Chance The Rapper and Young Thug's recent collab rises to #1 in its second week out.
Especially in the summer, when everybody seems like they're trying to have the hot song of the minute, repeat appearances on our Top Ten are rare. There's simply so much new material every week that it's hard to pay attention to one batch of tracks once the next arrives, and on and on. That said, we've got a rare occurrence this week: over half of our list is Week 2 tracks. Two weeks ago was a crazy week, apparently.
Ty Dolla Sign, Nav, and Metro Boomin are the only artists with multiple appearances this week, each nabbing two apiece. New tracks barely missing out on spots this week include Tyler The Creator's "Ain't Got Time," Trae Tha Truth and Post Malone's "To Late" (#14), Lil Baby and Young Thug's "Pink Slip" (#15), and Lloyd Banks' "Overload" (#17).
10. Kevin Gates - No Love
Dreka Gates, wife of Kevin, recently revealed that she's putting together his next album while he's behind bars. The announcement was shortly followed by "No Love," the first proper Gates solo track we've gotten since April's "What If" (he was also on the Fate of the Furious soundtrack). The new track, hopefully a sign of an impending Gates album, debuts at #1.
9. WizKid Feat. Ty Dolla Sign - One For Me
WizKid has appeared in our Top Ten several times now, but up until this point, he'd never done it without Drake, with whom he's collaborated frequently since the Canadian MC hopped on his track "Ojuelegba." But after releasing the album Sounds from the Other Side two weeks ago, he finally gets here on his own volition (or, considering Ty Dolla Sign's presence on "One For Me," at least without Drake's help for once). This track debuted just before the eligibility period ended for last week's Top Tracks, so in its second week out, "One For Me" is up 59 spots from #68 to #9.
8. Nav - Perfect Timing (Intro)
The jury's still out on Nav after his self-titled debut drew mixed reviews earlier this year, but thus far, his new release with Metro Boomin seems to be faring a bit better. The Perfect Timing intro track was one of two teasers that dropped before the album arrived last Friday, and in its second week on the chart it's down four spots from #4 to #8.
7. Meek Mill - Issues
Meek's Wins And Losses arrived last week, and although there were a few more star-studded cuts from it that hit our chart this week, the pre-release track "Issues" is the only one that made the top ten, remaining on here for a second week in a row. Despite the fact that it dropped early in the week two weeks ago, it's actually up after ten days of eligibility, rising three spots from #10 to #7 in its second week out.
6. Ty Dolla Sign Feat. Lil Wayne & The-Dream - Love U Better
The stacked "Love U Better" is the last of three consecutive repeat performers, and four consecutive Week 2 tracks, in the bottom half of this week's Top Ten. Despite falling from #1 in its second showing, it's the highest-rated track for a second week in a row, again finishing with 92% user approval. "Love U Better" is down five spots to finish at #6.
5. Nav Feat. Playboi Carti & Offset - Minute
Unlike Meek, Nav was able to finagle an album cut off of a release from last week into the ensuing Top Ten. The credit should definitely go to Carti and Offset, arguably ATL's hottest commodities in Summer 2017, whose presence definitely got people otherwise uninterested in Nav to click on this track. "Minute" debuts at #5.
4. Jay 305 Feat. Travis Scott - Why You So Nasty?
Along with Carti and Offset, Travis Scott is another artist who'll get most peoples' clicks these days, even if he's just gifting a feature to an artist as unfamiliar with our Top Ten as Jay 305 is. Trav fans definitely weren't feeling "Why You So Nasty?", a cut from Jay's new album, as users collectively awarded it a paltry 43%. Even still, "Why You So Nasty?" debuts at #4.
3. Lil Uzi Vert - Alone Time
The penultimate repeat appearance in a big week for such things, "Alone Time" preceded a new dump of Uzi tracks, and was the clear favorite over the other song it arrived with, "Repercussions." Although appearing to be a leak, it hasn't yet been removed from the unofficial Youtube channel that posted it, which may speak to Uzi's recent turmoil with his label bosses/ex-benefactors DJ Drama and Don Cannon. In its second week out, "Alone Time" holds steady at #3.
2. Tory Lanez Feat. Trey Songz - Wild Thoughts (Swave Session)
Tory's well known for remixing and/or freestyling over others' songs at this point, but rarely does he bring another top-tier R&B talent along for the ride. Trigga's the man this time around, and together the pair turned in a well-received (90% user approval) version of DJ Khaled, Rihanna, and Bryson Tiller's "Wild Thoughts." Their "Swave Session" debuts at #2.
1. Chance The Rapper Feat. Young Thug - Big B's
It's rare for tracks to appear at #1 in their second week out, but even rarer for Chance The Rapper and Young Thug to collaborate. Their Soundcloud-repping "Big B's" is up six spots, from #7 to #1, in its second go in our Top Ten.
