Top Tracks: Kanye West, Quavo, & Lil Yachty's "Face Down" Hits #1

Kanye's unreleased collab with Quality Control's Quavo and Lil Yachty, "Face Down" makes its debut at the top of the chart.
This week, with few major releases outside of Kanye West and Kid Cudi's Kids See Ghosts Future's Superfly soundtrack, an unusual cast of artists made the top ten. Making their  debuts are Ozuna, a fast-rising Latin trap sensation from Puerto Rico, and 070 Shake, a relatively recent G.O.O.D. Music signee who got her big break on Kanye's Ye. Popping up for the first time in months are King Los, who has a Wiz Khalifa feature to thank, and Lil Twist, who' only here because he inserted himself into Drake and Pusha T's now-dormant beef.
This week, Chicagoans Kanye West and Chief Keef are the only artists with multiple appearances in the top ten. New tracks barely missing out on spots this week include Kanye, Kid Cudi, and Mos Def's "Kids See Ghosts" (#12), Future and Lil Wayne's "Drive Itself" (#13), Jay Rock's "The Bloodiest" (#14), and Vic Mensa and G-Eazy's "Reverse" (#15).

10. Chief Keef - I Need More

After being shot at outside of a hotel in NYC last weekend, Chief Keef dropped off a new EP called Ottopsy without much warning in the middle of last week. Included on the five-track release is "I Need More," an auto-tune-laden banger. It debuts at #10.

9. Tory Lanez Feat. Ozuna - Pa Mi

For his next release, Tory Lanez is looking to capitalize on the Latin trap wave, which has been a big deal abroad for some time but is quickly taking hold in the US. The first taste of the all-Spanish EP is "Pa Mi," a track that features Ozuna, whose smooth tenor has already racked up billions of streams on its own. This one debuts at #9.

8. King Los Feat. Wiz Khalifa - Dope Dealer

Baltimore spitter King Los has been promising us his 410 Survival Guide project for a good 18 months, and with this single, the rollout might finally be underway. The Wiz Khalifa-assisted "Dope Dealer" debuts at #8.

7. Trippie Redd Feat. Tadoe & Chief Keef - I Kill People!

Either these three recorded this track in a hurry after Tekashi 6ix9ine began slinging threats at Chief Keef two weeks ago, or else they just got lucky with timing. The aggressively-titled "I Kill People!" dovetailed with the escalation of that beef, which had already been raging between Trippie and Tekashi for months. In its second week out, "I Kill People!" is up two places from #9 to #7.

6. Ty Dolla $ign & Jeremih - The Light

After both lending their angelic voices to Kanye's Ye a couple of weeks back, R&B singers extraordinaire 'Mih and Ty announced a joint project called MihTy and shared a first single. The resulting track, "The Light,"  quickly rose up the chart after a Friday release for a #6 debut.

4. Kanye West Feat. John Legend, Kid Cudi & 070 Shake - Ghost Town

Last week, the Jeremih and Ty Dolla $ign-assisted "All Mine" was the only Ye song to debut within our top ten, but falling only shortly outside of it was "Ghost Town." In its second week out, the John Legend, Kid Cudi, and 070 Shake-featuring track is up 13 places from #17 to #3.

3. Lupe Fiasco - I Got a New Mic

Lately, Lupe's seemed more intent on martial arts than rap, and the continuous delays on his upcoming album DROGAS Wave reflect that. To sate fans eager for new music, he dropped off a freestyle over DJ Premier's classic "Nas Is Like" beat, but it's since been taken down. Nevertheless, the freestyle, entitled "I Got a New Mic," debuts at #3. 

2. Lil Twist - Message 2 G.O.O.D. Music

There are people who start shit for attention, and that's annoying enough as it is. But then there are people who have the tiniest connection to an existing beef, and use that as an excuse to jump into the fray, and that's even worse. Lil Twist attempted to throw a "quick lil jab" into the Drake/Pusha T beef, and despite acquiring views as a result, winds up with a startlingly low 21% user rating for his track "Message 2 G.O.O.D. Music." It debuts at #2.
