DJBooth Chart Recap: Week of 06/10/2012
New York, N.Y. -- This week on The DJBooth's Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart, DJ Drama's “We in This B*tch” and Rick Ross' “Touch 'N You” drop to fourth and seventh. Taking their place in the top two are Lil Wayne's “My Homies Still” (formerly #1 on our Rap Chart) and Lupe Fiasco's “Around My Way” (formerly third). No new features debut among our Top Picks, but further Rap and R&B/Pop chart graduates come courtesy of Meek Mill, Curren$y and Omarion.
On our Top Rap Chart, the graduation of Lil Wayne's “My Homies Still” and Meek Mill's “Amen” to our Rap Chart clears the way for Wiz Khalifa's “Work Hard Play Hard” (a former Top Pick) and The Throne's “No Church in the Wild” to claim the top two. G.O.O.D. Music's “Mercy” resurfaces in 15th after a week away from our charts. Debuting this week are cuts by Waka Flocka Flame, Hit Boy and Curren$y.
On the Top R&B/Pop Chart, the ascent of Omarion's “Let's Talk” and Jeremih's “Late Nights” to our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart allows Jay Sean's “I'm All Yours” to climb from third to claim first, and Flo Rida's “Run” to debut in second. Also new this week are cuts by Chris Brown, Frank Ocean and The-Dream. Formerly absent from the chart, Breezy's “Don't Wake Me Up” reemerges in 11th.
On the DJBooth's Top Independent Hip Hop Chart, Mac Miller's "On a Roll" debuts in first, knocking Childish Gambino's "Silk Pillow" to second. Last week's runner-up, Josh Sallee's "Saratoga," tumbles to fifth. All in all, 13 new records earn spots in the lineup, among them DJBooth-premiered jams from Music Class, Prote-J and Quite Nyce.
