"Upscale," a posse cut from three of Atlanta's biggest talents— Future, Young Thug, and Quavo— debuts at #1.
Well, as of right now (1AM Eastern time) it doesn't look like Young Thug delivered on his promise to give us Slime Language on July 15th. Go-to engineer Alex Tumay tweeted (then deleted) that he was delayed getting to mixing sessions, and perhaps that's the reason for the hold up. That said, the past 24 hours have shown us that Thug is indeed in the studio with Tumay, and that Chance The Rapper is also there. While we wait, we've got a song that features Thug at #1 this week.
Ascendant Chicago star Juice WRLD is the only artist to notch more than one appearance in the Top 10 this week, finishing with two. New tracks barely missing out on spots this week include Mac Miller's "Self Care" (#11), Childish Gambino's "Summertime Magic" (#12), Lloyd's "Caramel" (#13), and Lil Kim's "Nasty One" (#14).
10. Tommie Feat. Spice - Imma Get It
Cardi B's ascent from reality star to chart-topping rapper was sure to inspire others to make the leap. This week, actress/model/rapper Tommie Lee, who like Cardi starred on Love & Hip Hop, dropped her debut single. "Imma Get It" features dancehall artist Spice and debuts at #10.
9. T-Pain - Boo'd Up (Remix)
The only repeat from last week's Top 10 is one of three new versions of Ella Mai's sleeper hit "Boo'd Up" that appeared on last week's list. T-Pain's remix seems to be the consensus favorite as its user approval sits at 93% and it seems to have more longevity than its competitors. His take on the hit is down four places, from #5 to #9, in its second week out.
8. Denzel Curry - Clout Cobain
This past week, Denzel Curry officially announced his long-awaited follow-up to 2016's Imperial. He let us know that TA13OO will arrive in three separate sections starting on July 25, and also shared a lead single in the form of "Clout Cobain." This first taste of TA13OO debuts at #8.
7. Juice WRLD - Demon Love
Well what do you know, Juice WRLD's singing about a relationship gone wrong and blaming it on the girl. Back for the second time following his Goodbye & Good Riddance project— the first time being his "Legends" tribute track— Juice lapses back into his topical comfort zone on this new loosie. "Demon Love" debuts at #7.
6. Fabolous Feat. Ty Dolla $ign - Ooh Yea
Fabolous had another one of the previously-mentioned "Boo'd UP" remixes on last week's Top 10, and he's back on our list for a second consecutive week with this new Ty Dolla $ign-assisted single. "Ooh Yea" debuts at #6.
5. Childish Gambino - Feels Like Summer
Like Juice WRLD, Childish Gambino also gave us two new tracks this past week. Both have titles that reference summer, and stand out in stark contrast to his previous offering, "This Is America." "Feels Like Summer" debuts at #5.
4. Juice WRLD Feat. Lil Uzi Vert - Wasted
Juice's second new track of the week has the feeling of a more official single, both thanks to its artwork and an appearance by Lil Uzi Vert. "Wasted" takes a Grand Theft Auto joke and a distorted Uzi verse and rides it all the way to a #4 debut.
3. Bow Wow Feat. Diddy - WOAH
These days, Bow Wow's more frequently on HNHH for his headline-making antics than his music, but he scores a rare hit with the Diddy-assisted "WOAH." Perhaps meant for Greenlight 6, a mixtape that was supposed to drop in May but has been interminably delayed ever since, this one debuts at #3.
2. Murda Beatz Feat. Yung Bans, Lil Yachty & Ski Mask the Slump God - Fortnite
Before we get to a posse cut from a few of Southern rap's established stars, we have this one from three of the region's younger talents. "Fortnite" flips music from the soundtrack of the titular video game, which has become extremely popular with high-profile rappers in the past few months. The Murda Beatz-helmed collab debuts at #2.
1. Future Feat. Young Thug & Quavo - Upscale
We have no idea how Future, Thugger, and Quavo ended up rhyming together over Cardi B's "Drip" (which originally featured all three Migos), but we're not mad about it. "Upscale," as this official new track is titled, is a rare chance to see all three loosen up and kick verses. It debuts at #1.
