Tory Lanez hasn’t been at the top of our weekly chart since last October, which is quite a long dry spell for him. Back in February, three pre-release Memories Don’t Die tracks made the top ten in one week, but were kept out of the top spot by an Uncle Drew soundtrack cut by A$AP Rocky, Gucci Mane, and 21 Savage. Now almost a year after his last #1, the Future collab “Real Thing,” Tory’s back on top with his recently-released “Keep In Touch,” a track assisted by Bryson Tiller.
For the first time in over a year, we’ve got a weekly chart in which no artist has a repeat appearance. Just one track for everyone this week. New songs barely missing the cut include YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s “Drawing Symbols” (#13), Nicki Minaj and Swae Lee’s “Chun Swae” (#14), Yung Bans, Lil Uzi Vert, and Lil Tracy’s “Let’s Play” (#16), and 24hrs and YG’s “Don’t Mess” (#17).
10. A$AP Ant Feat. A$AP Rocky – Mario Cart
This past week, A$APs Ant and Rocky linked up for a joint track named after a classic Nintendo game. While we’re not sure where “Mario Cart” will land yet, or it’s a single or loosie, it debuts at #10.
9. Migos – Is You Ready
Migos and Mark Wahlberg seem to be an odd pairing, but they’ve got a track on the soundtrack for the actor’s new movie, Mile 22. Their contribution, “Is You Ready,” dropped last week and debuts at #9.
8. 6LACK – Nonchalant
After enjoying breakout success with his debut album a few years back, 6LACK is set to return with a sophomore album called East Atlanta Love Letter later this year. Last week, he shared lead single “Nonchalant,” which debuts at #8, to the excitement of his fans.
7. The Game Feat. Ty Dolla $ign, YG & Jeremih – Down To Fuck
For his latest track, The Game paired up with another one of L.A.’s finest gangster rappers, YG, and threw a top-tier R&B pairing (Ty Dolla $ign and Jeremih) on top for a bedroom jam called “Down To Fuck.” In its second week out, it’s down two spots from #5 to #7.
6. Bun B Feat. T.I. & Big K.R.I.T. – Recognize
Bun hasn’t released an album in five years, but will do so on August 31st with Return of the Trill. Accompanying the release announcement was lead single “Recognize,” featuring T.I. and Big K.R.I.T., which debuts at #6.
5. Wiz Khalifa & Travis Scott – Trippin
Last week, DP Beats released Dponthebeat, a compilation that share a name with his producer tag. Among the new tracks included on there was “Trippin,” a Wiz Khalifa and Travis Scott collaboration that debuts at #5. Read our new interview with the producer here.
4. Skye & Chris Brown – Fairytale
Everyone who’s ever complained “DJ Khaled doesn’t even produce!” was silenced last week when “Fairytale,” a collaboration between Skye and Chris Brown, arrived with production credited to the big man. Despite Skye being relatively unknown at this point, the song debuts at #4.
3. Gunna Feat. Lil Uzi Vert – .223
Gunna’s been having a huge month. After being featured on Travis Scott’s “Yosemite,” one of the most popular songs off of Astroworld, and before showing up on four tracks on Young Thug’s new Slime Language album, he dropped a new collab with Lil Uzi Vert. “.223” debuts at #3.
2. Nicki Minaj Feat. Nas – Sorry
As we all know by now, Nicki Minaj’s Queen rollout hasn’t been going very smoothly at all, and a very small part of that is due to not being able to include this Nas collab on the album because of a sample clearance issue. Funkmaster Flex premiered the unreleased “Sorry” on Hot 97 just after the album’s release two weeks ago, and it’s since been taken down. In its second week out, “Sorry” is up 21 places from #23 to #2.
1. Tory Lanez Feat. Bryson Tiller – Keep In Touch
Lanez gave us a taste of his upcoming Love Me Now? project via this collab with a fellow crooner, Bryson Tiller. In its first week out, “Keep In Touch” has secured a 91% user approval rating and a #1 debut.
