The Louisville Cardinals may have suffered a rough loss at the hands of Mark Stoops and the Kentucky Wildcats over the weekend, but all is not somber in Muhammad Ali’s hometown. On Monday, November 27, Louisville native Jack Harlow secured his third number-one record on the Billboard Hot 100. The sample-heavy “Lovin’ On Me” leads all singles as Taylor Swift’s “Cruel Summer” and Doja Cat’s “Paint The Town Red” sit in second and third, respectively.
“Lovin’ On Me” is Harlow’s third number-one single and his second as the lead artist. Previously, “Industry Baby” and “First Class” topped the charts. It also represents a shift for the Generation Now artist as it is his first loosie to top the charts. Previously, “First Class” was tied to his sophomore album, Come Home, The Kids Miss You, and “Industry Baby” was tied to Lil’ Nas X’s debut album, Montero. With that said, Jack Harlow hasn’t elected not to release a new body of work this year. Just a few weeks before his acting debut in Hulu’s White Men Can’t Jump, the Kentucky native delivered a surprise album called Jackman. The 10-track project debuted at number eight on the Billboard 200 and received a nomination for Best Hip-Hop Album at the 2023 BET Hip-Hop Awards.
