Download DJBooth's new App, The PLUG New York, N.Y. -- This week on The DJBooth's Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart, G.O.O.D. Music retain their grip on the top slot with collaborative single “Mercy.” The former runner-up,2 Chainz' “Like Me,” tumbles to fifth, clearing the way for DJ Khaled's “Take It to the Head” to climb from third to second. No new features earn spots among our Top Picks, but Rap and R&B/Pop Chart graduates come courtesy of Kendrick Lamar, Jeremih and more.

On our Top Rap Chart, Kendrick Lamar's "The Recipe" and CyHi the Prynce's "A-Town" make the jump to our Top Hip Hop and R&B lineup, clearing the way for Drake's “HYFR” and David Banner's “Californication” to debut in the top two. CyHi's DJBooth-premiered freestyle, “The Open Letter,” however, enters the chart in the fourth position.

On the Top R&B/Pop Chart, the graduation of Jeremih's “Go to the Mo” and Chris Brown's “Sweet Love” to our Top Hip Hop and R&B Chart clears the way for Breezy's own “Til I Die” and Ne-Yo's “Burning Up” to enter the lineup on top. Also debuting this week are cuts by Rihanna, Tank and The DJBooth newcomer, Sean Fresh.

On the DJBooth's Top Independent Hip Hop Chart, last week's top two, Killer Mike's “Don't Die” and Childish Gambino's “Eat Your Vegetables,” respectively drop off the chart entirely and fall to 10th. Two DJBooth exclusive world premieres, Cisco Adler's “Lemonade” and Yonas' “One More Time,” debut in their place. All in all, 14 fresh records earn spots in the lineup, including an additional Booth-premiered joint by Omniscient (“The Roll Up,” in 19th).
