Chart Check [Hot 100]: Latto Lands First Top 40 Hit with ‘Big Energy’

Published: Tuesday 25th Jan 2022 by Rashad

It looks like Latto‘s hit the jackpot with her new single, ‘Big Energy,’ and this week’s winning numbers are 38.

The Dr. Luke-produced bop, which prominently samples Tom Tom Club‘s 80’s hit ‘Genius of Love’ (also found aboard Mariah Carey‘s timeless classic ‘Fantasy’), was already a standout in the rapper’s growing discography when it entered the Hot 100 as her highest debut yet (as we reported here).

Reaching an even higher Hot 100 height this week, ‘Big’ made a big splash in the chart’s top 40 – not only marking her highest placement to date (at #38) but also the first time Latto’s seen her name printed in the hit list’s upper half.

Look inside to see who joins her on this week’s TGJ Chart Check.

    Top 40 in the country overall.

    Not the Rnb/rap list

    Congrats- she winning

  7. True Tea January 25, 2022

    The good thing….Latto is easily replaceable. So whenever the Industry get bored of her, they can throw her away without anyone noticing.

    Get Money Dr. Luke aka the Bedwench bill collector.

    Wow Dua Lipa – Levitating 63 weeks still in the Top 20. No wonder it was the #1 song of 2021. The losers, haters and doubters can go S U C K it because the hate towards this girl is real. It baffles me this song did not go to #1. She should have submitted the solo version to the Grammys. The song is truly a HIT 🔥🔥🔥 Do it Dua. Cold Heart…steady in the Top 10
