The success of "Bodak Yellow" reverberates through our chart, where Cardi B and Kodak Black both make appearances.
Yesterday, Cardi B became the first solo female rapper to have a #1 single since Lauryn Hill did it in 1998. "Bodak Yellow" is a surprising success story for a number of reasons, one of which is its origins as a riff on Kodak Black's breakout 2015 hit "No Flockin." On our charts this week, a remix of "Bodak" featuring none other than Kodak himself appears, as well as a sequel to "No Flockin" entitled "Bodak Orange."
Kodak is the only artist who appears more than once this week. New tracks barely missing out on charting this week include Russ' "Wife You Up" (#11), Young Thug and Carnage's "Liger" (#12), Dame D.O.L.L.A. and Lil Wayne's "Run It Up" (#13), and Ty Dolla $ign's "Message in a Bottle" (#15).
10. Ty Dolla $ign Feat. Jeremih - Dawsin's Breek
One of two new tracks that Ty shared from his upcoming Beach House 3 album (which now has an official release date) last week, the oddly-titled "Dawsin's Breek" features stellar work from Jeremih and producer Mike Will Made It. This one debuts at #10.
9. Migos Feat. Meek Mill - Contagious
This recently-leaked track actually dates back several years, but people were still clearly excited to hear what Meek and Migos could cook up together. "Contagious" debuted all the way up at #2 last week, and in its second week out, is down seven places to finish at #9.
8. WizKid Feat. Future - Everytime
Nigerian sensation WizKid has seen his biggest successes on our site when pairing off with American artists, and this time is no different. His first single since his major label debut dropped in June, "Everytime" finds him linking up with Future and debuting at #8.
7. Post Malone Feat. 21 Savage - Rockstar
Apart from "Bodak Yellow," the biggest story on the Billboard's charts this week is that "Rockstar," Post Malone's latest single, has made its debut all the way up at #2, displacing Taylor Swift's "Look What You Made Me Do" a further spot down to #3. This bodes well for him, as does "Rockstar"'s performance on our charts, where it debuted at #1 last week and hangs onto a top ten spot in its second week out, falling six places to #7.
6. Cardi B Feat. Kodak Black - Bodak Yellow (Remix)
No doubt in a push for "Bodak Yellow" to reach #1, Cardi unveiled the official remix a few days before chart eligibilty ended last week. Featuring the originator of the flow she borrows for the smash hit, this one was well-deserved, if not well-recieved (only getting a 34% audience approval rating). Nevertheless, the remix debuts at #6.
5. Tory Lanez - Shooters
It's been an uncharacteristically long while since we've heard from Tory, but that's because he's been putting the finishing touches on his sophomore album. "Shooters" is the lead single from the yet-to-be-titled follow-up to I Told You, which apparently won't feature any samples. This one debuts at #5.
4. Juicy J Feat. A$AP Rocky & $UICIDEBOY$ - Freaky
Juicy J shared his Highly Intoxicated tape last week, and a definite highlight was "Freaky," a song that features frequent collaborator A$AP Rocky as well as Three 6 Mafia-revering newcomers $UICIDEBOY$. "Freaky" debuts at #4.
3. PartyNextDoor - Own Up to Your Shit
PND's had at least one song on every one of our weekly charts for at least the past two months. That's crazy. His latest loosie to make the cut is "Own Up to Your Shit," which debuts at #3.
2. Metro Boomin Feat. Travi$ Scott - Blue Pill
Though we're still scant on details, Metro Boomin may still be planning his solo debut album, and after celebrating his birthday this past week, he dropped off another big single to follow up "No Complaints." "Blue Pill" features frequent collaborator Travi$ Scott, and it debuts at #2.
1. Kodak Black - No Flockin 2 (Bodak Orange)
Kodak also had the sense to time up his "No Flockin" sequel with the success of "Bodak Yellow," but it doesn't look like this will be a hit of any kind. It's just a freestyle over the original beat, and thusly, it only received a paltry 25% audience approval rating. Still, it got people interested, making its debut at #1.
