Tyga and Kanye West break into the number one spot this week.
After being bombarded with new projects by Run The Jewels, Chief Keef, and Tory Lanez (twice) all within the first week of the new year, we've hit a bit of a lull in the album release cycle in early-to-mid January. Things will pick up again with Migos' Culture dropping on the 27th, and Big Sean's I Decided one week after that, but for now, it's a good time for other artists to drop new tracks into an otherwise uncrowded market.
Leading the way with three appearances again this week is Future, and following him up are Rick Ross, Tory Lanez, Trey Songz, and Chris Brown, all of whom clock in with two appearances apiece. New tracks barely missing out on a spot on this week's list include Chris Brown, Young Lo, and Young Black's "500 Wayz," August Alsina's "Drugs," Young Dolph and Lil Yachty's "Bagg," and Fetty Wap and Monty's "Way You Are (King Zoo)."
10. DJ Drama Feat. Lil Wayne - Intro
25 weeks after the release of DJ Drama's Quality Street Music 2, no one's really talking about the album any more, but one thing from it has lived on. The Lil Wayne-assisted "Intro," which many called Weezy's best verse of 2016, is still holding on in our Top Tracks list. In its 25th week out, the track is down two places from #8 to #10.
9. Future - Buy Love
Users aren't loving Future's "Buy Love," which currently sits at a paltry 65% approval rating, and that's also reflected in how it performed on the chart in its second week out. After debuting at #1 last week, this time it's down a full eight spots from #1 to #9.
8. Migos - T-Shirt
We're now a little over two weeks away from the release of Migos' hotly-anticipated sophomore album, Culture, and amping up the excitement last week was an (Oscar-worthy?) video for a new track called "T-Shirt." Going full Revenant, the three Migos come through with something that can stand toe-to-toe with "Bad N Boujee," which should be hitting #1 on the actual charts this week. "T-Shirt" debuts at #8.
7. Future Feat. Rick Ross - That's A Check (Prod. By 808 Mafia)
Future's other track from two weeks ago didn't debut as high as "Buy Love," and it currently only has about a quarter of that song's YouTube views, but on our charts, it's held on a bit better. After debuting at #2 last week, it's only down five places in its second week out, coming in at #7.
6. Tory Lanez Feat. Jacquees - Slow Grind
The first of two new T-Lanez songs to impact on our charts this week is the Jacquees-featuring "Slow Grind," which is off of Chixtape 4, one of two tapes the Toronto singer/rapper dropped in the early hours of the new year. As Lanez is fond of doing, this one flips a classic '90s R&B track, Pretty Ricky's "Grind With Me," into something more modern. "Slow Grind" debuts at #6.
5. Fabolous & Trey Songz - Bad & Boujee (Remix)
Although Twitter mercilessly roasted DatPiff for acting like they had the next Watch The Throne on deck only to give us a tape full of remixes by... Fabolous and Trey Songz... Trappy New Years did contain some jams, one of wich was this remix of Migos' "Bad & Boujee." Loso and Trey's take on the future #1 hit makes its debut at #5.
4. Tory Lanez Feat. ASAP Ferg - Bal Harbour (Prod. By C-Sick)
Coming in as the representative from Tory Lanez's *other* 2017 release, The New Toronto 2, is "Bal Harbour," a track that features Lanez's 2016 tourmate A$AP Ferg. This one shows Fargo's rappier side, and definitely receives a chart boost thanks to Ferg's star power. "Bal Harbour" debuts at #4.
3. DJ Khaled Feat. Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, August Alsina, Jeremih, Future & Rick Ross - Do You Mind
Go away already! It's now been 25 weeks since I've run an edition of Top Tracks that didn't feature this gargantuan Khaled track, and I'm getting tired of typing out the title every time. In its 24th week out, "Do You Mind" holds steady at #3.
2. Chris Brown Feat. Young Thug & Trey Songz - Dat Night
Breezy was mostly in the news last week for his beef with Soulja Boy, which has now somehow dragged in opportunists Floyd Mayweather, 50 Cent, and Mike Tyson into the fray, but he also released some music a few days prior. The Young Thug and Trey Songz-assisted "Dat Night" arrived too late to make it onto last week''s list, so in its second week out, it's up a whopping 47 places from #49 to #2.
1. Tyga Feat. Kanye West - Feel Me
Also arriving quite late two weeks ago was Tyga and Kanye West's "Feel Me," which nevertheless debuted at #7 last week thanks to this being the first new West verse in quite a while. Now with a full weeks of views behind it, the track becomes Tyga's first #1 since last May's "Cash Money."
