R. Kelly's "It's On" and 2 Chainz' "Riot (Remix)" debut on the chart today, claiming 17th and 19th. Graduating from our Rap and R&B/Pop Charts along with Chainz' cut are records by Far East Movement, Chief Keef and more.

On our Top Rap Chart, the graduation of 2 Chainz' “No Lie” and Chief Keef's “I Don't Like (Remix)” make the jump to our Top Hip Hop and R&B lineup, clearing the way for David Banner's “Amazing” (a new addition) and Nas' “Daughters” (a former Top Pick) to claim the top two. Other new additions come courtesy of Meek Mill and Twista, and joints by DJ Drama, Wale and Big K.R.I.T. reemerge after a period of absence from the chart.

On the Top R&B/Pop Chart, former front-runners Far East Movement (“Dirty Bass”) and Flo Rida (“Whistle”) graduate to our Top Hip Hop and R&B lineup. K'NAAN's “Hurt Me Tomorrow,” a new feature, and Rihanna's “Where Have You Done,” formerly fourth, take their place in the top two. Also debuting are cuts by Sammy Adams, Ywada and D-Why.

On the DJBooth's Top Independent Hip Hop Chart, BRKF$T CLUB's “The Fellowship” tumbles from first to fourth after two weeks on top, and the former runner-up, Chris Webby's “I'm in Here,” drops from second to eighth. Formerly absent from the chart, OnCue's "Rich Kid" and G-Eazy's "Marilyn" resurface in sixth and 11th.
