A Young Thug leak tops this week's list.
It's shaping up to be a pretty crazy week, what with new Joey Badass and Kendrick Lamar albums supposedly on the way on Friday. Both artists shared new tracks last week, and naturally, both appear in the top 3 on this week's list of Top Tracks. I, for one, can't wait to hear what the rest of their albums have in store.
It's a pretty eclectic week otherwise, as Kendrick is the only artist with multiple appearances on the list. New tracks barely missing out on spots include Calvin Harris, Young Thug, Pharrell, and Ariana Grande's "Heatstroke" (#11), HoodyBaby and Lil Wayne's "First Class" (#13), Ludacris and Ty Dolla $ign's "Vitamin D" (#14), and Bone Thugs-N-Harmony and Stephen Marley's "Coming Home" (#15).
10. YG - Pop It, Shake It
Generally speaking, YG gets pretty good ratings on this site, so it's a little shocking that his new track only garnered a 55% user rating. The "Back That Azz Up"-style strip club anthem "Pop It, Shake It" was produced by Mr. 4hunnid's onetime right hand man, DJ Mustard, so perhaps some people are tired of the collaborative effort and want to hear YG branch out in new directions. Whatever the case, "Pop It, Shake It" debuts at #10.
9. DJ Holiday Feat. 2 Chainz - Wassup Wit It
2 Chainz has been on an 18-month-long hot streak, to the extent that DJ Holiday track featuring him now has the juice to make our top ten. "Wassup Wit It" doesn't reinvent the wheel, but Tity 2 Necklace lives up to his rep and comes through with some unbeatable flows and one-liners. "Wassup Wit It" debuts at #9.
8. Logic - Everybody
Last week, Logic (wisely) announced that he was changing the name of his upcoming AfricAryaN project to Everybody, and also shared the Incredible True Story follow-up's release date, May 5th. We also received the title track, a propulsive, backing vocal-accented cut that's already gotten over two million views on YouTube. "Everybody" debuts at #8.
7. Kendrick Lamar - The Heart Part 4
There are only two repeat tracks from last week's list this time around, one of which should be pretty easy to guess if you follow Top Tracks every week, the other of which is Kendrick Lamar's "The Heart Part 4," which debuted at #1 last week. Now that we're clearly in K Dot Album Season, this track's lost a bit of its hype, but you can't really deny that the Compton MC raps his ass off here. In its second week out, "The Heart Part 4" is down six spots from #1 to #7.
6. Desiigner - Outlet
Another week with this Desiigner track in our Top Ten! Although the Brooklyn rapper's latest, the song "Holy Ghost," only lasted one week in the Top Ten, this early February track is still going, making it easily the longest-tenured track on our list since DJ Khaled's "Do You Mind." In its eighth week out, "Outlet" falls two spots from #4 to #6.
5. HoodyBaby Feat. Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, Quavo & Gudda Gudda - Flexing
HoodyBaby is a rapper who's basically only well known for his connection to Lil Wayne. Need proof? His recent mixtape Kitchen 24: Slangin' Off Key got around 25,000 views in its first week out, whereas this track, one of three featuring Lil Wayne, got over 53,000 views. "Flexing," which also features Chris Brown, Quavo, and Gudda Gudda, debuts at #5.
4. WizKid Feat. Drake - Come Closer
Outside of YG's new track, the lowest-rated song on this list is WizKid's new joint with Drake, "Come Closer." Artists who hail from outside of North America don't usually fare well on HNHH, and this is no exception with a 66% rating that even Drizzy couldn't boost. "Come Closer" debuts at #4.
3. Joey Badass Feat. Schoolboy Q - Rockabye Baby
We're less than a week away from "Global Hip Hop Appreciation Day," AKA the release date of Joey Badass and (probably) Kendrick Lamar's new albums. Joey gave us the white-hot All AmeriKKKan Badass cut "Rockabye Baby" last week, which features stirring verses from him and Schoolboy Q. "Rockabye Baby" debuts at #3.
2. Kendrick Lamar - HUMBLE.
Next up is the latest track by the other artist dropping an album at the end of this week, Kendrick Lamar. "HUMBLE." probably would top this list had it dropped earlier than Thursday evening, but still, a #2 debut ain't bad. Look for "HUMBLE." to stick around next week.
1. Young Thug - Best Thing Of All Time
Sometimes it's not the most popular or the most noteworthy track of the week that hits #1; sometimes it's the most sought-after. Young Thug's "Best Thing Of All Time" was clearly an unauthorized leak, as it got removed from the 'net within a few days of releasing. That hasn't stopped people from searching it though. "Best Thing Of All Time" debuts at #1.
