Ella Mai scores her first Top Ten appearance with the Nicki Minaj and Quavo-assisted "Boo'd Up" remix.
Ella Mai's "Boo'd Up" has been bubbling since February of last year, when the British singer first released her debut single. Back in April, it was released officially as a single in the states, after which it began climbing up the charts. Just last week, an official remix arrived featuring Nicki Minaj and Quavo, which has driven the song even further into the spotlight.
This week, Dave East and Offset are the only artists with multiple appearances in the Top Ten. New songs barely missing out on spots include Young M.A.'s "Petty Wap" (#11), Iggy Azalea and Tyga's "Kream" (#12), Lil Pump's "Drug Addicts" (#13), and Doe Boy and Future's "Back in My Bag" (#14).
10. Dave East - I'm Good Cuz, Enjoy (Detox)
This past week, Harlem's Dave East became embroiled in a beef with The Bronx's Tray Pizzy, with the latter kicking thing off with a diss track entitled "Retribution." East soon fired back with "I'm Good Cuz, Enjoy (Detox)," which debuts at #10.
9. Drake Feat. PartyNextDoor - Ratchet Happy Birthday
Two Fridays ago, as everyone obviously knows by now, Drake released his album Scorpion. Two tracks from it charted last week, and this week, a third has cracked the Top Ten. The PartyNextDoor-assisted "Ratchet Happy Birthday" debuts at #9.
8. YesJulz Feat. BlocBoy JB - Goin Crazy
I guess we should've seen this coming? This past week, party promoter YesJulz dropped her debut single, "Goin Crazy," which also features BlocBoy JB. Since then, it's been removed from SoundCloud, but not before it racked up an abysmal 12% user approval rating. Still, it debuts at #8.
7. Fabolous - Boo'd Up (Remix)
One of three remixes of Ella Mai's "Boo'd Up" to chart this week, Fabolous' take on the ascendant single is the lowest-charting of the bunch. His solo take on the hit song debuts at #7.
6. Tee Grizzley Feat. Offset - Untitled
Detroit's Tee Grizzley just released a project a few months ago, but apparently he's got more heat on the way. He's been teasing a new project, and just last week, he dropped off a mysterious untitled track featuring Offset. This one debuts at #6.
5. T-Pain - Boo'd Up (Remix)
Second among our three remixes of "Boo'd Up" in the Top Ten this week, T-Pain's take on the hit has undoubtedly the best user rating, tallying a 93% over the week. This one debuts at #5.
4. Dave East Feat. Rick Ross - Fresh Prince of Belaire
Dave East's second entry of the week is a much more commercially-focused offering than "I'm Good Cuz, Enjoy (Detox)." The Rozay-assisted "Fresh Prince of Belaire" not only promotes the Maybach maven's wine company, but also furthers East's pop accessibility. It debuts at #4.
3. Lil Yachty Feat. Cardi B & Offset - Who Want the Smoke?
When Lil Yachty first previewed a snippet of "Who Want the Smoke," BlocBoy JB was the featured artist. Now that the full version has arrived, rap power couple Offset and Cardi B appear to have replaced the Memphis spitter as the guests on the new single. This one debuts at #3.
2. Nav - Me and My Bitch
This past week, someone leaked an unreleased Nav song that was produced by Metro Boomin. Clearly pissed off by this, Nav responded with an official version of "Me and My Bitch" soon thereafter. This official cut debuts at #2.
1. Ella Mai Feat. Nicki Minaj & Quavo - Boo'd Up (Remix)
The official remix of Ella Mai's "Boo'd Up" might not have the user rating of the Fabolous and T-Pain versions (both over 90%), but what it does have is clicks. The Nicki Minaj and Quavo-assisted version has over double the views of any other song on this week's list, and thusly it debuts at #1.
