Polo G’s Hall of Fame has topped this week’s new music poll.

Music fans voted in a poll published Friday (June 11) on Billboard, choosing the Chicago rapper’s latest album as their favorite new music release of the past week.

Hall of Fame, Polo G’s third album, brought in nearly 23% of the vote, beating out new music by Doja Cat (“Need to Know”), Lorde (“Solar Power”), Megan Thee Stallion (“Thot S–t”), Migos (Culture III), and others.

Hall of Fame includes Polo G’s hit song “Rapstar,” which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 earlier this year. The song drew 53.6 million U.S. streams and sold 5,300 downloads in its first week, ending April 15, according to MRC Data.

“Rapstar” also topped Billboard’s Streaming Songs chart, and earned the 22-year-old hip-hop star his first No. 1 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and Hot Rap Songs charts.

On Saturday (June 12), Polo G was arrested in Miami following his Hall of Fame release party. He was charged with battery on a police officer, resisting arrest with violence and criminal mischief, the Associated Press reports. The rapper was released on bond hours after being booked into jail.

Placing second on the past week’s tally with nearly 17% of the vote was Doja Cat’s latest single “Need to Know.” The song features thinly veiled innuendos and sexual demands, and finds Doja giving one of her most liberated vocal performances.

“Need to Know” will be featured on her upcoming sophomore album, Planet Her, which is scheduled for release on June 25. It follows the lead single and Billboard Hot 100 No. 5 hit “Kiss Me More,” featuring SZA.
