Chart Check [Hot 100]: DaBaby Nabs First Solo Hit Since 2021 with ‘Shake Sumn’

Published: Wednesday 24th May 2023 by Rashad

Da last couple of years have admittedly not been da best to embattled rapper DaBaby.

When not navigating legal obstacles for brawls and baby mama drama, the GRAMMY nominee (born Jonathan Kirk) was coping with the fallout of homophobic remarks he made at a music festival in summer 2021.

The impact of the negative press saw endorsement opportunities, concert ticket sales, and streams of his music tank – leaving the once top-selling emcee at the bottom of the charts for most of 2022.

Just when it seemed all was over for the North Carolina hitmaker, the path to redemption seemingly came via the Tik Tok-fueled embrace of his latest single, ‘Shake Sumn.’ So much so, the tune is shaking up charts and rising fast.

Details inside.

‘Shake Sumn,’ found aboard Kirk’s May 5-released mixtape ‘Call Da Fireman,’ is heating up the Billboard Hot 100 just in time for summer.

Premiering on last week’s edition of the tally at #92, the song hopped a whopping 18 spots on this week’s print to #74 – marking the highest unassisted placement he’s had since peaking at #50 with ‘Red Light Green Light‘ in summer 2021.

On pace to rise even higher next week, could the Charlie Heat-produced cut be signaling a resurgence for the once counted-out star?

Until we find out for sure, look below to see who joins Jonathan on this week’s TGJ Chart Check: Hot 100.
