HNHH's top 10 tracks, according to our Top 100 chart.
This is a moment to be proud of. A Top Ten filled with almost all new music, and not from a select few artists.
Well, there is the matter of one very predictable champion but...you know what?
Let's get to it.
10) Tyga - Scandal
Tyga has had a rough 2015 to say the least. He's found himself in headlines more often for his extracurricular activies than for his music. He addressed it head-on in this Fuk Wat They Talkin Bout track.
The reaction from HNHH readers was mixed, but curiosity pushed the track into the Top 10 in its first week.
9) Chris Brown ft. French Montana - Gangsta Way
Normally, a Chris Brown x French Montana collab would create a singularity of awful pop-rap. But "Gangsta Way" is a slice of the slow, smooth Breezy that helped make him famous.
HNHH agreed, giving the track a 88% positive rating and pushing it to #9 in its first week.
8) Fetty Wap - Trap Niggas (Freestyle)
It's only been a few weeks since Fetty was in the Top 10, but God have we've missed him. His "Trap Niggas" freestyle is a bouncing, Future-lite production that is perfect for the last few days of Summer.
This freestyle landed at #8 in its first week on the charts.
NOLA running the Top 10 this week. Lil Wayne & August Alsina grabbed two spots on the chart this week, the first of which is this Curren$y track.
The track is a pop-rap banger over a swampy bassline, with the requisite Breezian hook from Alsina. HNHH readers were feeling this one, pushing it to #7 in its first week with near universal praise.
6) Mac Miller - Break The Law
The GO:OD A.M. hype train continues. Mac Miller's second single fell far from the top spot it held last week, but still came in at #6 in its second week on the charts.
5) August Alsina ft. Lil Wayne - Why I Do It
That Hot Boyz reunion had y'all feeling the Crescent City this week. "Why I Do It" is the second track from the Alsina/Wayne tag team, a triumphant horn-filled song that starts with the line "Get off my dick" and coins the word "boogling."
That was good enough for the #5 spot in its debut week.
Certain things in life are inevitable. Among those is the fact that any new Top Dawg track is going into the Top 10.
"Easy Bake" is not an easy track to love, with Jay Rock's unhinged delivery and Kendrick's sleepy verse coming over a monster movie beat. Still, it made it to the #4 spot on the strength of its superstar parts.
3) French Montana ft. A$AP Rocky, Chinx & N.O.R.E. - Off The Rip (Remix)
A$AP Rocky lent his starpower to Chinx's posthumous collaboration with French Montana and N.O.R.E.
It can be hard to place Rocky in the canon of NYC rap, but then he goes and jumps on some old-school NY production to remind everyone where he calls home.
The remix came in at #3 in its first week on the charts.
Anyone hoping that Ty Dolla $ign or Trey Songz might be able to elevate a French/Wiz track will be sorely disappointed.
"GHOGH2"is a mess. And HNHH readers responded in the only way they know how, curiosity followed by revulsion. The track rose to #2 in its first week on the charts, but features a paltry rating of 57% positive.
1) Drake - Hotline Bling (Cha Cha Remix)
Damnit, y'all. I thought we were done.
"Hotline Bling" gained 1 spot to come in at #1 in its fifth week on the charts.
