Lil Nas X has done it again.
The rapper lands his third No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Industry Baby.” The Jack Harlow-assisted song rises from No. 2, becoming Nas’ third leader on the chart and Harlow’s first.
Taking to Twitter, Nas celebrated his latest chart achievement. “IT TOOK A FEW MONTHS BUT WE HERE! THANK U EVERYBODY! INDUSTRY BABY IS THE NUMBER 1 SONG IN THE WORLD! LESSSSSGOOOOOO!” he wrote.
Harlow also reflected on the milestone moment. “My first number one… I’d be lying if I said I didn’t see this coming while I was writing my verse,” he tweeted. “This song is something I’m gonna be proud to be a part of for the rest of my life. Thank you for having me @LilNasX.”
My first number one…
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t see this coming while I was writing my verse. This song is something I’m gonna be proud to be a part of for the rest of my life.

Kanye West, who co-produced and co-wrote the song with Take A Daytrip, also earns his fifth No. 1 single on the Hot 100.
Prior to “Industry Baby,” Nas’ debut single “Old Town Road,” featuring Billy Ray Cyrus, topped the Hot 100 for a record 19 weeks in April-August 2019, while “Montero (Call Me by Your Name)” was No. 1 for a week in April.
Additionally, Nas has surpassed Drake to become the rapper with the most monthly listeners on Spotify, second only to Doja Cat. His album Montero is also the most-streamed album globally on Spotify for the fourth week in a row.
