Top Tracks: August 17 - August 23
The tidal wave of Drake that has washed over the Top 10 is finally, thankfully receding.
Much like low tide, a lingering stench of Drizzy still remains, but at least there are no more songs in the Top 10 twice.
Let’s get to it.
10) MPA Duke ft. Travi$ Scott - On My Vibe
Travi$ Scott-produced with a Scott verse to boot? This is top 10 material, for sure. Even if it was the first time they had heard of MPA Duke, HNHH readers glommed onto this track to push it to #10 in its first week on the charts.
9) Drake - Back To Back (Meek Diss)
The crest of the receding wave. But we’ve got a ways to go before we hit the trough.
“Back To Back” fell six spots in its fourth week on the charts, but managed to remain in the Top 10 at #9.
8) Chief Keef - Bouncin’
“Bouncin’” proves that Keef didn’t use everything he had on the album’s “first disc.” “Bouncin'" came in at #8 in its debut week.
7) Waka Flocka -Workin’
Waka is still around and still bringing the same old aggressive trap shit that he helped put on the map. It’s a dirty, thankless job but somebody’s got to do it. Where would audio equipment stores be if Waka didn’t show up to rattle subs every once in a while?
“Workin’” came in at #7 in its debut week.
6) BJ The Chicago Kid ft. Chance The Rapper and Buddy - Church
There are few things better in 2015 than the smooth, soulful rap music coming from all manner of Chicago artists.
BJ The Chicago Kid’s “Church” is the latest addition to the canon, aided along with a starpower boost from Chance The Rapper. The track hopped 14 spots to land at #6 in its second week.
5) 2 Chainz ft. Wiz Khalifa - A Milli Billi Trilli
4) Chief Keef ft. A$AP Rocky - Superheroes
Bang 3 (‘s first disc) is starting to wane. The A$AP Rocky assist almost certainly helped this Keef toward the top, but it wasn’t enough to sustain the top spot for more than a week.
“Superheroes” dropped 3 spots to land at #4 in its fourth week on the chart.
3) 50 Cent - 9 Shots
Turns out people were fiending for Old Curtis. This throwback-sounding Fif track climbed one spot in its second week to land at #3.
2) Drake - Hotline Bling (Cha Cha Remix)
The last vestige of Drake’s month-long domination. It’s actually a pretty great song, but y’all knew that already.
“Hotline Bling” didn’t budge an inch from last week.
It’s still #2 in its fourth week.
1) Mac Miller - Break The Law
This GO:OD A.M. track grabbed hold of readers attention and wouldn’t let loose.
It jumped to the top in its first week on the charts.
