That same month, the lead single from the LP, titled “On Chill” and featuring Jeremih, earned the No. 1 spot on the Rap Airplay chart.
This year, the rapper appeared on the Top Triller Global chart, for his feature on Nigerian artist Rotimi’s track “In My Bed.” The song peaked at No. 15 on the list in May.
