Jack Harlow has proven once again that he is one of the hottest rappers in the game, as his hit single “Lovin On Me” has returned to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The song, which features vocals from R&B singer Summer Walker, first topped the chart in early December 2023, before being dethroned by Adele’s “Easy On Me”.

However, thanks to a surge in streaming and radio airplay, “Lovin On Me” has reclaimed the throne on Monday (January 8), making it the first song to have two separate runs at No. 1 since Olivia Rodrigo’s “Drivers License” in 2021.

With this achievement, Jack Harlow has also made Billboard history by becoming the second rapper ever to have a No. 1 song on the Hot 100 for four consecutive years.

The only other rapper to do so is Drake, who has dominated the chart for years.

Jack Harlow’s streak of No. 1 hits began in 2021, when he collaborated with Lil Nas X on the viral anthem “Industry Baby”, which spent two weeks at the top spot. In 2022, he scored his first solo No. 1 with “First Class”, a catchy tune that showcased his witty wordplay and charisma.

In 2023, he released “Lovin On Me” as the lead single from his second studio album, “The Jack of All Trades”, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.

Jack Harlow, who hails from Louisville, Kentucky, has been praised for his versatility and originality, as he blends different genres and influences in his music.
