The song peaked at number nine on the ''Billboard'' Hot 100, marking his 27th top ten song as a writer, a sum which includes seven number one singles on the chart. "Eastside" was also a global success, topping the charts in four countries and peaking within the top ten of several others. It was followed up with "I Found You" (with Calvin Harris), "Better to Lie" (with Jesse and Swae Lee), "Roses" (with Brendon Urie and Juice Wrld), and "Graduation" (with Juice Wrld). His debut album, ''Friends Keep Secrets'' was released in December of that year to modest success.
