energy.’

Officially released in late September after a live debut at the 2021 MTV VMAs, ‘Energy’ – which prominently samples the Tom Tom Club‘s 80’s hit ‘Genius of Love’ (most famously found aboard Mariah Carey‘s 1995 #1 hit, ‘Fantasy’) – has been garnering buzz across streaming and radio platforms since.

That buzz finally turned to a boil this week when the hot song finally cracked the Hot 100.  Look inside to see where it premiered:

With a #88 opening, ‘Big’ not only comes as the biggest debut of the rising rapper’s career but is also the highest rung she’s reached on the Hot 100 to date.  It tops her previous best, the Platinum-certified, Saweetie & Trina-assisted ‘B*tch from da Souf’ (which peaked at #95 in 2020).

What’s more, with growing chatter around ‘Energy,’ the tune shows promise of going even higher on the Hot 100 in the coming weeks – possibly becoming her first top 40 hit.  Until we find out for sure, look below to see who joins Latto on this week’s refreshed TGJ Chart Check.
