A leaked demo from Kanye West entitled "idk" tops our chart this week.
In a perplexing move last week, Kanye West someone dropped a song on Apple Music via the official Yeezy homepage, and said song didn't seem like a planned single. For one, "idk" was labeled a demo. Then there's the fact that Ye's voice doesn't seem to appear on the track at all. Within a few hours, it was taken down, but not before interest was piqued and allowed for the track to reach #1 on our chart this week.
Clocking in with the most appearances within the Top Ten this week is Takeoff, with two tracks from his debut solo album making the cut. New tracks barely missing out on spots this week include Moneybagg Yo, Kevin Gates, and Rvssian's "Fall Down" (#11), Blocboy JB and Lil Uzi Vert's "Don't Say That" (#12), Action Bronson and A$AP Rocky's "Swerve On 'Em" (#13), and Vince Staples and Jay Rock's "Don't Get Chipped" (#15).
10. NBA Youngboy - Not Wrong Now
Underwear company Ethika returned with their second compilation mixtape of hip hop (go figure, right?) last week. Included on The Prophesy: A Blueprint to Future Reality (cool title!) is a new NBA Youngboy track entitled "Not Wrong Now." It debuts at #10.
9. Takeoff - Casper
Following Quavo's lead, who released his solo debut, Quavo Huncho, two weeks ago, Takeoff dropped his own full-length on his own last week. The Lat Rocket lands two tracks in our Top Ten this week, the first of which is "Casper." It debuts at #9.
8. Metro Boomin Feat. 21 Savage, Travis Scott & Kodak Black - No More
Metro Boomin's new album Not All Heroes Wear Capes is jam-packed with stars from the Southern rap ecosystem, and in the running for most star-studded track is certainly "No More." The song, which brings together 21 Savage, Travis Scott, and Kodak Black, debuts at #8.
7. Takeoff Feat. Quavo - She Gon Wink
For his second entry in the bottom half of the Top Ten, Takeoff calls upon his fellow Migo Quavo for an assist on one of the few features on The Last Rocket. "She Gon Wink" debuts at #7.
6. Mariah Carey - A No No
We're now less than two weeks away from the release of Mariah Carey's fifteenth album, Caution. She already dropped lead single "The Distance" a few weeks back, and then just last week, released a follow up in the form of "A No No." It debuts at #6.
5. Boosie Badazz - Thug Life
Boosie Badazz has been hyping up a project entitled My Badazz 3.5, and while he simultaneously dropped a new track last week, we don't know if it's a single from the album or not. Nevertheless, "Thug Life" debuts at #5.
4. Tyga Feat. Nicki Minaj - Dip
Following a successful summer, Tyga packaged together two new singles last month for a one-two punch of potential new hits. One of them was "Dip," which upped its chances of radio play last week by tacking on a Nicki Minaj verse. This remix debuts at #4.
Swizz Beatz shared his new album Poison on Friday, but before the release date, shared one last single in the form of a barred-up collab between him, Kendrick Lamar, Jadakiss, and Styles P. Following the suit of previous singles featuring Young Thug and Lil Wayne, respectively, "SOmething Dirty/Pic Got Us" debut inside the Top Ten at #3.
2. Future - Os
In addition to dropping projects left and right this year, Future's also been sporadically sharing loosies via his YouTube channel. The latest is the Mike Will Made It-produced "Os," which debuts at #2.
1. Kanye West - idk (Demo)
As discussed in the intro, we don't know too much (if anything) about this new Kanye demo. He is, however still ostensibly releasing Yandhi sometime this year, so keep your eyes peeled for "idk" on that tracklist. In the meantime, it debuts at #1.
