The Top 10 Most Popular Hip Hop Singles The Week Of 1/21/2013
This week, Nickelus F and Drake reunite for another hit, while A$AP Rocky, 50 Cent, and T.I. make some waves.
What a difference a week makes. While last week we saw some movement in a new direction, this week it appears as though everything has changed on the Top Singles list. Of course there are some exceptions, like 50 Cent. His "Major Distribution" track with Young Jeezy and and Snoop Dogg continues to be a presence - especially since there's a video to match the track now. While that song reached the #6 spot, check out the other nine tracks that dominated our Top Singles list this week.
A Drake Cameo Goes a Long Way, Ask Nickelus F
Nickelus F (also known as Nick Fury) has been popping up a bunch of times over the past few years. His connection to Drake is one that has benefitted him quite a bit. The two have collaborated on a few cuts like the previously unreleased "Look At the Ice" and of course "AM 2 PM." This week Nick and Drake return with "Number 15." Drake promoted the track in his own special way before debuting it on Nickelus F's Vices. It hits the #1 spot this week.
A$AP Rocky Needs Soul Saving, Gunplay Is Here To Help
Weeks (maybe even months) before LongLiveA$AP arrived, A$AP Rocky's songs were circulating and doing big things on the list. They've since fallen off the Top Singles, but are being replaced with new ones. In at #2 is A$AP Rocky's "Who's Gonna Save My Soul." One of the bright spot on his album came from the Gunplay and A$AP Ferg collaboration "Ghetto Symphony." Well Gunplay decided to borrow that for his Cops & Robbers mixtape. That one closes out the list this week at #10.
