Debuting in the top spot, the track marks the controversial rapper’s first number one, and only the 40th song ever to debut at No. 1 on the Hot 100 in the chart’s history.
Celebrating the achievement, the rapper posted a video on Instagram which saw him popping a bottle of champagne while repeatedly claiming to be “unstoppable”.

Both Billboard and Bieber went on to rubbish the claims, with Bieber writing: “60,000 units came at the end because we don’t disclose our numbers until the end of the week. The rules are clear one credit card can buy max four copies. Anything over that, the entire amount gets thrown out.”
Tekashi is also set to be sued by two concert promoters for US$5.3million later this month.
Promoters Benhur Tesfalidet and Anton Alexander, the plaintiffs, are accusing 6ix9ine of fraud, breach of contract and defamation.
