Elon Musk's personal celebrity has catapulted his dance single into SoundCloud's top 10, prompting the Tesla and SpaceX chief executive to brag about his new side-hustle.

The billionaire dropped the song itself, an objectively unremarkable Electronic Dance Music (EDM) number titled Don't Doubt ur Vibe, in January.

The song, currently the fourth most popular track on SoundCloud this week, has been played roughly 170,000 times and has been listened to more than 2.6 million times in total.

It includes Musk performing his own lyrics: "Don't doubt your vibe, because it's true. Don't doubt your vibe, because it's you," repeated over an electronic beat.

"Putting that on my LinkedIn for sure," Mr Musk joked.

Fans initially found it hard to decide whether or not Musk was joking about releasing the new track when he shared images of himself in a mixing studio while tweeting teases such as "this song is hard" and "be … cause … it's … true".

He had posted a series of images on his newly re-branded EDM Twitter account, showing him in a music studio behind the equaliser as he seemingly perfects his tracks.

After the release, he tweeted a popular meme that shows the Joker on the famous steps in Brooklyn dancing to the theme tune to Netflix's The Witcher, while a smaller version of the villain danced behind him to his new track.

Back in March 2019, he released an ode to the gorilla that was shot dead at a Cincinnati Zoo, called "RIP Harambe", where he rapped his tributes to the primate.
