XXXTentacion gets his fourth #1 in as many months with his, Lil Wayne, and Ty Dolla $ign's "Scared of the Dark."
We just got XXXTentacion's first posthumous album, but it seems like his fans still want more. In the months since X died, he's hit #1 on our charts four times, with the latest coming in this week via an Into The Spider-Verse soundtrack cut. Following his and Wayne's "Don't Cry," "Arms Around You" and "Bad!," "Scared of the Dark" proves beyond the shadow of a doubt that X is a surefire #1 whenever he drops new music.
X makes two appearances in the top ten this week, as do Offset and Youngboy Never Broke Again. New tracks barely missing out on spots this week include Vince Staples' "Home" (#11), T-Pain's "That's Yo Money" (#13), Curren$y's "Grand" (#14), and Gucci Mane's "Father's Day" (#15).
10. Offset - Red Room
There's still no official release date for Offset's upcoming solo album, but it's clear that people are still clamoring to hear it. Lead single "Red Room" is now on its third week of eligibility on the charts, and it's still inside the top ten, which is rare. In its third week out, the song is down eight places from #2 to #10.
9. TM88 & Southside Feat. Valee & Lil Yachty - Hmmm
808 Mafia mavens TM88 and Southside have paired up for plenty of collaborations in the past, and their vocal guests this time around, Valee and Lil Yachty, are past collaborators as well, previously linking up on "Wombo." The four's new track, "Hmmm," debuts at #9.
8. Ice Cube - Chase Down the Bully
Ice Cube's now debuted two straight tracks inside of the top ten, which is certainly a bit unexpected for him at this point in his career. The second one, "Chase Down the Bully," debuts at #8.
7. Smooky Margielaa Feat. A$AP Rocky, Chris Brown & Juicy J - Flight To Memphis
Last week's #1, the Smooky Margielaa-led track "Flight To Memphis," hangs on for a second week, making it the second of an unusually high three repeat offenders on this week's list. In its second week out, it's down six places from #1 to #7.
Among this year's late-December releases, which inevitably trickle out after every publication's put out their year-end lists, is A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie's Hoodie SZN, which is due out this Friday, December 21. Following previous single "Look Back At It," new track "Startender" debuts at #6.
5. Youngboy Never Broke Again - Valuable Pain
Youngboy has easily had one of the most prolific release schedules of 2018, dropping an album, three EPs, and countless loosies. The latest of the latter category is "Valuable Pain," a new one that showed up online last week. It debuts at #5.
4. Kodak Black Feat. Juice WRLD - MoshPit
Kodak Black put out his latest album, Dying To Live, last Friday. A few days before that, he dropped off one final single, the Juice WRLD-assisted "MoshPit," before sharing the full project. That track debuts at #4.
3. XXXTentacion - Guardian Angel
The first of two XXX tracks on this week's list is off his recent posthumous album, Skins. In its second week out, "Guardian Angel" is up seven places from #10 to #3.
2. Gucci Mane Feat. Youngboy Never Broke Again - Cold Shoulder
Gucci Mane was oddly absent from much of 2018, going against his usually-prolific reputation. But Evil Genius finally arrived two weeks ago, and with it came a few bangers like "Cold Shoulder." The Youngboy-assisted jam debuts at #2.
1. Lil Wayne & Ty Dolla $ign Feat. XXXTentacion - Scared of the Dark
By himself, Lil Wayne's usually a pretty safe bet for a #1 debut. Ditto for XXXTentacion. So throw those two together, sprinkle some Ty Dolla $ign on top, and you've got a surefire recipe for success. Their contribution to the Spider Man: Into the Spider-Verse soundtrack, "Scared of the Dark," debuts at #1.
