He Had A Great Year: Wiz Khalifa Talks About Topping The Hot 100
This was the year that Billboard celebrated the 1000th No. 1 song on the Hot 100. As they look back on this year in music, They’re celebrating that milestone with a month-long series of videos — one for each day of December — chatting with 31 of the hitmakers who rocketed to the top of the chart since its inception in 1958.
Billboard: The Juice recently chatted with Wiz Khalifa about his No. 1 — early 2011’s “Black and Yellow.” “Just to know that we can accomplish something like that with something that I made up in my head, feels great,” said Khalifa.
Wiz Khalifa’s single, which peaked at No. 1 on Feb. 19, came naturally to the rapper. “When I did it, I knew it was catchy. It was the first thing that came to my head as soon as I heard the beat,” he said. “I didn’t take any time to try to go over it or do it over. I just went with the first thing that I was thinking of.” “Black and Yellow” also became the Pittsburgh Steelers Super Bowl anthem since the song is an ode to the city’s black and yellow colors.
