Background and releaseEdit

In February 2015, Atlantic Records announced Furious 7: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, the musical companion to Universal's action film Furious 7, which would be released in stores and at all online retailers on March 17, and with the movie opening in theaters and IMAX on April 3, 2015. The soundtrack became available for pre-order on February 17 with select pre-orders receiving instant gratification downloads of the collection's first promotional singles, including Khalifa and Azalea's "Go Hard or Go Home." The track had its exclusive debut on Warner Music Group's "Snapchat Discover" service, Atlantic's first audio premiere via the photo messaging application Snapchat's new portal.[3][4][5][6] After the premiere, Khalifa tweeted Azalea about an upcoming video shoot for the track.[7] In 2014, it had also been revealed by The Fast and the Furious actor Vin Diesel that Azalea would be making a cameo appearance on the seventh installment of the film series.[8]

Commercial performanceEdit

"Go Hard or Go Home" debuted at number one hundred on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Khalifa's twenty-seventh charting title and Azalea's eighth, and at number thirty-seven on the Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for the week ending February 22, 2015. Digital sales of the track fueled its arrival on the charts, logging 40,000 downloads in its first week out, landing a number twenty-seven bow on Billboard's Digital Songs. Buzz around the release of the song also launched it onto the weekly Billboard Twitter Top Tracks chart, where it entered at number ten.[9][10] The track re-entered the Billboard Hot 100 dated April 25, 2015, at number eighty-six, with a fairly equal split of rising sales (27,000, up 39 percent) and streams (1.7 million, up 68 percent).[11]
