Lil Durk Passes Competition With Most Charting Songs This Year

It’s unclear when it happened, but Chicago’s Lil Durk rose from the voice of the streets to one of hip-hop’s biggest superstars. Now, the rapper has officially secured an impressive career milestone, at least for the time being. 

According to a post from Chart Data, re-shared by Elliot Wilson, Lil Durk has become the artist with the most chart placements in 2021 so far, a staggering thirty-five. Though that’s subject to change, it remains a major validation of Durk’s rise, and one that may very well continue should rumor of a Certified Lover Boy appearance hold true.

As for the songs that drove him to success, lest we forget that Durk recently delivered a Lil Baby collaboration album in The Voice Of Heroesa project that likely propelled many of his songs to the Billboard charts. In addition, Durk and Drake’s “Laugh Now Cry Later” has remained a popular track, as has his Pooh Shiesty collaboration “Back In Blood.” Additionally, features with Moneybagg Yo, Meem Mill, Trippie Redd, Polo G, and Coi Leray also secured him chart placements.

Clearly, Lil Durk is in the major leagues now, and don’t be surprised if his next studio album surpasses The Voice to become the biggest of his career.
