Huncho Jack, meanwhile, is the new duo of Travis Scott and Takeoff’s fellow Migos member Quavo.
Let’s look at the Hot 100 history of Migos and its three members: Takeoff, Quavo and Offset.
As a group, Migos has tallied 21 total entries on the Hot 100, dating to its first, “Versace,” which spent a week at No. 99 on Sept. 21, 2013. The group has since earned a pair of top 10s (among six top 40 hits): “Bad and Boujee,” featuring Lil Uzi Vert, which spent three weeks at No. 1 beginning in January 2017, and “MotorSport,” with Nicki Minaj and Cardi B, currently at No. 7 after reaching No. 6.
Quavo was the first Migos member to make a Hot 100 visit apart from the trio and leads the three with 12 entries on his own. He made his first such appearance on July 2, 2016, when he bowed and peaked at No. 71 with “Champions,” his team-up with Kanye West, Gucci Mane, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, Travis Scott, Yo Gotti and Desiigner. Quavo has earned four top 10s, including the No. 1 “I’m the One,” by another high-profile cast: DJ Khaled featuring Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne and himself; it topped the chart dated May 20, 2017.
Offset has earned nine solo Hot 100 charted titles. He’s risen highest with “Ghostface Killers,” with 21 Savage and Metro Boomin and featuring Travis Scott. The track reached No. 35 in November.
While “Eye 2 Eye” is Takeoff’s first Hot 100 entry, the song follows his 2017 appearance on the Hot Dance/Electronic Songs chart; he hit No. 26 on the list in July as featured, with Snoop Dogg and John Legend, on Calvin Harris‘ “Holiday.”
Meanwhile, Huncho Jack debuts seven songs on the newest Hot 100, with “Eye 2 Eye” earning the highest placement. The act’s LP, Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, launches at No. 1 on Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and Top Rap Albums and arrives at No. 3 on the Billboard 200.
