BlocBoy JB's new single "Look Alive" just made a massive debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
The Drake-featuring track lands at No. 6 on the latest ranking, joining Drake's own "God's Plan," which has been hanging out in the top spot for several weeks now. The new collab's release was preceded by Drake's appearance at a club in Memphis alongside BlocBoy in January. Social media clips showed Drake was clearly into BlocBoy's previously released "Rover" and also gave fans an early glimpse at the collab that would later become "Look Alive," now a certified hit.
Speaking of "God's Plan," Drake took the vaguely "Rock Show"-esque video for the Scary Hours single straight to YouTube last Friday and has amassed nearly 30 million views in the days since. Though Drake, like me, finds Instagram challenges to be "annoying," he followed the video's well-received release by issuing a challenge of sorts to his fans. "I am not into challenges on IG," he said on Instagram Stories. "But today I am going to challenge everyone to just go out and do something for someone, anything, the smallest thing, just to bring another human being some joy."
The track, as teased in snippets earlier this year, was originally set to feature a verse from Trippie Redd. When a fan commented on Drake's Instagram post about this being a "MASSIVE" missed opportunity, Redd responded by teasing future collaborations with the 6 God. "I'm not gone be salty about it tho," he said. "I got plenty of time to have the opportunity again."
