There’s little to no doubt hip-hop are unfamiliar with the “Daytrip took it to 10” tag in some of their favorite songs over the last few years.
From Lil Nas X’s breakout hit “Old Town Road” to Juice WRLD’s legend, the super-producer duo shows no signs on stopping their magic formula.
Amassing two Billboard No. 1 hits and nine Top 40 entries thus far, take a look back at some of their chart-topping tracks below!
Daytrip worked with producer 16yrold to curate this masterpiece of a beat. With its impressively simple melody combined with bass that hits like a freight train, “Mo Bamba” started seeing traction a year after its release in 2017 — becoming one of the biggest songs of that year and peaking at No. 6 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Juice WRLD dropped this dedication track in honor of fallen artists in passing of XXXTENTACION, Lil Peep and Mac Miller. His melodic crooning was filled with prophetic lyrics about his own passing. Production on this track features melancholy guitar chords and keys with 808s and slower drum patterns.
Travis and Cudi made headlines when they announced plans to work together on a joint project titled THE SCOTTS. Though the project has yet to see the light of day, the title track features ethereal production and stellar verses from both artists.
As one of Cordae’s first hits, “Kung Fu” is a banger by any measure. Looking back, his trajectory should have been obvious at the start, with his flow and delivery becoming one of the most profound of the new wave. Daytrip took the liberty of creating a dark piano progression with enough bass to shake an Escalade.
Post Malone on a Big Sean song is a guaranteed hit as it is, however, the elevated production Take a Daytrip brought to their collaboration was on another level. A whirlwind of kicks, synths and hi hats create a bouncy atmosphere for Sean and Post to spit over, curating one of Sean’s hit records off his latest album Detroit 2.
One of the fan favorites off of MOTM5, Daytrip’s ability to mesh their sound with the energy of Cudi’s prequels showcases their versatility as a producer combo.
Lil Nas X’s follow-up to his massively popular “Old Town Road” was destined to be a hit when Nas previewed a snippet that had fans been begging for for months. This song was the beginning of a fruitful working relationship between the producer duo and artist, as the trio continues to work together producing Nas’ upcoming debut album.
Lil Nas’s newest single, “Industry Baby,” made waves due to the mixed reactions to its provocative video. The track’s triumphant horns are backed by thick 808s and drums as Lil Nas and Jack Harlow go crazy on their respective verses.
