A look at the top of our Top 100.
Very few tracks were able to hang on to their Top 10 spots this week. Fetty Wap was one of few artists to prove he has staying power, if his BET Awards performance didn’t do it for you.
Let’s get to it.
10) Chris Brown – Liqour
A decidedly weak track that sounds like it was ripped via an iPhone mic, but new Breezy is still new Breezy. Chris Brown doesn’t have an interesting enough voice for spaced-out slow jams, but fan interest pushed this one into the top 10 over the protests of the peanut gallery.
9) Ty Dolla $ign ft. Future & Rae Sremmurd – Blasé
One look at the names on this track let’s you know that it’s gonna be liquid turnt. Ty$, Future and The Brothers Rae bring their A game and the result is this excellent party track. It landed at number 9 in its first week.
Meek Mill has had a number of street hits, but now he’s ready to get that Top 40 money (What’s one step above pasta?).
7) Fetty Wap – Ride or Die
The Jersey hitmaker’s take on a grown n’ sexy track fell three spots, but held on for a second week in the Top Ten.
6) Fetty Wap – Boomin’
Fetty has been staying busy the last few weeks. Amid the flurry of toss-offs, freestyles and other tracks, he managed to do a pretty decent impression of Chief Keef.
“Boomin’” landed at number six in its first week on the charts.
5) Meek Mill ft. Chris Brown & French Montana – Poppin’ Remix
This is more like it. Meek and Chris Brown strayed a bit too far outside their signature sound in other tracks this week, but “Poppin’” is right where we need them to be. French Montana is also doing what he does best by nearly derailing the song. The remix of the Rico Richie track fell four spots from the top slot to land at number five this week.
4) Future – News Or Somthn
#MONSTERMONDAY is a gift from the heavens.
Future’s latest finds Hendrix cooling off a bit from his most recent hits, but the lyrics are anything but mellow. This Nard & B-produced track landed at number four in its first week on the charts.
3) French Montana ft. Rick Ross & Lil Wayne – Lose It (Gucci Mane)
Great production and an excellent Weezy verse can work wonders. Case in point, this French Montana track off of Mac And Cheese: The Album. French and the currently incarcerated Rozay receive a major lift courtesy of Tunechi and production by The MeKanics and Kanye West.
“Lose It” came in at number three in its first week.
2) Travi$ Scott – Antidote
Travis Scott dropped an ultra low-key and smooth PBR&B track with no features and it made it to number two. There’s hope yet.
1) The Game ft. Drake – 100
Anything Drake hops on takes this spot by default. But sometimes it’s actually earned.
“100” is classic Game, sounding like it might be a part of the long-promised sequel to Game’s best work. It debuted in the top spot in its first week on the charts.
