After a rare week of absence from our top ten, Future's back on top with his new single "Absolutely Going Brazy."
For three weeks straight from February into March, Future was the artist with the most appearances in each respective weekly Top Ten, and even got himself a pair of #1s. Last week, thank in part to a complete A Boggie Wit Da Hoodie takeover (securing four of 10 spots on the list), Future was absent. Now he's back where he belongs with another huge week.
Tying Future's three appearances is Quavo, who scores two as a solo guest and one as one-third of Migos. Behind them, DJ Esco and Rich The Kid appear twice each. New tracks barely missing out on spots this week include Young Thug's "Back Bone" (#11), London Jae and Travis Scott's "Vodka" (#12), Smokepurpp, Murda Beatz, Lil Yachty, and Offset's "Do Not Disturb" (#14), and Eric Bellinger's "Yikes" (#15).
10. DJ Esco Feat. Nas & Future - Walk Thru
This past Friday, DJ Esco released Kolorblind, his first tape in almost two years. In addition to the other song from it that appears on this week's chart, the Nas and Future-assisted "Walk Thru" was one of the lead singles. This one debuts at #10.
Mike Will's obviously spent most of 2018 gearing up for Rae Sremmurd's upcoming triple album, but he also found the time to put together a massive single that, as of right now, isn't attached to any project. "Aries (YuGo) Part 2" has the unbelievably stacked lineup of Big Sean, Pharrell, Quavo, and Rae Sremm, and it debuts at #9.
8. Ty Dolla $ign Feat. Gucci Mane & Quavo - Pineapple
On the subject of new, star-powered singles that aren't attached to projects, Ty Dolla $ign's latest also fits the bill. "Pineapple," which features Gucci Mane and Quavo, was once rumored to be included on Beach House 3, but that's clearly not the case now. It debuts at #8.
7. Rich The Kid - Dead Friends
Years after he got his start, Rich The Kid finally released his debut album, The World is Yours, last week. For its closing track, he chose "Dead Friends," a Lil Uzi Vert diss track, which is certainly a weird choice. This one debuts at #7.
6. Cardi B - Be Careful
Cardi B's debut album, Invasion of Privacy, is almost here, and last week we got another taste of it. "Be Careful" is very different from her boisterous previous singles "Bodak Yellow" and "Bartier Cardi" in that it's most about getting cheated on. This one debuts at #6.
5. DJ Esco Feat. Future & Schoolboy Q - Code of Honour
The first track we heard from Kolorblind, "Code of Honour" features the intriguing pairing of Schoolboy Q and Future. THis one fared pretty well on the site, garnering an 88% user rating and a #5 debut.
4. Rich The Kid Feat. Lil Wayne - End of Discussion
Even more so than Future appearances, Lil Wayne verses are almost always guaranteed to chart, so Rich The Kid has scored big with "End of Discussion," another one of his album cuts. Weezy's presence racks this song up a 95% approval rating and a #4 debut.
3. Migos - Fucking Up Profits
We just got an hour and 45 minutes of new Migos music barely two months ago on Culture II, but it looks like people still want more. "Fucking Up Profits" is taken from Birdman's new biographical project Before Anythang, and it debuts at #3.
2. A$AP Rocky Feat. BlocBoy JB - Bad Company
Rocky's kept completely mum about his upcoming album, but he has blessed us with a smattering of new music. The last three tracks we got were all very unexpected in character, so his return to normalcy on "Bad Company" should be a relief for fans. This BlocBoy JB-assisted track debuts at #2.
1. Future - Absolutely Going Brazy
With the exception of last month's "I.C.W.N.T.," all of Future's 2018 output has come on other artists' songs, but he returned with another solo cut last week. "Absolutely Going Brazy" is brief— exactly two minutes in length— but clearly anticipated by fans. It debuts at #1.
