Lil Pump's 'Harvard Dropout' Reaches Top Ten of Billboard Top 200
Returning to the Top 10 of the Billboard Top 200, Lil Pump crashes the chart at #7 with his hotly-anticipated sophomore album, Harverd Dropout.
As expected, Harverd Dropout got everybody talking about the multi-platinum selling modern icon and history-making teenage superstar once more. Among a flood of articles, Variety claimed, "Lil Pump is wise to his world and smart where it counts," while Vulture wrote, "The best songs are the most depraved." Moreover, the combined total tally of singles "Be Like Me" [feat. Lil Wayne], "Esskeetit," "Butterfly Doors" and "Racks On Racks" already approaches a staggering 352 million streams. Meanwhile, the music video for "Be Like Me" leapt past 22 million views in under a week. It doesn't stop there. Harverd Dropout delivers banger after banger with fresh fire and a whole lot of fun-like only Pump can.
To celebrate the release, Lil Pump launched a full-scale cultural takeover. He served up an epic performance of "Be Like Me" on Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! Also after setting the Internet on fire with the announcement that he would be giving the Commencement Address at Harvard University (unfortunately, it will be Angela Merkel, who did not write "Gucci Gang"), he hit the campus. On February 28, he visited Harvard's WHRB Radio and hosted the "Lil Pump Harverd Takeover." Not only did he deliver the "real" commencement address while encouraging students to stay in school, he granted a live interview and had fun during a fan Q&A, in addition to an exclusive "Harverd Dropout" pop-up merch shop.
Additionally, the first episode of his official YouTube series, "Pump University," eclipsed 3 million views in five days' time. Debuted on his YouTube Channel, he assumes the role of professor and doles out the kind of "lil lessons" we could all benefit from. Be on the lookout for the second and third episodes soon.
Lil Pump has been everywhere lately. What's more, he took over the global Spotify marquee and lent his unmistakable countenance to massive YouTube billboards around the country.
Next up, he brings Harverd Dropout on the road with his upcoming 2019 Spring tour with Lil Skies, where he will be taking over his biggest stages yet coast-to-coast. Check out the full confirmed itinerary below and purchase tickets HERE.
This month, he vies for "Best New Hip-Hop Artist" at the 2019 iHeartRadio Music Awards. This marks his first nomination at the show, which will broadcast live on Fox March 14.
Harverd Dropout season has only just begun.
