Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up” has been bubbling since February last year, when the British singer first released her debut single. Back in April, it was released ficially as a single in the states, after which it began climbing up the charts. Just last week, an ficial remix arrived featuring Nicki Minaj and Quavo, which has driven the song even further into the spotlight.
This week, Dave East and Offset are the only artists with multiple appearances in the Top Ten. New songs barely missing out on spots include Young M.A.’s “Petty Wap” (#11), Iggy Azalea and Tyga’s “Kream” (#12), Lil Pump’s “Drug Addicts” (#13), and Doe Boy and Future’s “Back in My Bag” (#14).
10. Dave East – I’m Good Cuz, Enjoy (Detox)
This past week, Harlem’s Dave East became embroiled in a beef with The Bronx’s Tray Pizzy, with the latter kicking thing f with a diss track entitled “Retribution.” East soon fired back with “I’m Good Cuz, Enjoy (Detox),” which debuts at #10.
9. Drake Feat. PartyNextDoor – Ratchet Happy Birthday
Two Fridays ago, as everyone obviously knows by now, Drake released his album Scorpion. Two tracks from it charted last week, and this week, a third has cracked the Top Ten. The PartyNextDoor-assisted “Ratchet Happy Birthday” debuts at #9.
8. YesJulz Feat. BlocBoy JB – Goin Crazy
I guess we should’ve seen this coming? This past week, party promoter YesJulz dropped her debut single, “Goin Crazy,” which also features BlocBoy JB. Since then, it’s been removed from SoundCloud, but not before it racked up an abysmal 12% user approval rating. Still, it debuts at #8.
7. Fabolous – Boo’d Up (Remix)
One three remixes Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up” to chart this week, Fabolous’ take on the ascendant single is the lowest-charting the bunch. His solo take on the hit song debuts at #7.
6. Tee Grizzley Feat. Offset – Untitled
Detroit’s Tee Grizzley just released a project a few months ago, but apparently he’s got more heat on the way. He’s been teasing a new project, and just last week, he dropped f a mysterious untitled track featuring Offset. This one debuts at #6.
5. T-Pain – Boo’d Up (Remix)
Second among our three remixes “Boo’d Up” in the Top Ten this week, T-Pain’s take on the hit has undoubtedly the best user rating, tallying a 93% over the week. This one debuts at #5.
4. Dave East Feat. Rick Ross – Fresh Prince Belaire
Dave East’s second entry the week is a much more commercially-focused fering than “I’m Good Cuz, Enjoy (Detox).” The Rozay-assisted “Fresh Prince Belaire” not only promotes the Maybach maven’s wine company, but also furthers East’s pop accessibility. It debuts at #4.
3. Lil Yachty Feat. Cardi B & Offset – Who Want the Smoke?
When Lil Yachty first previewed a snippet “Who Want the Smoke,” BlocBoy JB was the featured artist. Now that the full version has arrived, rap power couple Offset and Cardi B appear to have replaced the Memphis spitter as the guests on the new single. This one debuts at #3.
2. Nav – Me and My Bitch
This past week, someone leaked an unreleased Nav song that was produced by Metro Boomin. Clearly pissed f by this, Nav responded with an ficial version “Me and My Bitch” soon thereafter. This ficial cut debuts at #2.
1. Ella Mai Feat. Nicki Minaj & Quavo – Boo’d Up (Remix)
The ficial remix Ella Mai’s “Boo’d Up” might not have the user rating the Fabolous and T-Pain versions (both over 90%), but what it does have is clicks. The Nicki Minaj and Quavo-assisted version has over double the views any other song on this week’s list, and thusly it debuts at #1.
