Hit Prediction: Top 50 – US Billboard Hot 100, Top 10 – US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs
DATE – July 19, 2009
Fabolous is in top shape here with his slick lines, fly rhyme patterns, and those smooth vocals that ladies love. The-Dream adds his signature touch to this one and joila! – we have a smash hit.
What sells this song is the idea of being spoiled rotten by Fabolous and The-Dream, the multi-millionaire entertainers making these promises in the song. Women love men to treat them to nice things and this is the pleasure that “Throw It In the Bag” plays into. As the lyrics so arrogantly declare: “Fuck the price on the tag/ just throw it in the bag.”
What woman you know doesn’t want to hear that?
This song packs money-money swagger and the goodies that urban radio craves–both the R&B-skewed and the hip hop-skewed stations.
I predict “Throw It In the Bag” to be a top 50 hit on the Billboard Hot 100.
“Throw It In the Bag” is currently #82 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #10 on the Billboard Hot Rap Tracks chart. I’m expecting it to move inside the top 5 on the Hot Rap Tracks chart in a few weeks.
Is “Throw It In the Bag” hot or flop?
Will “Throw It In the Bag” climb up the Billboard Hot 100 to a top 50 or top 40 spot?
