share close

Rich Amiri banks his first career entry on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (dated Feb. 10), as his breakthrough single “One Call” debuts at No. 79.

Released in November on Internet Money Records/10K Projects, the track opens on the strength of its streaming sum: 6.8 million official U.S. streams (up 44%) in the Jan. 26-Feb. 1 tracking week, according to Luminate. It also bounds 45-33 on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, which uses the same streaming-, airplay- and sales-based methodology as the Hot 100.

The song appears on Rich Amiri’s latest LP, Ghetto Fabulous, also released in November. TikTok has been a factor in the song’s growth, as the track has been used in over 350,000 clips on the platform to date. The song soundtracks one growing trend involving creators comparing themselves to lovestruck TV/film characters when asked about their crushes. The virality of the song sparked its debut at No. 17 on the Feb. 3-dated TikTok Billboard Top 50 chart.

“I don’t trust a soul, I don’t trust nobody,” the 19-year-old raps in the self-empowering track. “Extra green up in my pocket look like spinach/I put gold all in my mouth, I hate the dentist.”

Rich Amiri hails from Randolph, Mass., in the South Shore area outside Boston. He has released two additional LPs: For the Better in 2022 and Evolution in March 2023. On the latter album, he collaborated with Lil Tecca on the track “Poppin.” He first began releasing music on streaming services in 2019.

Thanks to “One Call,” Rich Amiri also jumps 28-22 for a new high on the Emerging Artists chart.
