Hip-hop heads, did you know that his 2004 single, “Slow Motion,” was Juvenile’s first number one hit of his career?
While the Cash Money rapper had already achieved massive success with previous and arguably better known singles like “Ha” and “Back That Azz Up,” those two singles only managed to hit number 18 and 19 on the Billboard Hot 100.
It wasn’t until Juvenile dropped “Slow Motion” off his sixth album, Juve the Great, that he got the number one hit he had been looking for so long.
Produced by Danny Kartel and featuring Soulja Slim, who was killed a few months before the song was released, “Slow Motion” would become the seventh song to hit number one for a posthumous artist.
“Slow Motion” also happened to be the first number one hit for Cash Money Records, a few years before Lil Wayne, Drake and Nicki Minaj would take over the mantle.
