Today we’re wishing T.I (Clifford Joseph Harris, Jr.) a very happy birthday! it’s incredible to think he’s already been in the game for over 15 years and today he turns just 34. We couldn’t resist celebrating with his unforgettable song ”Whatever You Like” from his sixth studio album, Paper Trail. This song was his first Nº1 hit as a lead artist, and today is all about him.
Back in 2008, during the debut-week, the song had the best-to-date sales by a Rap Track. T.I then broke his own record two months later when his song ”Live Your Life” sold 334,000 digital downloads in it’s first week. Whatever You Like had 205,000 downloads.
The song also holds the record for the biggest leap to the top on the Hot 100 charts. In the span of just one week, it flew from Nº71 to Nº1. This record was held for six consecutive weeks before T.I’s next hit ”Live Your Life” broke that record too. Leaping from Nº80 to Nº1.
