Jordan Adetunji has marked a significant milestone in his music career by entering the Billboard Hot 100 for the first time. Thanks to a nearly 50% increase in streams during the last week of June, his breakout single, “Kehlani”, debuted at number 70 on the Billboard Hot 100. The song hasn’t just found success there; it also made an impressive entry on other charts. It premiered at 17th on the Hot Rap Songs chart and climbed 13 spots to 20th on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. To top it off, the real Kehlani has teased her own involvement in a highly anticipated remix of the track.

“Making a song about Kehlani was a no-brainer to me. Her confidence and huge cultural impact is something I love! I love confidence,” Adetunji said, speaking about his viral hit. “Especially when people do things that put themselves out there, doing things out of the norm and showing huge ambition. When I made the track in my room, I posted the snippet, and when I saw the hype, I recorded a new verse and dropped it everywhere within two days! It made so much sense for me to get this song out ASAP.”

The rapid success of “Kehlani” has been a major door-opener for Adetunji, leading to significant partnerships. This year alone, the rising star has secured deals with 300 Entertainment in North America and Warner Records in the United Kingdom.

“Jordan is a generational talent whose music transcends genres,” said 300 Entertainment CEO Kevin Liles. “300 is built on recognizing an artist’s authentic self and empowering them to share their gifts with the world. We are proud to partner with Jordan’s management team and our incredible UK Warner Records family in this artistic journey.”

The impact of “Kehlani” extends beyond just chart performance and major record deals. The song has catapulted Adetunji into the spotlight, validating his artistic vision and marking him as a key player to watch in the music industry. As streams continue to surge and anticipation for the remix builds, it’s clear that Jordan Adetunji is on a path to even greater heights.
