Future and Young Thug strike again, with their surprise new collab "Do It Like" debuting at #1 this week.
By each of their absurdly high standards, it's been somewhat of a quiet year for both Future and Young Thug. They both got to try their hand as A&Rs with the Superfly soundtrack and Slime Language, respectively, and both released relatively brief, but great collections of their own music (Beastmode 2 and On The Rvn). Aside from their respective features on Jay Rock's "King's Dead" and Camila Cabello's "Havana," though, neither were the omnipresent fixture in pop culture that they usually are. They capped off subtle a 2018 with a new collab entitled "Do It Like," which debuts at #1 this week.
Two artists with brand-new albums, 21 Savage and A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie, are tied with most appearances inside the top ten of our TOP 100 chart this week with two apiece. New tracks barely missing out on spots this week include Swae Lee's "Christmas At Swae's (#11), Blueface's "Bleed It" (#12), Kodak Black's "This Forever" (#13), and 6LACK's "Been A While" (#14).
10. Lil Wayne & Ty Dolla $ign Feat. XXXTentacion - Scared of the Dark
Last week's #1 is also the only repeat inside of the top ten this week (in fact, the only Week 2 song in the top 17 spots), with the combination of Weezy, Dolla, and X's star power able to hold on for more views. In its second week out, "Scared of the Dark" is down nine places from #1 to #10.
Earlier this year, Indonesian singer Agnez Mo dropped her single "Overdose" with Chris Brown in tow, and now Juicy J has joined in for a remix. This marks the second time this month that Juice and Breezy have appeared on the same track, with the first instance being Smooky Margielaa's "Flight To Memphis." The TSD remix of "Overdose" debuts at #9.
8. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie - The Reaper
This past week, A Boogie gave us a new full-length by the name of Hoodie SZN, and as previously mentioned, he's landed two of its tracks inside of the top ten this week. The first is "The Reaper," which debuts at #8.
7. 21 Savage Feat. Childish Gambino - Monster
Although they seem like an odd pair on paper, 21 Savage and Childish Gambino have a small existing history together, with 21 providing ad-libs on Gambino's "This Is America" and Gambino (alright, Donald Glover) throwing a few references to 21 into his show Atlanta. Glover just showed up on a cut from 21's new album, I Am > I Was, and the resulting track, "Monster," debuts at #7.
6. Bow Wow - Wish I Never Met Her
2018 marked yet another year in which Bow Wow could be found in tabloid headlines and not many other places. He did, however, somehow manage to get his latest track, "Wish I Never Met Her," into the top ten this week. It debuts at #6.
5. A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie Feat. Tekashi 6ix9ine - Swervin
The second Hoodie SZN cut on this week's list is the Tekashi 6ix9ine-featuring, London on da Track-produced jam called "Swervin." It debuts at #5.
4. 21 Savage Feat. J. Cole - A Lot
Directly following a track featuring Tekashi is a track referencing him. On this album opener from 21's latest, J. Cole hops on for a blazing guest verse that befuddlingly includes a shout-out to the now-incarcerated rapper. "A Lot" debuts at #4.
3. Jhene Aiko - Wasted Love Freestyle 2018
We definitely weren't expecting any new music from Jhene Aiko before the year's end, and especially not a freestyle of all things. Following a quiet year for her, the singer's "Wasted Love Freestyle 2018" debuts at #3.
2. Nipsey Hussle - Perfect Timing
Nip earned himself an under-the-radar, fan favorite W (pretty much indicative of his career) with this year's Victory Lap, and last week he capped off a quietly successful year with a new cut called "Perfect Timing." This one debuts at #2.
1. Future & Young Thug - Do It Like
Throughout the year, Future's been randomly taking to YouTube to upload loosies, some pretty standard cutting room floor fare, others a little more noteworthy. "Do It Like," a joint effort with frequent collaborator/pal Young Thug, is one of the latter. It debuts at #1.
