DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One” Single Debuts At No. 1 On Billboard Chart
DJ Khaled is already winning on so many levels, but the executive producer has just hit a major milestone on the charts. The Major Key hitmaker's latest single, "I'm The One," which he dropped on April 28, has officially debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track features the likes of Chance The Rapper, Justin Bieber, Quavo and Lil Wayne.
Senior Vice President of Roc Nation, Lenny Santiago, who also helps manage Khaled with Jay Z, revealed the news on Twitter by unveiling the cover art with the No. 1 label.
"Another One!!! Only been out a week and it Debuted #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. @djkhaled @billboard," he wrote on social media.
Last week, Billboard reported "I'm The One" could potentially debut at the No. 1 slot in its first week of release, predicting it "could sell more than 150,000 downloads in the tracking week ending May 4." Being that it hit the milestone, this is now DJ Khaled and Chance the Rapper's first Hot 100 lead hit, and a first for Quavo as a solo artist.
The previously highest-charting single for Khaled was his 2011 single, "I'm on One," featuring Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne, which peaked at No. 11.
Khaled is currently gearing up to release his Grateful album sometime this summer, which sees his son, Asahd, as an executive producer. We don't have a tracklist for the project yet, but it does feature "I'm The One," as well as "Shining," which features Beyoncé and Jay Z.
