It appears as if Desiigner is going through the "Kanye Effect." His hit song "Panda," which happened to be a part of Kanye West's "Father Stretch My Hands Pt.

2," has been rising up the Billboard Hot 100 chart and only Rihanna stands in his way.

Desiigner is New York rapper who has adopted the style of hip-hop acts like Future and Migos. Since his appearance on Kanye West's The Life of Pablo album, Desiigner has been somewhat blowing up.

His hit song "Panda" has been a heavily rotated track on the radio and he is also making headlines thanks to some pretty strange live performances, one in which he actually threw up on stage.


"Panda" is currently number two on Billboard's Hot 100 behind Rihanna's hit song "Work" featuring Drake. It seems to be rising up to the top but "Work" will be a heavy contender.

There is certainly a possibility that Desiigner could take the top spot which would be huge as he already stands above Lukas Graham, Meghan Trainor and Zayn Malik.

There is no telling what else Desiigner has in store for fans but if this single is any indication of his future, it looks pretty bright.
