Kodak Black's user approval finally matches his viewcount in this edition of Top Tracks.
For over a year now, Kodak Black's been in the curious position of appearing in our Top Ten more than the vast majority of his peers, but never seeming to land tracks with more than a 70% user approval rating. People keep checking for him, it seems, while continuing to be disappointed with the results he yields. Over and over, we've seen Kodak Black songs with absolutely abysmal, 20% ratings break into the top five. This week, he gets a break courtesy of another site favorite (but one whose numbers line up a little more evenly), Lil Wayne.
Kodak, along with Dave East, leads all artists with two appearances in the top ten. New tracks barely missing out on spots include Dave East, Chris Brown, and Kap G's "Bentley Truck" (#12), Rich The Kid and Trippie Redd's "Early Morning Trappin" (#13), Kodak Black's "Brand New Glizzy" (#15), and Farruko, Nicki Minaj, 21 Savage, Bad Bunny, and Rvssian's "Krippy Kush Remix" (#17).
10. Big K.R.I.T. - Ready for the Next
K.R.I.T. just dropped off his album 4eva is a Mighty Long Time, and he waited very little time to return with a follow-up track. The Terrace Martin-produced "Ready for the Next" is taken from the soundtrack a new football documentary entitled 89 Blocks. This one makes its debut at #10.
9. Roy Woods Feat. dvsn & PnB Rock - Balance
Roy Woods' new album, Say Less, arrives this Friday, December 1st, and he's spent the past couple of weeks ramping up excitement with some singles. Following the title track, which arrived earlier this month, we get the dvsn and PnB Rock-assisted "Balance." It debuts at #9.
8. Pi'erre Bourne Feat. Playboi Carti - Yo Pi'erre!
Many producers get their names and/or tags from existing songs (for instance, Mike Will Made It's name came from a Gucci Mane freestyle and Metro Boomin's "want some more" tag came from a Young Thug track). Pi'erre Bourne got his iconic tag from The Jamie Foxx Show, so he's working backwards and retroactively making a song out of it. His and Playboi Carti's "Yo Pi'erre!" debuts at #8.
7. Dave East Feat. Offset - Checc
Dave East's been teaming up with some unlikely out-of-towners as of late, and the latest such instance comes on a track from his recently-released mixtape, Karma. Offset supplies the assist on "Checc," which debuts at #7.
6. Bryson Tiller - Birmingham
Bryson Tiller's sophomore album came and went pretty quickly earlier this year, so the time feels right for him to be in "mixtape mode," as he recently tweeted. "Birmingham" is a freestyle over YBN Nahmir's "Rubbin Off the Paint," and despite being removed from SoundCloud, it still debuts at #6.
5. Kodak Black - 201519971800
I already mentioned the Lil Wayne song that performed even better than "201519971800," but this one did pretty well for itself too. The single from Project Baby 2: All Grown Up debuts at #5 and finishes with an 81% user approval rating.
4. Dave East Feat. Lil Uzi Vert - Don't Try Me
One of only two holdovers from last week, "Don't Try Me" has Dave East linking up with another unlikely collaborator, Lil Uzi Vert. After debuting at #1 a week ago, this one's down three spots to finish at #4 in its second week out.
3. 50 Cent Feat. Jeremih - Still Think I'm Nothing
The second of two consecutive holdovers from last week, and first of two consecutive tracks by 40+ year-old New Yorkers, "Still Think I'm Nothing" is 50 Cent's best-performing track on our chart in years. In its second week out, the Jeremih-assisted track holds steady at #3.
2. Mase - The Oracle
Someone who's been absent from our top ten for even longer than 50 (if he ever even appeared here in the first place) is Mase, the long-dormant Bad Boy rapper. Of course, there's nothing that brings an artist out of the woodwork (and makes them relevant again) like beef, and after Cam'ron dissed Mase on his new tape, you know he had to clap back. The Ennio Morricone-sampling "The Oracle" debuts at #2.
1. Kodak Black Feat. Lil Wayne - Codeine Dreaming
Fans seem to be fucking with the bonus tracks from Project Baby 2: All Grown Up much more than they ever fucked with the original. Following the previous Kodak track on this list, "201519971800," "Codeine Dreaming" debuts at the top spot and garners an 88% user approval rating, Kodak's highest in recent memory.
