Lil Wayne stepped back onto the charts in a major way. The rapper’s new single “6 Foot 7 Foot” lands in the top 10 on the singles chart this week.
“6 Foot 7 Foot,” the first commercial release from Weezy since his stint in jail, debuts at No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100. The lead offering from next year’s highly-anticipated Tha Carter IV sold 166,000 downloads in its opening week and also claims the No. 3 spot on the Digital Songs chart. It is the second time he has debuted in the top 10 as a lead artist since September with the Drake-assisted “Right Above It.”
Weezy debuted the Bangladesh-produced track on television for the first time during last weekend’s “SNL.” He will perform it again on “NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly” on December 31.
