Eminem wins back his fans, and the #1 spot, with the “Chloraseptic” remix.
The majority of Eminem fans seemed disappointed with his recent album Revival, to say the least, and the self-appointed “Rap God” seems to have heard all of the complaints. He responded lat week with a remix of album track “Chloraseptic,” and it’s done what the ret of the LP failed to do. The remix debuts at #1 this week with 93% user approval.
Elsewhere, Kendrick Lamar is the only artist with multiple appearances in this week’s top ten. New tracks barely missing out on spots include Zoey Dollaz and Lil Wayne’s “Mula” remix (#11), Lil Durk’s “1 (773) Vulture” (#12), Young Chop, PartynextDoor, and Chief Keef’s “I Need a Break” (#13), and Turk, Lil Wayne, and Kodak Black’s “Fuck How it Turn Out” remix.
10. Wale – The Weekend (Remix)
This past week, Wale lent a remix to SZA’s CTRL highlight “The Weekend,” attempting to offer the male flipside of the infidelity narrative that the TDE singer shared. His remix debuts at #10.
9. Tekashi69 Feat. Fetty Wap & A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie – KEKE
Tekashi69’s looking to break into the mainstream after the initial chart success of “GUMMO,” and tapping two more established stars from his region for his next single is a good start. After debuting at #3 last week, the Fetty Wap and A Boogie-assisted “KEKE” is down six spots to finish at #9 in its second week out.
8. Kodak Black – Free Cool Pt. 2
Kodak Black went almost a month without dropping music, which is a crazy long time for him, but he finally returned after the holiday with “Free Cool Pt. 2.” Like many of Kodak’s tracks, this one scored a low user score (36%) but still managed to chart. “Free Cool Pt. 2” debuts at #8.
7. DJ Carnage Feat. Mac Miller & Madeintyo – Learn How to Watch
As far as random collabs go, it doesn’t get much weirder than DJ Carnage’s latest single, which has been long in the works. Mac Miller and Madeintyo lend assists to “Learn How to Watch,’ which scroes an 86% user approval rating and debuts at #7.
6. Kendrick Lamar Feat. SZA – All The Stars
These two TDE stars’ contribution to the Black Panther soundtrack is rather poppy by TDE standards, but that doesn’t seem to have any effect on its success. In its second week out, “All The Stars” garners an 89% user rating and falls four places from #2 to #6.
5. Lil Wayne Feat. Drake – Family Feud
The clear victor of the past two weeks, Lil Wayne and Drake’s freestyle over Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s 4:44 collab, manages to remain on the chart for a third straight week, a rare feat. In its third week out, their “Family Feud” remix falls four places from #1 to #5.
4. 21 Savage – Pause
Welp, 21 Savage photoshopped his knife tattoo onto Martin Luther King Jr.’s forehead for his latest release. Fortunately, the song is a long-lost collab with Metro Boomin, possibly from the Savage Mode sessions, so “Pause” easily winds up in our top ten. This one debuts at #4.
. Lil Uzi Vert, TM88 & Southside – Mood
Lil Uzi’s latest track is a three-way collab between him and 808 Mafia’s two biggest names, TM88 and Southside. “Mood” debuted at #4 last week, and in its second week out, it’s up one spot to finish at #3.
2. Jay Rock Feat. Kendrick Lamar & Future – King’s Dead
Another cut from the Black Panther soundtrack surfaced this past week, this one even more star-studded than the last. Just like “All The Stars” before it, Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, and Future’s “King’s Dead” debuts at #2.
1. Eminem Feat. 2 Chainz & Phresher – Chloraseptic Remix
A return to bars after a disappointing album? Check. An unlikely collaboration? Check. A diss? Check. Eminem’s “Chloraseptic” remix has all the makings of a track that would easily hit number one, so naturally, it did. This one debuts at #1 with more than 10,000 views more than its closest competitor.
