"Hello" is a song by American rapper Pop Smoke, featuring rapper and singer A Boogie wit da Hoodie, from the former's posthumous debut deluxe studio album, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon (2020). It was written by Pop Smoke and A Boogie wit da Hoodie, who are credited under their legal names of Bashar Jackson and Julius Dubose, alongside Steven Victor, Jason Avalos, Alex Petit and Ricardo Lamarre. The latter two handled the song's production.

The song was released as the sixth single from the album on February 9, 2021, by Victor Victor Worldwide and Republic Records. "Hello" features minimalist instrumentation of piano, strings, and drum. It peaked at number one on the US Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles while reaching the top 60 on the Canadian Hot 100 and Swiss Hitparade.

Background and release[edit]

The song was first announced on July 8, 2020, by Pop Smoke's manager Steven Victor, through his Twitter account. He indicated that the song would be on the deluxe version of Shoot for the Stars Aim for the Moon.[1] "Hello" was later released on the deluxe version as the thirtieth track on July 20, 2020.[2][3][4] The song was released as the sixth single from the album on February 9, 2021, by Victor Victor Worldwide and Republic Records.[5] The song was written by Pop Smoke and A Boogie wit da Hoodie, who are credited under their legal names of Bashar Jackson and Julius Dubose, alongside Victor, Jason Avalos, Alex Petit and Ricardo Lamarre. The track was produced by the latter two, respectively known as CashmoneyAP and Rico Beats.[6]

Composition and reception[edit]

According to Mitch Findlay of HotNewHipHop, "Hello" consists of an "oppressive drumline, juxtaposed beautifully over an emotional blend of piano and string".[7] Pop Smoke references basketball player Manu Ginóbili, who played for the San Antonio Spurs, in the songs lyrics.[8] Pop Smoke raps: "I like my bitches redbone, ass fat, jello, Lightskin, yellow, iced out, hello, I'm the king of New York, Melo, Black hair by the regis and pelloAsk around, niggas know me, I'm in Europe with Ginobli."[9]

Findlay opined that it is "surprising they didn't put this one on the original album, as it's easily one of the best songs we've seen from both projects".[7] Pandora named "Hello" one of the top songs of summer 2020.[10] In an interview with The Source, English actor Damson Idris explained why he loved the song: I was in LA, right and I went and got loud car, I never do that. I got a G-Wagon, right and the song was playing. Someone got in my car and played it and my shoulders just couldn't stop. Then I saw the video and I just saw the energy that he had when he performed that song. And, you know, in dedication to him, I wanted it to be on my top 50 Spotify.[11] Bobby Shmurda shared a video of himself listening to "Hello" after after serving six years in prison.[12]

The song peaked at number one on the US Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart[13] while reaching number 35 on the US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and number 39 on the Rhythmic charts.[14][15] The song further charted at number 36 on the Canadian Hot 100,[16] number 53 on the Swiss Hitparade chart,[17] and number 8 on the New Zealand Heatseekers chart.[18]
