J.I.D “Enemy” Biggest Hit Of His Career?

J.I.D, the Dreamville rapper, recently shared that he had no intention of working with Imagine Dragons before Mac Miller convinced him to do his verse on their hit song “Enemy.” J.I.D admitted on the Throwing Fits podcast that it was Mac who urged him to collaborate with Dan Reynolds and his band, saying it would be one of the most significant songs of his career. “He’s like, ‘It was going to be the biggest shit of your career.’ He’s like, ‘Bro, do this song.’ But I wasn’t going to do it at all. It was a little pushback, but at the same time, this is a once-in-a-lifetime thing,” J.I.D shared. The rapper revealed that he even lost points with Hip Hop purists who dismissed the song, but he didn’t care since it had over a billion streams.

Mac’s suggestion proved to be right as “Enemy” became one of the biggest hits of 2021, peaking at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It also became J.I.D’s first song to reach that mark. In a 2021 Instagram post, J.I.D shared that his verse was initially for a song he was working on with Mac, but the late rapper advised him to use it for the Imagine Dragons track.

J.I.D was recently announced as one of the performers at the 2023 Lollapalooza Festival in Chicago’s Grant Park, which is scheduled for August 3-6. Other rap performers include Kendrick Lamar, Lil Yachty, Joey Bada$$, and Pusha T. The festival’s presale tickets will begin on March 23rd.
