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 first-place position with “Mercy.” DJ Khaled's “Take It to the Head” tumbles to fourth, clearing the way for last week's Rap Chart-topper, Drake's “HYFR” to claim the runner-up position. No new features earn spots on the chart this week, but additional Rap and R&B/Pop Chart graduates come courtesy of David Banner, Big K.R.I.T., Chris Brown and more.

On our Top Rap Chart, the graduation of Drake's “HYFR” and David Banner's “Californication” to our Top Hip Hop and R&B lineup, clear the way for two new features to take their place: A$AP Rocky's Goldie” and Theophilus London's “Big Spender” enter the lineup on top, debuting along with cuts by Asher Roth, Meek Mill, Snoop Dogg and more. Formerly absent from the chart, Yo Gotti's “Colors” resurfaces in 14th.

On the Top R&B/Pop Chart, the ascent of Chris Brown's “Til I Die” and Ne-Yo's “Burning Up” to our Top Picks clears the way for new features from Maroon 5 (“Payphone”) and B.o.B (“So Hard to Breathe”) to take the lead. Other new additions come courtesy of Nelly Furtado, Jeremih, Nikkiya and more. R. Kelly's “Share My Love” reemerges, thanks to the release of the song's new video, in seventh after a period of absence from our charts.

On the DJBooth's Top Independent Hip Hop Chart, Riz' “Waking Up” enters the chart on top, knocking Cisco Adler's DJBooth-premiered “Lemonade” to second. The former runner-up, Yonas' “One More Time,” tumbles to eighth. After a week on our Top Picks chart, Mac Miller's “The Question” lands in third. All in all, 13 new features earn spots on the chart, leaving six of last week's selections in the running.
