After a month spent at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100, Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit” has scaled the list to overtake the No. 1 spot. The hit track marks the singer’s first No.1 chart-topper.
Released as the second single from Lacy’s sophomore album Gemini Rights, the ballad features a funky beat over which the singer croons about not seeing things through his partner’s eyes.
“I wish I knew, I wish I knew you wanted me,” Lacy sings in the chorus.
While the singer emerged on the scene as a member of hip-hop collective The Internet, an offshoot of Odd Future, his latest LP marked an evolution in the singer’s music. Shifting from the alternative hip-hop sound of the Internet and his first album, Apollo XXI, Gemini Rights saw Lacy dive further into rock and R&B.
The top slot where “Bad Habit” now reigns was previously home to Harry Styles’ “As It Was.” Closely trailing is Sam Smith and Kim Petras’ recent pop collaboration “Unholy.”
