Patience is said to be a virtue. It all paid off for Future who earned his first Billboard Hot 100 hit with his 125th entry thanks to appearing on Certified Lover Boy‘s viral “Way 2 Sexy” alongside Drake and Young Thug.

The elusive No. 1 hit comes over a decade following his first Hot 100 entry which came with a guest feature on YC’s “Racks” in 2011. The track peaked at No. 42 during June of 2011.

Soon after his first entry, Future flooded Hip Hop’s mainstream became a chart staple for the second half of the 2010s. Another CLB collaboration between Future and Drake will also land at No. 12 with “N 2 Deep.”
