'No Lie' is the lead single by the American hip hop artist 2 Chainz from his debut album 'Based on a T.R.U. Story'.
The song featuring Canadian rapper Drake was able to make its debut among the top 50 songs at the Billboard Hot 100 charts.
When the American rapper 2 Chainz released his debut album Based on a T.R.U Story in August 2012,not many expected it to be making any sort of impact in the American rap music circles.
"No Lie" proved all the critics wrong when it went number one in the US rap songs charts as well as the R&B charts, the song produced in collaboration with Canadian singer Drake gained positive reviews from the American music industry, magazines such as Rolling Stone, Billboard etc.
Drake already had 12 number one hits in the Billboard charts and helped 2 Chainz gain the much needed exposure, popularity through this single.
The song sold more than 1.5 million copies in the United States ever since its release on August 18th 2012. This was also the first time a major hit was remixed by Lil Wayne, Wiz Khalifa and King Los.
Billboard magazine praised 2 Chainz approach in the single,writing... he was full of passion, singing as if he was possessed. The magazine also added that Drake toned down the pace of 2 Chainz in the song, helping it maintain the right harmony and tempo.
The song also received positive reception in Drake's native country, Canada. It was played all over Ontario, Toronto night clubs, helping the song gain its momentum.
Although the song was a instant hit in the American rap music circles, rest of the songs from the album Based on a T.R.U Story flopped at the charts.
Drake has moved on and created many more number one hit songs ever since the release of this one, way back in 2012. In fact Drake has more number one songs in the Ivy League of rap musicians and has created a league of his own.
But unfortunately 2 Chainz is yet to come with a hit like this song released in 2012.
