Wiz Khalifa Scores First No. 1 Single on Billboard Hot 100

Even though the Pittsburgh Steelers lost at Super Bowl XLV, that hasn’t put the brakes on Wiz Khalifa’s hometown anthem “Black and Yellow.” The catchy single sits atop this week’s Billboard Hot 100, jumping 4-1 and earning him his first chart-topping record.

Additionally, the Stargate-produced smash holds strong at No. 2 on the Digital Songs chart, selling another 198,000 downloads. The sing-song tune bumps Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” to No. 2, while Dr. Dre earns his highest debut on the chart with “I Need a Doctor” featuring Eminem and Skylar Grey. The Alex Da Kid-produced single from Detox enters at No. 5.

“Black and Yellow” is the lead offering from Wiz’s major label debut Rolling Papers, in stores March 29. It will feature production from Jim Jonsin, Stargate, and Benny Blanco.
