Kodak Black's big comeback single, the Travis Scott and Offset-assisted "Zeze," goes #1 in its first week out.
Since getting out of prison earlier this year, Kodak Black has given us a couple of songs, namely "If I'm Lyin I'm Flyin" and "Wake Up in the Sky," the latter of which counts as a feature on a Gucci Mane song that also features Bruno Mars. Despite those, consider the new single "Zeze," released last week, to be his triumphant comeback. Teased for the last month or so, the song features Travis Scott and Offset, and should drum up some excitement for Kodak's upcoming album. "Zeze" is our #1 track of the week.
This week, Future, Young Thug, Offset, Trippie Redd, and Drake are all tied with most appearances in the top ten, with two apiece. New tracks barely missing out on spots this week include THEY. and Wiz Khalifa's "What I Know Now" (#12), Joell Ortiz's "Reflection" (#15), BlocBoy JB's "Go DJ" (#16), and Little Mix and Nicki Minaj's "Woman Like Me" (#17).
10. Usher Feat. Future - Stay At Home
Last Friday, Usher surprised us with a new album, A, that was produced entirely by Zaytoven. A highlight, "Stay At Home," features another frequent Zaytiggy collaborator, Future. This one debuts at #10.
9. Denzel Curry - R.I.P 2 R.I.P | R.1.P 2 R.1.P
Denzel Curry's still on a victory lap from his latest album, TA13OO, and so he decided to share a new freestyle last week. "R.I.P 2 R.I.P | R.1.P 2 R.1.P," which shares its title formatting with the tracks from Curry's recent album, is the South Florida rapper's take on Playboi Carti's "R.I.P." It debuts at #9.
8. Jeremih & Ty Dolla $ign - Goin Thru Some Thangz
After a few months of false starts and delays, we finally have a release date for Jeremih and Ty Dolla $ign's hotly-anticipated collaborative album MihTy. The joint effort will be out on October 26, and it'll include recently-released track "Goin Thru Some Thangz," which makes its debut at #8 on the chart this week.
7. Trippie Redd - Nelly
Looks like somebody posted some tracks on Soundcloud without permission... Last week, frequent Trippie Redd collaborator ItsNotHarold uploaded a couple of new Trippie joints to his account, including the Zaytoven-produced "Nelly." Well, now they've both been taken down. Nevertheless, "Nelly" debuts at #7.
6. Young Thug & Future - Whole Lotta Racks
Hey look, another unsanctioned leak! For basically the full year after they initially shared Super Slimey, Future and Young Thug have been plagued with leaks of unreleased collaborations. The latest is the TM88-produced "Whole Lotta Racks," which debuts at #6.
5. Young Thug Feat. Offset - On The Rvn
Moments after the release of his September EP On The Rvn, Young Thug tweeted that the title track was supposed to feature Offset, and that a new version would soon be uploaded. Well, it took almost a month, but the new and improved "On The Rvn" has arrived, Offset and all. It debuts at #5.
4. Trippie Redd & YoungBoy Never Broke Again - Move Move
The other of the aforementioned two Trippie Redd tracks that ItsNotHarold uploaded to Soundcloud, seemingly without permission, is "Move Move." This one's produced by Cashmoney AP and features NBA Youngboy, so it's likely that we'll soon hear this high-profile cut elsewhere soon. "Move Move" debuts at #4.
3. Quavo Feat. Drake - Flip The Switch
Early reviews of Quavo's debut solo album, Quavo Huncho, haven't been stellar, but you can't deny that he got some massive names on there. In addition to Travis Scott, Cardi B, Kid Cudi, and Madonna (?!), Drake pops up on "Flip The Switch," which debuts at #3.
2. Bad Bunny Feat. Drake - MIA
This one was long in the works, as Drake was rumored to have worked with Puerto Rican sensation Bad Bunny close to the start of the year, but we only just got their first collab last week. "MIA" has already racked up 35 million views on YouTube in less than a week, and seems destined for chart success. On this chart, it debuts at #2.
1. Kodak Black Feat. Travis Scott & Offset - Zeze
"Zeze" feels like the start of Kodak Black's rollout of his next album. The d.a. doman-produced cut has star power and hit potential, with both Travis Scott and Offset delivering memorable guest spots. This one debuts at #1.
