Kid Cudi set the record for shortest ever song to appear on the Hot 100 chart as his song “Beautiful Trip” from his album Man On The Moon III: The Chosen has landed at the #100 spot.

With the appearance on the chart, Cudi surpasses the 45-second Pikotaro song “PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen)” as the shortest in the chart’s 62 year history. “Beautiful Trip” serves as Cudi’s tenth song to appear on the Hot 100 this week making the rapper account for a remarkable 10% of the total chart.

Kid Cudi made his long-awaited return this past April when he dropped his first solo track since 2016. "Leader of the Delinquents" served as a COVID-19 anthem of sorts as the song starts off with how Cudi wants "smack 'em with some s*** before the world ends."

"Same old denims, worn for days / I've been home makin' jams and many wonderful waves," he raps in a verse that we all can relate to.

At the same time, the track sees Cudi reflecting on the disconnect he feels from “fame and loneliness.”

“I've seen in wonderful shades / Peekin' at the shadows of the new landscape / I've been trapped in my mind, I've been tryin' to escape.”
