Jack Harlow’s ‘First Class’ debuts at No. 1

Jack Harlow has lived up to the hype. After his recent single “First Class” has made tremendous noise and sparked debate all over Twitter and TikTok, Billboard has just announced that the song landed at No. 1 on the Hot 100 chart.

Along with this achievement, Chart Data announced that “First Class” had the biggest first week streaming numbers of 2022 with 54.6 million on-demand streams.

“First Class” is only the second single in 2022 to debut at No. 1, and is Harlow’s first solo No. 1 hit. He first went No. 1 last year as a feature on Lil Nas X‘s “Industry Baby,” but this new achievement comes after previous hits like “Whats Poppin” failed to reach the top, peaking at No. 2.

With a No. 1 hit now under his belt heading into his upcoming May album Come Home The Kids Miss You, Harlow’s rollout seems to have exceeded expectations.

Jack Harlow rides ‘First Class’ on highly-anticipated single

Over the past two years, Jack Harlow has ascended from plucky Louisville upstart to big name lady killer. Although his appeal is universal, romantically influenced hits such as the TikTok viral “Already Best Friends (feat. Chris Brown)” from his 2020 debut album have made his more feminine fan base a loyal one.

That sect of his followers were reinvigorated once again on March 31 after he posted a TikTok of him in the studio vibing out to an unreleased track where he samples Fergie‘s timeless 2007 hit “Glamorous (feat. Ludacris).” The TikTok sound has since been used in over 80,000 videos, as fans could not contain their excitement for the upcoming release.

It turns out, they would not have to wait long. Nearly a week later, Jack released “First Class” on April 8, the second promotional single for his upcoming May 6 album Come Home The Kids Miss You.

While the snippet for “First Class” unveiled a killer hook, the entire atmosphere of the actual song is just as smooth and oozes supreme confidence from Jack.

I been a (G), throw up the (L), sex in the (A.M.), uh-huh

(O-R-O-U-S, yeah)

And I can put you in (First class, up in the sky)

“First Class” — Jack Harlow

Immediately after the playful, flirty hook that kicks the song off, Harlow establishes a comfortable flow about his newfound fame and his ability to seduce women.

They say, “You a superstar now,” damn, I guess I am

You might be the man, well, that’s unless I am

Okay, I’ll confess I am

Go ahead and get undressed, I am

Almost as equally compelling as the original snippet, Jack also posted a TikTok earlier this week of him rehearsing a dance for the song’s eventual music video, as his impressive happy feet are on full display.

It seems that TikTok and promotion like these have paid off, as the song has already reached No. 1 on the US Apple Music chart in less than 24 hours.

“First Class” serves as an excellent warm-up for the upcoming sophomore album, much like “Nail Tech,” as they both show even sharper and more creative production methods and improved songwriting from Jack Harlow.

Taking the wok to Poland is a metaphor

There are no real borders, only imaginary ones

Sometimes you have to take the wok somewhere they told you it would never go to realize your true potential
