Sure enough, we've only got two returning tracks from last week's list, and following another big recent trend in this feature, both involve Drake. Drizzy's got fingerprints on three of these ten tracks, as does Future, a sure sign that the What A Time To Be Alive team are still comfortably the hottest in the game.

ICYMI: HNHH recently launched a Spotify playlist called FIRE EMOJI: The Hottest Hip Hop Songs Right Now. The 40-track playlist is updated on a daily basis.

Joe Budden Praises Drake's "4PM In Calabasas," Says Diddy Needs To Respond
There was a flood of new music on tonight's episode of OVO Sound Radio. It was thought that Drake would pay tribute to Gucci Mane in his DJ mix, and he took it a step further and surprised listeners with a brand new collab with the unshackled Brick Squad boss himself: "Back on Road." A bit later, Drake's current No. 1, "One Dance," received a fittingly poppy remix from another Canuck in Justin Bieber. And lastly, Drake signed off by adding another installment to his storied time-sensitive city songs, this one called "4PM in Calabasas."
