Creeping up on this week's Billboard Hot 100 chart is Fat Joe and Remy Ma's streetsweeper "All The Way Up." The single, which has been killing radio and clubs all around, is on track to be the pair's first Top 50 record on the chart since 2005's "Lean Back." While it's ascending on the Hot 100, the hit is busy crushing elsewhere, like on the Hot Rap Songs chart, where it sits at a comfy Top 10 spot. With the summer approaching, expect the numbers to shoot..., yes, all the way up.
"It's overwhelming," says Infared, the standing trump card to Joey Crack and Remy Ma's ubiquitous banger, of the song's general praise. "It's real humbling to hear the biggest artists in the world repeating what you're saying."
Infared is the man behind the song's infectious hook, which he says was created as a product of the song's energy. "When the beat came on, I just said: 'All the way up!'," he recalled. "It's great to see that song put a stamp on New York again."
As the song balloons up the chart, word is buzzing about a star-studded remix featuring some big names. Although he was extremely discreet, Infared had just one response to the speculation: "New York, we back."
