That album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and landed multiple tracks on the Hot 100, leading to Pi’erre topping Billboard’s Hot 100 Producers chart. Pi’erre produced Drake’s long-awaited, “Pain 1993” which hit the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100. He also continued to receive praise from publications like Pitchfork, who recently counted him among “the best rap producers of the last few years. Now, Bourne continues to expand his scope, unwilling to settle into any defined role. With hits like “4U” in the pipeline, it’s hard to imagine the young star stopping any time soon.
