Although Musk's track is a success worldwide, it ranks lower on US views alone, with less than 50% of its total in the past week coming from Americans. In the US-only charts, "Don't Doubt ur Vibe" was 28th on Wednesday. The new track follows a rap song that Musk uploaded last year called "RIP Harambe," which has 2.8 million streams. In light of his new SoundCloud fame, the tech giant changed his Twitter bio to a series of emojis including a music note, a cloud, and a crown. He also briefly changed his Twitter name to "E 'D' M," a play on his initials EM and his newfound music genre.
