A bunch of new entries flood this week's top tracks list.
The top tracks lists of the last few weeks got a little stale, with some songs (Drake's "Summer Sixteen," Travi$ Scott's "Uber Everywhere" remix, Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz's "Gotta Lotta") appearing week after week without much in the way of competition showing up to unseat them. Well, that changes this week, where the top nine tracks on the site are all newcomers.
There are a few things that contributed to this influx of VERY HOTTTTTs, namely Young Thug's release of Slime Season 3, Ty Dolla $ign's decision to dump a bunch of Free TC deluxe tracks onto SoundCloud, StreetRunner's (hopefully ongoing) series of Carter III outtakes, and the official start of A$AP Ferg and PartyNextDoor album rollouts. Read on for a complete rundown of the hottest tracks of March's last full week, as seen on our TOP 100 chart.
10. PartyNextDoor - Admire Me
The one holdover from last week's list, PND's "Admire Me" leak certainly isn't as big of a deal as his other track on this list, but it's nothing to scoff at either. Showing that his "Work" songwriting credit was no fluke, the OVO singer delivered another infectiously tropical banger. The song slid down from number two to number ten.
9. Kid Cudi - The Frequency
Old Cudi back? The Lonely Stoner's first track since December's Speedin' Bullet 2 Heaven (an album that no one but Andre 3000 seemed to like) prompted that reaction from many of his day one fans, thanks to some more traditional vocals and production help from two GOOD Music-affiliated legends, Mike Dean and Plain Pat (whattup). No word yet on whether this will appear on Cudi's next project or is just a loosie, but let's hope it ushers in a new era of Old Cudi. It made its Top 100 debut at number nine.
8. Lil Wayne - Let's Talk It Over (Mastered) (Prod. By StreetRunner)
Between Collegrove and some polished versions of previously-leaked Carter III tracks, Weezy's been having a pretty great start to 2016. Following "Trouble," which was posted on SoundCloud in February, StreetRunner dropped another one called "Let's Talk It Over" last week. An ebullient slice of chipmunk soul, this one's a sure winner, and serves as another fresh entry on our Top 100, right above Cudder.
7. A$AP Ferg Feat. Schoolboy Q - Let It Bang
With the official cover art and release date finally arriving last week, A$AP Ferg's Always Strive And Prosper is finally a sure thing, and thank god for that. As a bonus, we also got audio and video of a new collaboration with Schoolboy Q called "Let It Bang," which pairs two of rap's most eccentric voices for one hell of an album cut. The whole site was feeling this one, which made its debut at number seven, and will likely climb up in the week to come.
6. Young Thug Feat. Lil Uzi Vert - Dope
The most-hated track on this week's list (69% user rating with 54 "Make It Stop"s), Young Thug and Uzi Vert's third collab to date-- following "Big Racks" and "Yamborghini Dream"-- clearly also attracted a ton of attention (the song rose up 24 spots last week alone), highlighting the two rappers' controversial/popular dichotomies. "Dope" doesn't offer too much in the way of lyrical fireworks, but it's pretty undeniably a banger. This definitely doesn't sound like a final version, as there's some space left out where Thug's verse should be, so if that ever arrives, watch out.
5. Future - Bitches Gon Tell
Just how successful is Future? Successful enough that anything he drops will end up in our top ten, even if it's just a snippet. "Bitches Gon Tell" appeared on a recent DJ Lil Keem tape, and it's pretty much the counterpoint to EVOL's "Lie To Me," where Fewtch claimed that "Tiarra, and Britney, and Keisha/They gon' lie for me." This time, he's less trusting of women.
4. Ty Dolla $ign Feat. Quavo - Long Time (Prod. By Metro Boomin)
Metro Boomin was behind one of the most underrated cuts on the standard edition of Ty Dolla $ign's Free TC, the Trey Songz duet "Know Ya," so I was super excited when one of the bonus track Ty shared this week carried Young Metro's tag. His beat on "Long Time" is truly a thing to behold (those wood blocks!), and with a stellar Quavo guest verse to boot, this one stands toe-to-toe with the original album's best tracks. With that, the song arrived at number four.
3. Young Thug - Digits (Prod. By London On Da Track)
Slime Season 3 was a big trending topic this weekend, with Thug extending his signature season into Spring 2016, and with it came greater acclaim from users than usual. "Digits" garnered an 82% user rating on HNHH, and when you combine that with the 86% that "With Them" got after it debuted at Kanye's Yeezy 3 event, it looks like even the haters are starting to warm up to his music. Young Thug kicks off the top three at number three.
2. Drake - Sweeterman (Remix) (CDQ)
After a lengthy delay since its original release on OVO Sound Radio's first episode, Drake's remix of Ramriddlez's "Sweeterman" was finally released in its CDQ form. Not much else to say here, other than that a Drake song, whether new, old, or mediocre, is a sure bet to get a ton of views on HNHH, where nine of the top ten most-viewed tracks in the site's history involve him in one way or another.
1. PartyNextDoor Feat. Drake - Come And See Me (Prod. By 40)
... Speaking of which, PND scores his most popular track on HNHH to date with the help of, you guessed it, Drake. The Noah Shebib-produced "Come And See Me" is absolute fire, but what's funny is that Drake's contribution is the least essential part of the track. His verses on this and "Work" were both lackluster at best, but at least he's got the power duo of PND and Rihanna on his side.
