After months delays, drama, and unficial leaks, Lil Uzi Vert finally debuted two new singles last week. “Sanguine Paradise” and “That’s A Rack” arrived on streaming services nearly simultaneously, causing quite the commotion on the web. HNHH wasn’t exempt from the buzz, as both songs wind up within our top ten— more specifically, our top three— on this week’s edition Top Tracks.
Lil Uzi is tied with Anderson .Paak for most appearances inside the top ten this week, with two apiece. New tracks barely missing out on spots this week include Beast Coast’s “Coast/Clear” (#11), Young Buck‘s “Move” (#13), August Alsina‘s “Talk” remix (#14), and Supa Bwe and Chance The Rapper‘s “Rememory” (#15).
Anderson .Paak wasted little time in following up last year’s Oxnard with another album named for a Central Californian city, Ventura. Arriving last week, the album features a few big-name collaborations, two which appear in our top ten this week. The first is “What Can We Do?”, which features a posthumous cameo from Nate Dogg. It debuts at #10.
A couple weeks ago, Tory Lanez returned with International Fargo, a compilation remixes international hits. “Toast,” for one, samples a song by Jamaican sensation Kfee, who is credited as a guest vocalist here despite providing no new vocals. In its second week out, “Toast” is up 32 places from #41 to #9.
The second track from Anderson .Paak’s Ventura to wind up on our list this week is “Come Home,” which features another massive guest. André 3000 pops up on this one, and winds up with a #8 debut.
So far this year, NBA Youngboy has seemed more committed to dropping loosies on Youtube (the platform he rules) than releasing projects. When sub-two minute tracks dedicated to incarcerated friends break 10 million views within their first week out, as “FreeDDawg” is about to, you can’t blame him. This one debuts at #7.
Trap producer extraordinaire Zaytoven surprised everyone by dropping Make America Trap Again two Fridays ago. On it, he called upon many past collaborators for assists, including Tyga on the track “Club Bitches.” This one debuts at #6.
As we all know by now, Chance The Rapper has an album (or, as he’s been calling it on social media, an “owbum”) on the way later this year. But first, he’s going to have some fun. His latest is a freestyle with Lil Yachty titled after the house where it was apparently recorded. “Atlanta House Freestyle” debuts at #5.
Chris Brown has been teasing a new project titled Indigo recently, and last week, he dropped a new single entitled “Back To Love.” Ostensibly the lead single from the upcoming project, this one debuts at #4.
“That’s A Rack” is arguably the more upbeat and immediately catchy the two new Lil Uzi Vert singles, but it appears below its compatriot in the top ten. The Oogie Mane-produced banger debuts at #3.
The lead single to Schoolboy Q’s upcoming album, CrasH Talk, “Numb Numb Juice,” was a little unorthodox, a very brief, a little abrasive slice aggro West Coast rap. For his second single though, Q’s returned much closer to the center the mainstream. “Chopstix” features the ever-marketable Travis Scott, and it debuts at #2.
“Sanguine Paradise” may lack the quick pulse and immediately repeatable hook “That’s A Rack,” but it’s arguably the bigger grower the two. This one debuts at #1.
