DJ Khaled scores first Hot 100 No. 1 single with "I'm the One"


DJ Khaled has officially scored himself #anotherone.

As was made clear by the lineup, DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One” single, which features Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper and Lil Wayne, launches to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. This is Khaled’s first ever leader on the Hot 100.

The pop tune is also a first No. 1 for Chance the Rapper and Quavo. This also adds a fourth Hot 100 leader for Bieber and third for Lil Wayne.

As Billboard notes, the single overshadowed Bruno Mars’ “That’s What I Like” to take the top spot and also add more momentum behind Khaled’s upcoming album, Grateful.

"I'm the One" is now Khaled's biggest feat to date on the chart. His last two big performances on the Hot 100 were "For Free" with Drake, which peaked at No. 14, and 2011's "I'm On One."

So far, Khaled's Grateful album is preceded by his Jay Z and Beyoncé collaboration "Shining" and a guest list that grows by the day.
