Though we’re fairly sure that Bad Boy/Interscope’s Machine Gun Kelly is not engaging in any sort of fiddle-playing competition anytime soon, his devilish song is making quite the mark on the charts. That single is “Rap Devil”, a response to labelmate Eminem, which had a giant response following its debut last week, with over five million streams on SoundCloud and a massive 65 million views on YouTube. Following a proper release to all digital retailers, the track continued its quick ascent, claiming the top spot on iTunes in the U.S. since Friday afternoon. At 63 countries in total reporting the hit on the all-genre chart, “Rap” is certain to become one of his biggest singles to date, which also extends to the major streaming services. Currently ranking at #35 and #65 on Apple Music and Spotify’s U.S. charts, respectively, the release is north of three million streams (and headed much higher) at the latter service. “Rap” is also sporting impressive numbers on Shazam, debuting at #68 on the newest U.S. chart with more than 38,000 tags over the last week or so. (It also ranks at #4 on the Future Hits list as the highest new entry in the top 20.) With the hype still building for Kelly’s new hit, expect a heavenly future for it through the fall.
