DJ Mustard's new single "Pure Water," which features Migos, debuts at #1 on our chart this week.
It's been far too long since we've heard a full length project from DJ Mustard. The man who brought us heat like Ketchup and 10 Summers earlier this decade hasn't dropped an album since 2016's Cold Summer, but it appears as if that'll soon change. HE took to Zane Lowe's Beats 1 radio show last week to debut a new single— which lands at #1 on our chart this week— and also tease upcoming collaborations with YG, Future, Meek Mill, and Lil Jon. Stay tuned.
James Blake and Tyga, an unlikely pair if I've ever seen one, are the only two artists with multiple appearances on this week's chart. New tracks barely missing out on spots inside the top ten this week include Young M.A.'s "Bake" freestyle (#11), Ariana Grande's "7 Rings" (#12), Yung Bleu's "Time To Myself" (#13), and Kevin Gates' "Therapy Shit 4" (#14).
10. The Weeknd & Gesaffelstein - Lost in the Fire
One of two repeats from last week's top ten is this seemingly one-off collab between The Weeknd and French electronic producer Gesaffelstein. The duo, who previously linked up on a few My Dear Melancholy cuts last year, see their track fall eight places from #2 to #10 in its second week out.
9. Monica - Commitment
We haven't seen Monica on this chart at all within the past three or so years, so there must be something about this track that sets it apart from the rest of hers. "Commitment" debuts at #9.
8. Quando Rondo Feat. Boosie Badazz - 3 Options
Quando Rondo may not be from Baton Rouge, but his label boss, YoungBoy Never Broke Again, is. That's probably how he wound up linking up with the city's main elder statesman, the venerable Boosie Badazz. Their new collab, "3 Options," dropped late two weeks ago, and in its second week out, is up 21 places from #29 to #8.
7. Tyga - Floss in the Bank
This version of "Floss in the Bank"— more on that in a second— arrived almost two weeks ago via Tyga's Soundcloud. After debuting at #5, it's down two spots to #7 in its second week out.
6. James Blake Feat. André 3000 - Where's The Catch?
How great is James Blake's new album?! The incredible Assume Form arrived last Friday, bearing some pretty impressive features along with it. This song in particular, "WHere's The Catch?", ropes in a rare appearance from none other than Three Stacks himself, who delivers a thrilling guest verse. This one debuts at #6.
5. James Blake Feat. Travis Scott & Metro Boomin - Mile High
A second consecutive chart entry for Mr. Blake! "Mile High," which features the powerful one-two punch of Travis Scott and Metro Boomin, arrived a few days before the rest of the album, which certainly helped its position on the chart. It debuts at #5.
4. Logic - Keanu Reeves
How's this for timing? Logic's new single, entitled Keanu Reeves, arrived the same day as the titular actor's new trailer for John Wick 3. It's unclear whether this is taken from an upcoming album, or is just a loosie, but either way, the track debuts at #4.
3. Tyga - Floss in the Bank
Yes, that's another entry for Tyga's "Floss in the Bank." Apparently the Soundcloud release from two weeks ago wasn't technically the "official" release, as the song was only added to streaming services a week ago. In one sense, it's cool that Tyga's in the top ten twice the week, but imagine if all of those views were combined on one version of this song? This iteration of "Floss in the Bank" debuts at #3.
2. DJ Kay Slay Feat. Busta Rhymes & Lil Wayne - They Want My Blood
Last week, it was Imagine Dragons who Lil Wayne lifted up into our top ten; this week, it's DJ Kay SLay. It's a well-known fact that no matter whose song Lil Wayne hops on— it could be an 85 year-old woman from Siberia, it doesn't matter— it'll show up in our top ten. "They Want My Blood" debuts at #2.
1. DJ Mustard Feat. Migos - Pure Water
Migos have been staying busy, with Offset's solo debut still set to follow Quavo and Takeoff's, and Culture III to come shortly afterward. This song's more of a big deal for Mustard, who hasn't exactly flooded the market with new material in the past two years. "Pure Water" debuts at #1.
