Hot 100: Future, Drake, & Tems Score Historic #1 with ‘Wait For U’

Published: Monday 9th May 2022 by Sam

Future has flown straight in at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with his latest single ‘Wait For U.’

Full story below…

The track, which is housed on the rapper’s new album ‘I Never Liked You,’ features Drake and Nigerian chanteuse Tems. Both of whom nab their tenth and first chart-toppers respectively.

For Future, ‘Wait’ becomes his second #1 on the coveted count. Interestingly, his only other track to achieve the feat was the Drake-led ‘Way 2 Sexy’ – which also launched in pole position last September.

The #1 launch of ‘Wait’ sees Tems make history by becoming only the second Nigerian-born artist to hit the top spot of the Hot 100 in its history. Her ‘Essence’ collaborator Wizkid serves as the first following his appearance on Drake’s ‘One Dance’ in 2016.

Furthermore, Future joins Drizzy as the only Hip-Hop artist in history to debut a song and album at #1 on the Hot 100 and Billboard 200 simultaneously after hit #1 on the Billboard 200.

So, how did the song manage the feat? Here are how the numbers stack up:

  • 40.2 million streams
  • 7.9 million all-format radio
  • 6,400 digital downloads

    The way the black girls are doing their thing

    Ari Lennox
    Summer walker

    It’s either u have IT or you dont.

    normani is not a star and that’s why her career cant take of after 6 years of going solo

    This ugly dirty black s.l.a.vè was hyped by beyonce and Rihanna and janet

    She has worked with the best of the best in the industry but still her career is stagnant

    Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100: #15(new) Fair, @Normani.

    Mind u, the a.p.e showed her crusty rectum on tiktok and she still TANKED hard

    Shes getting dropped this year. Mark my words. I just cant wait. Lol

    Tems’ original song ‘higher’ is a much better listen but if it wasn’t for this song, I wouldn’t know it so…

  9. Bravo!! May 10, 2022

    The song flew to number 1 because of Drake & Tems. Tems about to get paid though. The beat & hook is from Tems song, Higher.
