Kodak Black's "ZEZE" Is The Highest Charting Song To Start With A "Z" On The Hot 100

Kodak Black, Travis Scott and Offset make history on the Billboard charts with "ZEZE."


Kodak Black blessed us with his new song, "ZEZE" featuring Travis Scott and Offset nearly two weeks ago, and it proves to be another hit in Young Kodak's catalog. The rapper's single soared to the number 2 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 upon its release, earning Kodak Black his second top 10 single in his career. While debuting a new single at number 2 on the chart is an impressive feat, Kodak Black, Travis Scott, and Offset also made Billboard history with their latest single.

Kodak Black, Travis Scott and Offset's "ZEZE" is not only their highest charting single ever, it's also the highest charting single in Billboard Hot 100 history to ever start with a "Z." In the Hot 100's 60-year history, the only other song starting with the letter Z to ever come close to the number 2 spot was the 1963 single "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah," by Bob B. Soxx and the Blue Jeans which peaked at number 8.

Aside from those two songs, there have only been fifteen other tracks that start with the letter Z to have ever made their way onto the Billboard Hot 100. Among those are Post Malone's "Zack and Codeine" which peaked at #23, Chris Brown's "Zero" which hit #80 on the chart and Future's "Zoom" which just made it onto the Hot 100 at #99. Boosie Badazz and Yung Joc's collab, "Zoom" also charted at #61.
