French Montana Lands First Ever Top 10 Billboard Hit
French Montana has earned a sweep of accomplishments throughout his lengthy career in music, but he finally earned his biggest feat to date on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The “Bring Dem Tings” rapper has landed his first ever Top 10 hit on the chart for his smash hit record, “Unforgettable,” which also features Swae Lee.
According to the chart, the record hit the No. 10 spot on the Hot 100 for the week of July 22, moving up three spots, as it was previously at No. 13. The outlet reports that the record has been on the chart for 13 weeks total so far. Previously, the Bronx native’s highest-charting record was a tie between his 2012 hit, “Pop That,” with Rick Ross, Drake and Lil Wayne, and “No Shopping” with Drake from 2016, which both peaked at No. 36.
With “Unforgettable” creeping its way higher on the charts, it could potentially build momentum to hit the top spot with French’s album rollout. The Top 10 currently contains songs such as Kendrick Lamar’s “Humble,” Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” DJ Khaled, Rihanna, and Bryson Tiller’s “Wild Thoughts,” DJ Khaled’s “I’m The One,” and the current No. 1 record, “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi, Daddy Yankee and Justin Bieber.
This is also Swae Lee’s first Top 10 Billboard hit on the chart as a featured solo artist, but he has earned himself a No. 1 record previously with Slim Jimmi of Rae Sremmurd for the duo’s “Black Beatles” smash record back in November of 2016.
French is currently gearing up to release his official sophomore album, Jungle Rules, which is slated to drop this Friday, July 14.
Congratulations to French and Swae Lee on their huge accomplishment. Maybe we’ll be able to see “Unforgettable” climb the charts higher in the coming weeks.
