What else could land at #1 this week other than Young Money posse cut "No Frauds"?
If the only two sure things in life are death and taxes, the only two sure things for our Top Tracks #1s are disses and Drake. This week, Nicki Minaj killed two birds with one stone and gave us both. Her, Drizzy, and Lil Wayne's "No Frauds" was a lock to top our chart as soon as it dropped, and now that the time has come to tally it all up, there are no surprises here.
There's also nothing shocking about Nicki appearing the most on this week's list, nor is it a stunner that Wayne equaled her mark of three songs, but in dead-heat with them is also 2 Chainz, which might surprise you. New songs barely missing the cut this week include The Game's "What Else" (#11), Playboi Carti and Lil Uzi Vert's "Woke Up Like Dis" (#12), Juelz Santana, Migos, and Jim Jones' "D's Up" (#13), and Nipsey Hussle's "Grindin" (#16).
10. 2 Chainz Feat. Quavo & Gucci Mane - Good Drank 2.0
Tity Boi's first of three appearances this week comes via the re-done version of his Hibachi For Lunch highlight "Good Drank," which is pretty much unchanged from the original except for that choir that assists Quavo on the enormously catchy hook. In its second week out, "Good Drank 2.0" is down one spot from #9 to #10.
9. Raekwon Feat. Lil Wayne - My Corner
Raekwon's got a new album, The Wild, coming out on March 24th, and after disappointing some people (at least me) with his last single, the G-Eazy-featuring "Purple Brick Road," he fires back with the blazing hot "My Corner," which happens to feature Weezy F. Baby. This track, the third we've heard from The Chef's upcoming album, debuts at #9.
8. Frank Ocean - Chanel
Between releasing Channel Orange in 2012 and Endless in 2016, Frank Ocean gave us all of a couple tracks, "Memrise," and "At Your Best," both of which dropped on Soundcloud and then quickly disappeared from the internet. But on Friday, a mere seven months after releasing Blonde, the artist formerly known as Lonnie Breaux broke the silence much more quickly than usual with "Chanel." The immaculate new track debuts at #8.
7. Desiigner - Outlet
The streak of Desiigner's new single appearing in our top ten continues this week, with "Outlet" making its fifth consecutive appearance on our chart. What's more, it actually fared better this week than it did last week. In its fifth week out, "Outlet" is up one spot from #8 to #7.
6. Rick Ross Feat. Young Thug & Wale - Trap Trap Trap
Rick Ross is now the only person standing between us and utter Drizzy domination next weekend, so luckily he's got a ton of high-profile features on that upcoming album, Rather You Than Me. Young Thug and Wale are the ones who get called up by Rozay on the blatantly-titled "Trap Trap Trap." The new track debuts at #6.
5. Nicki Minaj - Regret In Your Tears
4. 2 Chainz - Smartphone
Instead of an extended Twitter rant, 2 Chainz responded to last week's leak of his unfinished trap "It's a Vibe" in the best way possible: giving us official new music. "Smartphone" was one of two tracks he dropped that night-- the other being a CDQ, mastered version of "It's a Vibe." The first of those two tracks makes its debut at #4.
3. Nicki Minaj Feat. Lil Wayne - Changed It
Despite not being able to top "No Frauds" in viewcount, the other Nicki/Weezy song that dropped last week bests it in user approval rating, notching an 83%. If you chart the approval ratings of all three, you'll see a correlation here: more Wayne, more approval. "Changed It" debuts at #3.
2. 2 Chainz Feat. Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz & Jhene Aiko - It's a Vibe
After a subpar version of this one leaked the other day, Tity 2 Necklace came back with the CDQ, which benefitted this chill, acoustic guitar-driven track quite well. Chainz nabs three of R&B's strongest talents, and it paid off: "It's a Vibe" currently sits at a 93% user rating. The track debuts at #2.
1. Nicki Minaj Feat. Drake & Lil Wayne - No Frauds
Here it is, the most obvious #1 ever. Nicki not only finally offered a response to Remy Ma, and did so alongside Drizzy: a sure bet if there ever was one. What's also worth noting is that Murda Beatz produced not only this, but also 2 Chainz's "It's a Vibe," meaning that he's got both top tracks on HNHH right now. "No Frauds" debuts at #1.
