The first time I heard “Bad Habit” was when watching a TikTok video and it rab for only a few seconds. I just had to hear the rest of the song.

"Bad Habit" could not be stopped
So impressed with Lacy’s catchy, sexy tune that I produced a blog about the guy a few months ago. Today, that song sits at the top of the Billboard 100 charts for the second week. Lacy produced the song and co-wrote it with Diana Gordon, John Kirby, Britanny Fousheé (as background vocals) and Matthew Castellanos.
The 24-year-old, Compton-raised singer-songwriter is riding his Billboard Hot 100 smash that had simultaneously topped five different hip-hop/R&B and alternative rock charts: Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Hot R&B Songs, Hot Rock & Alternative Songs, Hot Rock Songs and Hot Alternative Songs charts It was the first time that a song had ruled all five charts in Billboard history, no less at the same time. Yes. Steve Lacy has arrived with a boom.
The guy is the real deal with comparisons to icons like Miguel because of his sincere voice or the great Prince because he plays guitar and sings. His LP “Gemini Rights,” have some are calling it a defining L.A. album.

How special is Steve Lacy? Time will tell.
Make no mistake about it. He’s young but he’s already a decorated artist. Lacy, already a two-time Grammy nominee, may be amply rewarded at next year’s ceremony as well, especially now that “Bad Habit” has toppled Harry Styles’ “As It Was” and reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Lacy knows all about the Grammy's as he's been in the hunt for a while. His first Grammy nomination happened at 18 for his part in the Internet’s third album, “Ego Death.” But “Bad Habit” is his true launching pad for whatever future stardom may bring. The song has 275 million plays on Spotify and yielded nearly 500,000 fan videos on TikTok, culminating in hundreds of millions of views. I took the time to dig into the volume of Lac’s work and it’s clear that he’s still discovering his peaks and valley’s but his feel for his own potential is there.
