2 Chainz Snags The #1 And #2 Of The Week
Last week was pretty slow as far as new rap singles and albums go. After 2 Chainz, Solange, and DaBaby all dropped projects on March 1st, the only major release of note on the 8th was Juice WRLD's Death Race for Love. That album lands two songs on this week's top ten, but otherwise, it's mostly older stuff. On average, we only get one or two tracks sticking around past their first week in the top ten; this week, all but two are tracks released prior to last week.
2 Chainz leads all artists with three appearances inside of the top ten, with Lil Wayne and Juice WRLD clocking in with two apiece. New songs barely missing out on spots this week include IDK's "Trigger Happy" (#15), Burna Boy's "Dangote" (#19), Freddie Gibbs, Madlib, and Assassin's "Bandana" (#20), and Lil Duke and Gunna's "Petty" (#26).

The first of three Tity Boi tracks is his third collaboration with Travis Scott to date (the first two being Rodeo's "3500" and Pretty Girls Like Trap Music's "4 AM"). "Whip," as this one's called is up 10 spots in its second week out, up from #20 to #10.
9. Uncle Murda Feat. Tory Lanez - 62

After a few weeks away from the chart— a rarity in his beef-filled 2019— Tory Lanez is back inside of the top ten with his recent collaboration with New York veteran Uncle Murda. In its second week out, their "62" is up 13 spots from #22 to #13.
8. Juice WRLD - Hear Me Calling

The first of the two cuts from Juice WRLD's Deathrace for Love to make our chart this week is pre-release single "Hear Me Calling," which was shared in the week leading up to the album's drop date. In its second week out, "Hear Me Calling" is down three places from #5 to #8.
7. Lil Wayne & Ty Dolla $ign Feat. XXXTentacion - Scared of the Dark

Here's where it gets weird. This cut from the Spiderverse soundtrack came out five weeks ago, and hasn't appeared in the top ten since its first week out. But because of a slow week, Lil Wayne, Ty Dolla $ign, and XXXTentacion's "Scared of the Dark" is back in the race. In its fifth week out, this track is up 14 spots from #21 to #7.
6. Summer Walker Feat. Drake - Girls Need Love (Remix)

Much more common and predictable is last week's #1 track falling just a few places and showing up on a second consecutive chart. Drake's remix of Summer Walker's "Girls Need Love" comfortably debuted at #1 last week, and in its second week out, it's down five places from #1 to #6.
5. Yelawolf - Mtn Dew Mouth Freestyle

In the run-up to his upcoming Trunk Muzik 3, Yelawolf's been sharing a freestyle a week since last month, and plenty of them have made the top ten. The latest is "Mtn Dew Mouth Freestyle," which is one of only two new tracks to make the chart this week. It debuts at #5.
4. Chief Keef - Awesome

Even weirder than the case of "Scared of the Dark" is that of Chief Keef's "Awesome," which is making its first appearance on the chart some 10 weeks after its release in early December 2018. In its 10th week out, it's up seven spots from #11 to #4.
3. Juice WRLD Feat. Young Thug - ON GOD

The other one of Juice WRLD's entries inside of the top ten this week is also the second and final track making its debut inside of the chart. Deathrace for Love doesn't feature many guests, and indisputably the biggest is Young Thug, who shows up on "ON GOD." This one debuts at #3.
2. 2 Chainz Feat. Kendrick Lamar - Momma I Hit a Lick

2 Chainz had two songs from RoGttL debut on last week's top ten, and both return this week at the top of the list. The first is the Kendrick Lamar-assisted "Momma I Hit a Lick." In its second week out, the track is up six places from #8 to #2.

"Momma I Hit a Lick" and "2 Dollar Bill" appeared back-to-back towards the bottom of last week's list, and for their second go-round, they're right next to each other again. In its second week out, the Lil Wayne and E-40-assisted "2 Dollar Bill" is up eight places from #9 to #1.
