It’s been a few months since Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow dropped their viral hit “Industry Baby”, and its chart domination was a long time coming. After weeks spent in second place, this smash hit finally reached the coveted no. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
Lil Nas X and Jack Harlow both celebrated the song’s success on social media, but this was an especially big triumph for Harlow since “Industry Baby” happens to be his very first no. 1 single.
“My first number one. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t see this coming while I was writing my verse. Thank you for having me Lil Nas X. This song is something I am gonna be proud to be a part of for the rest of my life. As for what’s next…buckle up,” he wrote on social media.
“Industry Baby” was originally released on July 23rd when it debuted at no. 2 spot, but it didn’t manage to reach the top until now. Its rise to the no. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart was aided by a recent release of two new versions of the song, including an extended mix and another one with an alternative digital single cover.
