It’s almost the weekend, but first we need to get to Billboard News. I’m Tetris Kelly, today is Friday, October 13th, Jimin’s birthday.
And let’s talk about new music.
Bad Bunny said, “Surprise!” Unnoticed, he gave us “Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana.”
I had a great time working with Metro Boomin on the Billboard cover, but we talked about a lot more – take a look.
Your Billboard cover shoot, was that your dream? Does this make you feel good?
Yes, he is a blessed man. I’m very pleased to be here. Still surreal.
And I mean, at our Power Players event, we gave you an award for three albums reaching number one on the Billboard 200. So let’s talk about that success. What do you do so consistently that you continue to top our charts?
It’s true… I feel like it’s caring. Just like caring enough to make time for something where it’s not hard for me to just spend a lot of time if I need to.
Well, you have so many hits, like whether it’s your hits or other people’s hits that you’ve worked on, you know. “Congratulations”, “Tuesday”, “Jumpman”, what do you think is Metro Boomin’s signature song? What are fans waiting for? What do you close your set with every time you do this?
