Eminem leads a particularly big week of Top Tracks.
Well clearly the big news today is the announcement of Drake's new project More Life, and the ensuing tracks that the 6 God dropped on OVO Sound last night. Dude can still easily dominate the conversation whenever he wants to. But as the first of those four new tracks, "Two Birds One Stone," didn't arrive until after 8 PM yesterday, it was too late for any of them to rack up enough views to land on this week's Top Tracks list. Expect all four to show up next week, hopefully knocking off a couple of tracks that just won't die.
2 Chainz handily tops the list with three appearances this week, with one as a lead artist, one as a guest, and one co-credited with Big Sean. Quavo and Future are the only other artists with multiple appearances. New tracks barely missing out on the cut include Kodak Black's "Chances" (#11), both the radio rip and CDQ of Jeezy and French Montana's "Going Crazy" (#12 and #13, respectively), and Rick Ross, Juicy J, Big K.R.I.T., and Too Short's "Freaky Hoe" (#14).
10. Mac Miller Feat. Anderson .Paak - Dang!
Now an insane 13 weeks removed from its original release, "Dang!" is one of two July tracks that still somehow manages to hold on. It dropped out of the race for a few weeks early on, but for the past eight or so, it's been consistently hovering towards the bottom of the Top Ten. This time, it holds at the bottom spot.
9. Migos - Pull Up
We still don't have the details on Migos' sophomore album, CULTURE, but after going after their label for delaying the project last week, the trio shared a new track for their ravenous fans. There's no telling whether "Pull Up" is planned as an album track or an outtake, but with a top ten debut and a user rating of 84%, the group would probably be wise to push it as a single. "Pull Up" debuts at #9.
8. DJ Khaled Feat. Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Future, August Alsina, Jeremih & Rick Ross - Do You Mind
Go away already! For thirteen weeks straight now I've had to write a new blurb about this Major Key single, and frankly I've run out of interesting things to say about it. Nothing against the track itself, but I'm crossing my fingers for the next week straight in hopes that a new Drizzy track will knock "Do You Mind" off. In its thirteenth week out, the track falls one spot from #7 to #8.
7. YFN Lucci Feat. 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne - Key To The Streets (Remix)
Here's a track that's now been around almost half as long as "Dang!" and "Do You Mind," and before this week never appeared below #6. The ColleGrove remix of "Key To The Streets" looks like it's on its way out, but it's been a massive success for the young Atlantan YFN Lucci. In its sixth week out, this remix falls one spot from #6 to #7.
6. Bryson Tiller - Let Me Explain
Last week Young Tiller saw his first number one debut with his first new solo joint since last year's TrapSoul, and unsurprisingly "Let Me Explain" has held on for another week of chart appearances. Hopefully this means there's a new album in the works, and if so, we might be talking about Tiller topping a much bigger, more nationally-recognized chart. In its second week out, "Let Me Explain" falls five places from #1 to #6.
5. Big Sean & 2 Chainz - Light It Up
The last of this week's repeat performers, "Light It Up" was shared as a joint track by the two guys who assisted Drake on "All Me," and taken from the soundtrack to Kevin Hart's new standup film, of all things. Nevertheless, the track has proven insanely popular, with only 13 dislikes from the entire HNHH community. That's pretty rare for such a huge track. In its second week out, "Light It Up" slips three places from #2 to #5.
Last week marked A$AP Ferg's 28th birthday, and the Harlem spitter celebrated by liberating a new remix of his Always Strive And Prosper single "New Level." Future's still on board for hook duties, and joining him are two of his friends and close collaborators, A$AP Rocky and Lil Uzi Vert. In its first week out, the "New Level" remix debuts at #4.
3. 2 Chainz Feat. Gucci Mane & Quavo - Good Drank
Easily the highest-rated song of the week with a 95% user approval score, this collab between three of Atlanta's top talents is certifiably, undeniably fire. Mike Dean provides the beat for this all-star cut, and all I can say is that I want an entire album of this. "Good Drank" debuts at #3.
2. Travis Scott - Swang (Remix)
The third and final remix to appear on this week's list is Travis Scott's redo of Rae Sremmurd's "Swang," which was originally a bonus track on this summer's SremmLife 2. Chase B debuted the track on his ".Wav" radio mix last week, with new production coming from P-Nazty. Hopefully we get a collab between La Flame, Swae Lee, and Slim Jimmi soon. This "Swang" remix debuts at #2.
1. Eminem - Campaign Speech
And now the big one. "Campaign Speech" is huge for a number of reasons, mainly that it's the first Eminem song in quite some time, but also because it's eight minutes long and contains some powerful political themes. Em says he's working on a new album, and if it's filled with stuff this weighty and impactful, it's sure to be a wild ride. "Campaign Speech" debuts at #1.
