HNHH's top ten tracks this week, according to our Top 100 chart.
Our Top 100 updates every week with the newest and most-listened to tracks on HotNewHipHop. As of the charts closing this week, here's what perked up enough ears to land in the Top 10.
10) Kirko Bangz ft. Ty Dolla Sign - In Her Lane
This woozy, guitar-driven track barely held on to remain in the Top 10 for a second week. Kirko's latest dropped six spots from its number 4 position last week, but still managed to garner enough interest for a Top 10 spot and a "Very Hot" rating from HNHH listeners.
9) T.I. ft. Chris Brown - Lil Bit (Remix)
Breezy features were on the rise this week, with two of his tracks making significant jumps to enter the Top 10. This Brown-assisted track from DJ MLK's Good Night Don't Exist In ATL 6 jumped up 14 spots in its second week on the charts.
That being said, this K. Camp remix is clearly Clifford Harris' show. The track proves that T.I. will continue doing his thing until the sun burns out, Gaye family be damned.
8) Ludacris - Charge It To The Rap Game
Though any Chris Bridges stan can now hear Ludaversal in full, the mania surrounding Luda's new album prior to its release was enough to push this !llmind-produced preview track to number 8 during its first week on our charts.
"Charge It" is exactly what fans have been asking for, old-school Ludacris.
7) Wale ft. J. Cole - The Pessimist
Speaking of returns-to-form, Wale's latest preview of his forthcoming Album About Nothing sounds like it could have come from some of his early mixtape sessions. This upbeat, Costanza-laced track drew a lot of automatic Wale hate, but still managed to pull an 86% positive rating and enough interest to land at number 7.
The track has since been pulled, suggesting that the track wasn't meant to be heard just yet.
3) Lil Durk ft. Jeremih - Like Me
Prior to this week, the only thing Lil Durk and Jeremih had in common was a hometown. But now they've dropped "Like Me", a drill n' b hybrid off of Durk's debut album Remember My Name.
The good news is Durk and Jeremih don't have too much in common. RMN has a release date and will be out on 5/12.
2) Rihanna - Bitch Better Have My Money
"Bitch" is the first official single we've heard from Rihanna's as-yet unnamed album (commonly referred to as R8) and it proves that the Bajan princess hasn't gone all the way soft after "FourFiveSeconds". The track made it to number 2 on our charts in a matter of days.
1) Wale ft. Kanye West & Ty Dolla Sign - The Summer League
This track coming in at number one is a testament to star power. There's no other way to explain a track that HNHH readers pure, straight hated landing the top spot.
And those objections weren't without reason. "The Summer League" is a very, very messy track that's done no favors by it's radio-rip status. Still, curiosity over seeing all three names together drove this collaboration to the upper echelons.
